Change Your Clock - Change Your Battery® #Giveaway - Ends 11-19



It’s hard to believe that we just changed our clocks back from Daylight Saving Time.  This year the time change marked the 25th anniversary of the annual Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program.  Energizer and the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) are once again working with local fire departments nationwide to raise awareness on the importance of working smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in helping to keep families safe in their homes. 

38% percent of fatal fire injuries occur in homes with no smoke alarms, while 24% occur in homes in which at least one smoke alarm is present but fails to operate, frequently due to dead or missing batteries.*

The Change Your Clock Change Your Battery® program is just one of the ways Energizer brings to life the company’s commitment to making a positive impact in communities across the country. that’s positivenergy™   For more information, please visit energizer.com and facebook.com/energizerbunny.


Win it:  One lucky reader will win a Family Safety Kit (ARV $78) complete with a reusable grocery tote containing:
One 2-pack of Energizer® MAX® Batteries (9v) with Power Seal Technology – Dependable, powerful performance for the devices that help keep your family safe; now hold their charge when stored for up to 5 years
One Energizer® Flameless Wax Candle – Enjoy the realistic flicker of a scented wax candle without the worry of open flame or hassle of soot and dripping wax
One Energizer® Weatheready® Safety Light – Waterproof flashlight powered by AA, AAA or C cell batteries; includes safety whistle and imprinted preparedness checklist
One Kidde Battery-Operated Combination Carbon Monoxide and Smoke Alarm  

This giveaway will end November 19th at 12:01 AM EST. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email. If no response, a new winner will be chosen. Open to residents of the US.

    In the fall, it isn't too bad and light in the morning. In the spring when they change, we have about 2 weeks where it is still dark when the kids go to school in the morning. Lightens it up in fall
