Discovery Channel's Josh Bernstein Offers Fun and Wallet-Friendly Tips for Enjoying the Great Outdoors
FORT WASHINGTON, Pa., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The makers of BENADRYL(R) and the National Park Foundation (NPF) today announced a partnership designed to encourage everyone, including people with allergies, to pledge to spend more time enjoying outdoor moments with friends and family.
To kick off the campaign, Discovery Channel's international explorer and wilderness survival expert, Josh Bernstein, set up camp at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, NY, on April 17, 2009, reminding people that spring is the perfect time to start enjoying the outdoors, and camping is a great way to do just that. Taking a camping trip can also be a great option for a fun family getaway that doesn't break the bank - camping out at a National Park can cost as little as $10 a night.
Josh suggests the following tips for enjoying the outdoors and helping to keep your family camping trip fun and incident-free.
"We are proud to partner with the National Park Foundation to protect our parks and encourage everyone to visit these very special places," says Jorge Leon, BENADRYL(R) Product Director. "We understand that for people with allergies, enjoying time in one of America's National Parks, or any outdoor destination, may take just a little more planning, but the outdoor moments you enjoy with friends and family make it worth it."
The makers of BENADRYL(R) and the National Park Foundation are working together to protect moments outdoors - moments you wouldn't want to miss due to allergies. That's why the makers of BENADRYL(R) are donating $200,000 to the NPF. In addition, until June 15th, a $1 donation will be made each time someone visits www.BenadrylMoments.com and enters a unique promotion code found on specially marked packages of BENADRYL(R) (minimum donation $50,000/maximum donation $100,000).(1) Consumers are also encouraged to visit www.BenadrylMoments.com where they can pledge to enjoy a moment outdoors.
Vin Cipolla, Vice Chair, National Park Foundation says, "Americans are blessed with some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world right in their backyards. The support from the makers of BENADRYL(R) and BENADRYL(R) users across the country will help the National Park Foundation care for our parks and ensure that present and future generations can continue to enjoy them."

More than 36 million Americans suffer from indoor and outdoor allergic rhinitis, also known as upper respiratory allergies. Allergies are caused when a person's immune system overreacts to normally harmless substances. These substances are often referred to as triggers. Depending on their sensitivities, people can encounter indoor and outdoor allergy triggers anytime throughout the year that can lead to allergy symptoms.
BENADRYL(R) is an antihistamine that helps block the action of histamine in the body. BENADRYL(R) helps provide relief of upper respiratory allergy symptoms including sneezing, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes and itching of the nose or throat.
