Jan 21 2011Frosty The Snowman Travels 5,314 Miles In Super-Insulated Box To Treat Desert-Dwelling Children in Bahrain To First Feel Of Snow
But you know Frosty's claustrophobic!
Remember the first time you touched snow? I don't. I do remember the first time I packed a snowball with a dog turd in it though, so that's something. Something that hit my little sister in the back of the head and got me grounded!
Panasonic held a contest on where it looked for ideas that spawned a mission to let some kids in Bahrain see snow for the first time. Panasonic used some of its cool high-tech vacuum insulation, packed a snowman away inside a box, and put it on a plane to start its 5,314-mile journey to the desert and the waiting kids.
As Frosty started to melt, the kids got to have snowball fights and build their own mini snowmen too.
Pretty cool, right? There's several more pictures of Frosty and the kids after the jump, which, while heartwarming (and snowmelting!), are nowhere near as interesting as the fact that not one but TWO of the Bahraini children are wearing Spongebob Squarepants shirts. SHIIIIIIIIT -- YA'LL GET DOWN WITH KRABBY PATTIES TOO?!
Hit the jump for the rest.

Thanks to April, who has the power to bring May flowers every time she bathes. Impressive!
