Elgin St Thomas Public Health is encouraging everyone to give a gift that supports
the health of their friends and family members, by providing ideas and offering
a few holiday giveaways to their Facebook followers.
"We want you to pick up a few gift ideas and know what we do, where we do it and
how to learn more about staying healthy today and during the festive season," explains
Carolyn Kuntz, Director of Health Promotion. Liking our Facebook page helps people
stay connected with public health messages.
Starting December 9, 2013, anyone interested in participating should log into Facebook
and "Like" www.Facebook.com/ESTPH
as well as the 'Health for the Holidays' post of the day - then "Share" that post.
New winners will be chosen daily and you can enter as often as you like for free.
Some of the gifts of health include "Welcome to Parenting" and "Safe WinterTravel"
kits, Powerbrushes® and bus passes. The goal is to help ESTPH reach 500 "Likes"
on their page and spread the word about public health. The community is encouraged
to comment on valuable information or share items of interest with their friends.
