So I posted a bit on Mommy Niri about John Legend – you have to see the wonderful video there with him singing Let It Shine.
So quick story since I think the videos capture it better:
P&G Give Education and Communities in School have John Legend as an ambassador to help keep kids in school. I have never felt so honored in my life to meet someone who is a celebrity so committed to what he is doing. He understands it, lived it and is passionate about it.
About Communities In School
We are a nationwide network of passionate professionals working in public schools to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Here is him on video in response to a question I asked how does one keep the motivation going since I personally know when you grow up in a disadvantaged community it is very difficult to swim against the tide.
This is a video about dealing with Special Needs and how it is dealt with in Communities In School. Knowing that with my daughter having Autism this is a passionate topic for me.
What can you do?? I am repeating a wonderful action task from what I said over at MommyNiri.com
On Sunday, July 31, a GIVE Education brandSAVER will be included in newspapers across the country!
Among the regular fabulous coupons there will be special coupons for P&G products here. For every brandSAVER coupon redeemed, P&G will donate 2¢ to CIS to help deliver human, financial and community resources to students and their families. The P&G uncapped donation will be based on the number of coupons redeemed beginning July 31.If you want to know the newspapers carrying the GIVE Education brandSAVER, they can be found at www.pgeverydaysolutions.com.I am not a huge newspaper buying girl (blame my online world) but this Sunday the impact of this is too great to ignore.
