We officially have 2 weeks until summer vacation! With all the rain in Texas, summer will be a welcomed season, filled with parties, fun and relaxation!
I have plans to start each summer morning with an ice cold Diet Coke. Not only will it get my morning started, it calms my nerves and prepares me for the day ahead. It’s almost a problem, knowing how much I depend on that one Diet Coke. Knowing I have friends who are as dependent as I am, it’s okay, though. …Right?
When I went to Sam’s Club a few weeks ago, I noticed they were sampling Coca-Cola, making friends smile with free cans of their favorite soda. I read about the Share It Forward campaign, and I was in!
I then noticed Coca-Cola launched a new line of cans, featuring nicknames instead of actual names, I knew I’d have to incorporate these drinks into my own sharing spree, too! So I picked up a case of Diet Coke and began my mission.
I served the Diet Coke at a Memorial Day party, and sat in awe as I thought about virtually sharing a drink with my Dad, who lives hundreds of miles away. But as I went through the cans left over, I noticed nicknames like “BFF”, “Soulmate” and “Mom”… and I decided to do a few random acts of kindness.
I started with my neighbor, giving her an ice cold Diet Coke marked “friend” before she left for soccer practice.
I then shared a “Soulmate” Diet Coke with my husband, knowing this can was perfectly stated.
A friend stopped by to pick up the shirt I let her daughter borrow. I gave her a “BFF” Diet Coke, knowing she is always there for me and my family.
And finally, I sent my son to school with a “Superstar” Diet Coke for one of his teachers. I know the perk may be just what someone needs to get through the final two weeks of school!
I was so glad the case had 35 cans inside… it was perfect for sharing at a party, handing out to those we love and storing extras in the refrigerator! I’m going to head back over to Sam’s Club for another case soon – my children want to see if we get different nicknames to share with more friends!
Make sure to follow your favorite drink on social media and keep up on all of the fun things going on this summer!
