August 2nd marks National Coloring Book Day! In recent years, a coloring-for-adults craze has swept the country... mostly in the form of ornate geometric patterns and colored pencils. Whether you’re an adult "channeling zen" by busting out your favorite coloring utensil or you are eternally grateful for the ten minutes of "parenting peace" that can be attained when your little ones are busy creating works of art, FilterEasy wants to help you color today!
Meet Effie, the FilterEasy mascot. We named her Effie, because it sounds like "F-E" which so happen to be the initials of FilterEasy. We chose an elephant because elephants never forget... just like we will never let you forget when it’s time to change your air filters. So many customers have colored in the Effie from the front of our boxes in the past, we thought we would commemorate National Coloring Book Day with an easy contest. Whether you would like to add some color to Effie or have your children do so, we would love to see your work!
In order to enter our National Coloring Book Day contest, all you need to do is print the Effie coloring page, color it in yourself or have your children flex their artistic skill, snap a photo of the colored Effie, and share it to our Facebook page.
This contest is open to everyone! Even if you’re not a customer of FilterEasy (which, if you’re not a member, you can get your first shipment free if you sign up on National Coloring Book Day), you can still enter the FilterEasy National Coloring Book Day contest. The winner will receive one free YEAR of FilterEasy (that’s one shipment per quarter for as many filters as your home needs). Once you submit your colored Effie to the FilterEasy Facebook page, share your submission to your friends. Whichever piece of "Effie art" gets the most likes/comments/reactions will be declared the winner.
So print out our Effie, and relax... whether that relaxation comes from coloring in Effie or getting a few minutes of peace while your child colors in Effie, and don’t forget to share your work! We can’t wait to see you "bring Effie to life."
