On Friday, March 29, 2013,Â IKEA will be giving away free IKEAÂ FAMILY umbrellas* at locations outside ofÂ IKEAÂ US stores** to kick off the rainy season and help people prepare for April showers, (and hopefully May flowers). Â The giveaway is part of the nationalÂ IKEAÂ Random Acts of Life Improvement, aimed to surprise and delight the public with tokens of appreciation to improve everyday moments in their lives.
This is the 2ndÂ Random Act of Life Improvement as part of this yearâ€™sÂ IKEAÂ Life Improvement ProjectÂ (www.thelifeimprovementproject.com), a program designed to offer consumers ideas and inspiration to help them make a positive impact on their homes and the lives within.Â Past giveaways have included tree seedlings,Â IKEAÂ coffee,Â IKEAÂ Blue Bags, andÂ IKEAÂ soft toys.
The public can follow their localÂ IKEAÂ store on Twitter for details on giveaway locations**:
*FREE Umbrellas will be available while supplies last.
**Â Giveaways will occur in select local high-traffic areas, not inÂ IKEAÂ stores. TheÂ IKEAÂ Portland store is not participating.Â The public can follow their localÂ IKEAÂ store on Twitter for details. Â In the case of inclement weather, consumers should also check local storesâ€™ Twitter handle for updates.Â
