Banana Boat brand sunscreen has a new program designed to get families outdoors to play, and when you do, not only will you have a great time, but the Hole in The Wall Gang Summer Camp will benefit.

Fun Outside! Get out with your friends and family and enjoy! Banana Boat 101 Days of SummerEvery time a parent takes the Banana Boat Facebook pledge to get outdoors and play with their kids, the company will donate a bottle of sunscreen (up to 10,000 bottles) to the Hole in the Wall Gang, the camp founded by Paul Newman for children coping with cancer and serious illnesses.

I’m a sucker for big companies who do good deeds, so you know I’m excited about this.

The screens (computers & TV) are all so tempting, but we live in Los Angeles, and the weather’s so great here, we really need to get out and enjoy it as much as we can. Especially now that it’s summer!
