P&G Thanks Moms and Supports Brenda Villa at the 2012 Olympic Games {P&G/Costco Prize Pack Giveaway}


Along with billions of people around the world, I have been 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 been gearing up for the games and, along with celebrating the tremendous skill and hard work of the athletes, P&G is also focusing on the important role that moms play in helping their children reach their full potential.

I love that, as the Proud Sponsor of Moms for the London 2012 Olympic Games, P&G wants to be sure that we say "Thank you, Mom" to moms around the world!

Thank you, Mom

While the moms (and dads) of all of the Olympic athletes deserve recognition, one star that Procter & Gamble is particularly proud of is three-time Olympian and World Champion Water Polo Player, Brenda Villa. As Brenda and her mom, Rosario, have headed off to London, it is easy to see that the choices that Rosario made for her daughter have had a major impact in where she is today.

After enrolling her daughter in swim lessons more than two decades ago so that she would learn to be safe in the waters of Southern California, Rosario has never looked back. As Brenda began to excel at water polo, her mom, a Mexican immigrant, always encouraged her to pursue her goals and dreams in a completely unfamiliar sport.

Brenda Villa

When raising children, especially athletes, Rosario gives this advice to moms: "Encourage them, support them and allow them to follow their dreams. Make sure you give them the confidence to follow their own values and beliefs and stay true to themselves."

Having received such great support, Brenda appreciates all that her mom has done for her: "My mom is my number one fan. She got me started when I was eight years old and was there for me every step of the way. She was always cheering me on and that I'll always be grateful for."

What a wonderful mother and daughter! In an effort to help inspire all of us by Brenda's journey to London, P&G is mirroring the performance and value of her years of hard work with a special prize pack of products to help make life easier...

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

Prize Pack contains:  Olay Regenerist Advanced Anti-Aging Micro-Sculpting Cream, Venus Spa Breeze 2 in 1 Razor Plus Shave Gel Bars (White Tea Scent), Secret Clinical Strength Advanced Solid (Light and Fresh Scent), Gillette Comfort Advance Sensitive Skin Shave Gel, Swiffer Sweeper Dry Sweeping Refills (16 count), Bounty Paper Towel Roll, Fekkai Technician sample packs (Fekkai Technician Color Care Shampoo and Fekkai Technician Color Care 3-Minute Mask)

(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 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.
