SC Johnson Launches Happy Thanksgathering

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

When was the last time you were together with family for the holidays? In our house, my husband and I are always talking about how we wish family could be with us. My dad lives in New York and nothing would make me happier than to have him here for the holidays just once.

When friends and families can't be together at Thanksgiving, celebrating may become a little less joyful. In fact, nearly half of Americans (45 percent) say they would skip certain family traditions if they had to spend Thanksgiving alone, while nearly one in five (19 percent) would skip the holiday entirely. So this Thanksgiving, SC Johnson is launching Happy Thanksgathering™, giving families who might not be together this holiday season the chance to gather, to give thanks and to celebrate.

According to a recent consumer survey conducted by SC Johnson, nearly half (46 percent) of Americans who have spent a major fall or winter holiday away from their family do so due to financial limitations. Two in five Americans report they will not be home with their loved ones this Thanksgiving. The survey also shows that the average cost of holiday travel between November and January is approximately $560.

Now through Wed, Nov. 25, consumers can visit for daily chances to enter a sweepstakes to win a $1,000 “Help Me Get Home” Visa rewards card to put toward a trip home this holiday season. They also have the option to enter a second sweepstakes for the chance to win a $250 “Help Me Host” gift card to help pay for a holiday feast with loved ones.

The Happy Thanksgathering™ program follows the launch of the newest series of ads for SC Johnson's “A Family Company” campaign, which can be viewed here on YouTube. The new advertisements reinforce the importance of family in modern, relatable, authentic and diverse ways, reminding families that SC Johnson is on their side.
