This year, I'm not the only one. Procter & Gamble has already begun gearing up for the games and has released the most amazing short film that honors everything that all moms do to help their children succeed by showcasing the amazing moms behind the Olympic athletes. If you haven't seen this yet (or even if you have) be prepared with tissues nearby!
However, P&G is doing much more than making moms like me cry with their videos — they have partnered with Lolo Jones, world champion hurdler and U.S. Olympic hopeful, who recently announced that Procter & Gamble is donating $25,000 on behalf of Family Dollar to the P&G Team USA Youth Sports Fund.
The fund will help moms raise happy, healthy kids by providing broader access to youth sports as part of P&G’s 'Thank you, Mom' campaign. This is part of the company's global effort to raise more than $5 million for youth sports. I love a company that truly stands up to make a difference for the next generation!
Lolo Jones is the perfect partner for P&G, as she is an inspiration in terms representing that any child can grow up to follow their dreams. Lolo attended eight schools in eight years while her single mother often held down two jobs to support her family of six. In third grade, the Jones family settled in the basement of a Des Moines-area church when they had nowhere else to go.
With all of the stellar deals on P&G products at Family Dollar, it is no surprise that this was one stop that helped Lolo along in her incredible journey in running for the gold. Be sure to visit and cheer on Lolo this summer at her new website, FollowLoloRun.com, where you'll find information about her, her mom, special offers and more.
And, thanks to the generosity of Procter & Gamble, one person will be able to enjoy many of their great products as well, because...
