We joke around here at NFI that on Father's Day, like one of those blowout sales, "Everything must go, go, go!"
This year was no exception, as we were fortunate to have a lot of great opportunities to spread the simple message that kids need good dads.
Here are a few highlights of some of the things we did:
- We gave Dwyane Wade, Miami Heat superstar, a 2011 Fatherhood Award. Here he is on CNN on Father's Day talking about the award and about being a dad.
- We honored LS1 Christopher Cady, US Navy, with the 2011 Military Fatherhood Award in a ceremony near his base, Naval Base Kitsap, in Bremerton, WA. Cady was also honored at the White House as a Champion of Change. Read about Chris on the White House website here.
- We gave Nissan a Fatherhood Award for its funny and heartwarming TV spot, "Baby." Go to Nissan's news site to see the ad and a photo of NFI president, Roland C. Warren, handing the Fatherhood Award to VP of Nissan Marketing John Brancheau, who posted on this blog last week!
