Kimberly-Clark believes that communication between the Board,
stockholders and other interested parties is an important part of
the Corporation's corporate governance process. To this end, the
Corporation has established the following procedures by which
interested parties may communicate with the Board.
Stockholders and other interested parties may send written
communications to the Board in care of the Lead Director:
P.O. Box 619100

for communications addressed to the Board to be received by the
Corporation's Stockholder Services Department and reviewed first by
the Corporate Secretary's office. The Lead Director has instructed
the Corporate Secretary to:
