P&G Partners With Lolo Jones for the 2012 Olympic Games {Prize Pack Giveaway!}

It may be a few months away, but I am already eagerly awaiting the start of the London 2012 Olympic Games. Everything from the athletes' talent and determination to seeing the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat in sport after sport is something that draws me in to the Summer Games every four years.

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

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.

Lolo attributes her success to the support of her mom and community, as well as hard work and determination. "Growing up we didn’t have a lot of money so my mom really had to stretch her budget," Jones said. "My family really benefited from the great values we received on P&G products from Family Dollar."

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...

One lucky person will win a Family Dollar P&G Prize Pack*!

 *Prize Pack contains Tide Pods, Febreze Auto Air Freshener, Downy Unstoppables (full size), Crest 3D White Toothpaste, and Clairol Lash Blash Mascara – all in a reusable Family Dollar shopping bag. 

(Enter with the Rafflecopter form below. If you have any questions or problems entering, there is a video tutorial found here that can help.)

A big thank you to Procter & Gamble for providing a Family Dollar prize pack for me as well as for one lucky giveaway winner. The opinions shared are my own and honest and if you really need to see more, click here to see how I roll.

How can you not love the olympics? It only comes every 4 years and for a few days we get caught up in watching the best in the world at sports you may have never seen before. Very family friendly and then it's over for 4 years.
Love the gymnastics, the swimming, track and field events - the breaking of world records.
