SMILING IT FORWARD™ with TYLENOL® and Alyson Hannigan

As a mom, it absolutely breaks my heart when my little one is sick.  The puny eyes, the cough, and the overall lack of energy and spunk make me wish I could take the sickness right out of her little body.

If only it were that easy!

Instead, I have to rely on my arsenal of remedies– a collection of Disney movies, the coziest blanket in the house, a good strawberry smoothie, and TYLENOL®.

TYLENOL® is actually the #1 brand recommended by pediatricians.  I know that our personal pediatrician recommends it by name.  He even includes a spot on our check-up forms telling us how much to dispense, based on Raileigh’s weight.   TYLENOL® has been used by moms for over twenty years. It is designed to relieve minor aches and pains due to the common cold, flu, headache, sore throat and toothache.

The best part about being sick is when it is all over— when Raileigh gives me that full-fledged ear to ear smile, relieved to no longer feel so yucky.  You know the smile– the one that says “Mom!  I cannot wait to run around again!“.


TYLENOL® knows the importance of this end-of-sickness smile.  They became inspired by all these “feeling better” smiles that were popping up all across the internet.  In fact, TYLENOL® was so inspired that they started a campaign called SMILING IT FORWARD™.  To get the word out, they teamed up with celebrity mom Alyson Hannigan {star of How I Met Your Mother and mom to two little girls}.

Let me explain a bit about how SMILING IT FORWARD™ works.

  • Visit
  • Share a photo that makes you smile.  Chances are, it will make someone else smile, too!
  • For each photo shared, TYLENOL® will make a $1 donation to Children’s Health Fund, helping to ensure a doctor’s visit is always within reach for children in need*

I am SMILING IT FORWARD™ because I want every mom to see that “feeling better” smile.  Without access to a doctor, a child may be sick longer or experience worse symptoms.  By simply sharing a photo {which isn’t difficult or time-consuming in the least bit}, I am doing a small part to help a sick child in need.

Together, we can set the power of giving in motion.  I want to invite each and every one of you to share smiles of good health to help children in need.

Let’s keep SMILING IT FORWARD™ and make a difference in the life of a child today.
