The Green Living Guy

BURLINGTON, MA – Good things really do happen to good people. Scotties Facial Tissue announces that the Grand Prize winner for the “Scotties Family Field Trip Sweepstakes” is Faith M. Waters of Darby Township, PA. Faith was picked from over 290,000 entries and has won a trip for herself and 4 family members to the destination of her choice – The Grand Canyon.

Faith has lived in Darby Township, for forty-three years. She is an Ordained Elder in the African Methodist Episcopal Church, and professional Christian writer. Since she was picked from over 290,000 entries she believes it was no coincidence, but as her namesake states – a gift based on her strong faith.

“God has worked a miracle because he knew I was going to bless others with my prize,” Faith explains.

In February 2011 Faith’s sister Irene died from colon cancer at 47, leaving behind six children ranging in age from 12 to 26 and their father, a state trooper in NJ.

“[My sister] lived for her family,” said Faith. “They took vacations all the time; even in the weeks before she died she was thinking about where she was going to take the kids on vacation.”

Faith will be accompanied by her mother, aunt, and her two eldest nieces to the location of her choice – The Grand Canyon, a place she has wanted to visit her whole life.

Why I care is because Scotties has a long standing history of tree planting with its parent company, J.D Irving Limited. Consumers will find Scotties Tree Planting Promise on every box. Scotties pledges to plant 3 trees for every 1 used to make its Softest Ever facial tissue, and it’s part of what makes Scotties Like No Other.
