(WTVM) -

Each year, Aflac's holiday duck helps raise money for children fighting cancer. This year's annual holiday duck is now on sale, and all of the proceeds will go to Pediatric Cancer hospitals in the region.

This year's duck is rocking a green Aflac ski outfit complete with goggles and skis.

The winning design was created by 14-year-old Michelle Nguyen who is fighting a rare genetic blood disorder. She is currently awaiting a bone marrow transplant at the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

This is the 13th year for the Aflac Holiday Duck, which has become a collector's item for many people.

The Aflac Holiday Duck can be purchased at Macy's, or at aflacholidayduck.com.
