Kimberly-Clark and ABC's 'The View' Award $400,000 for Room Makeovers in the Room-A-Day Giveaway Sweepstakes

DALLAS, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- To help make your home a special place for family and friends, Kimberly-Clark Corporation has teamed up with ABC's "The View" for year three of the Room-A-Day Giveaway sweepstakes to award 16 lucky winners $25,000 each for a room makeover. Interior Designer, Author and Host of Dress My Nest's, Thom Filicia, on behalf of Kimberly-Clark, will launch the sweepstakes live today on "The View", and reveal his transformation of the show's out-dated dressing room area into a comfortable home-away-from-home for their celebrity guests.


Today through March 6, enter the sweepstakes daily online at, or via tear pads in participating retail stores. A total of 16 winners will be chosen; fifteen winners will be announced during the course of the "The View" program from Feb. 2 to Feb. 15, which airs at 11a.m. ET on the ABC Television Network. The 16th and final winner will be revealed on the Room-A-Day Giveaway Web site on or around March 13.

"At Kimberly-Clark we understand that family is at the heart of every home," said Laura Keely, Director of Kimberly-Clark's Consumer Promotion Marketing. "Today budgets are tight and families are spending more time in their homes, so we're thrilled to provide 16 families with a $25,000 room makeover to inspire them to enjoy those special family moments in a home that reflects their personal style."

Kimberly-Clark, together with Filicia, has created practical design tips that will help transform a living space into a haven for family and friends. As part of its mission, Kimberly-Clark through its trusted brands such as Kleenex, Cottonelle and Huggies, offers solutions for every room of your home to help improve the daily health, hygiene and well-being of families.

Here are some of Thom's favorite design tips:

-- Make Your Home Inviting: Put comfort first by selecting furnishings for their usability. Choose beautiful, comfortable dining chairs rather than delicate antiques, and opt for a nap-worthy sofa with plenty of pillows.

-- Find Inspiration in Your Personal Belongings: When selecting a room's color scheme, take cues from your own wardrobe and favorite personal objects.

-- Design on a Dime: Forget high-end art galleries. A great way to stay on budget is to enlarge your favorite photo on a canvas or frame your children's artwork to add some playful elements to a room.

-- Brighten Up the Atmosphere: Well-placed pools of light create islands of warmth. Place votives in darkened corners or put a reading lamp with a soft light next to a super cushy sofa to help set the mood.

"It's my personal design belief that homes should be an extension of your family's style and personality," said Filicia. "So I am delighted to partner with Kimberly-Clark to makeover 'The View's' backstage area and to provide the tips and inspiration to help create the ideal living space for today's families."
