TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® Coloring Page Contest

Two Men and a Truck is holding a contest for a fresh coloring page design for Movers for Moms®.  Movers for Moms is our national giving program aimed to assist moms in need. All our franchise locations collect donations to deliver to women’s and family shelters every spring.

In 2019 alone, we collected more than 383,000 items in 44 states.

  • The design would be outlines in black and white for kids to color in at any of our Movers for Moms events and to put in the kits sent to all our franchises to give away.
  • Theme is family/moms. The design should stick in a childlike/cartoon type style (See attached pages for reference of our current coloring book).
  • Files accepted: Print Ready PDFs or Packaged Illustrator or InDesign files

Winner will have to sign a legal waiver granting us unlimited usage rights to the design and full intellectual property rights.
