Father’s Day and Every Day, Take Time to Be a Dad

On Sunday, millions of kids across America celebrated their dads, and everything they’ve done for them. If you’re a dad, you’ll know that it’s an incredibly special and rewarding role. Sure, it has its challenges and may not always be easy but it’s the simple everyday moments you share with your kids that leave the biggest impact and bring the most joy.

So this Father’s Day and every day, we want to help you to Take Time to Be a Dad.

To remind dads of just how much of a difference they can make in their kid’s lives, we’ve partnered with the Ad Council and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services on a new public service campaign to help dads get more involved in their kid’s lives.

The tagline “Take time to be a dad today” is part of our ongoing effort to encourage dads to play an active role in their children’s lives. Our new campaign features kids talking about their dads, and the ways in which their fathers contribute to their lives. Through these children’s voices, the PSAs aim to communicate to fathers that their presence is important to their child’s well-bring, and support men in their commitment to responsible fatherhood. Dads can then visit or call 1-877-4DAD411 for parenting tips, fatherhood programs, and other resources.

Through the Ad Council, the new PSAs will be distributed as radio and TV spots to media outlets nationwide this week.

Do you know someone who could benefit from these resources? Share the PSAs and spread the word.
