Holiday Gift Christmas Duck With Antlers Kids Toy Helps Fight Pediatric Cancer


Aflac once again is giving back to the community for the holidays and is inviting the public to join in. This time they've partnered with cause marketing conscious Macy’s for the perfect gift this Christmas season: a cute limited edition plush Aflac Holiday Duck that comes complete with antlers, earmuffs and a cozy red scarf. Available in 6" and 10" sizes, the cuddly soft plush stuffed animal toy even talks, quacking "Aflac" when you squeeze it. Making this even more meaningful, this year's special do-good duck was designed by 16 year-old leukemia patient Monica Sandoval of Winder, Georgia.

The best part of all is that when you buy these you're not only giving a child or kid-at-heart adult a novel holiday present or stocking stuffer that they'll never forget. Come to think of it you might want to get an extra one of these adorable ducks for yourself. Pediatric cancer treatment and research also benefits because proceeds go toward both treatment and research at the participating children's cancer facility closest to where each duck is purchased.


The Aflac Holiday Duck retails for just $10 for the 6-inch duck and $15 for the 10-inch version. These are available at more than 600 participating Macy’s stores across the U.S. and online at -- but remember they are a limited edition and this is the only year they will be available. All net proceeds go to fighting kids cancer. Since 2001 the sales of the Aflac Holiday Duck each year have raised more than three million dollars.
