P&G and John Legend support GIVE Education!

Not only am I big P&G fan but I'm also a super big John Legend fan! One of his songs was our first dance song at our wedding. It just makes me smile to think about it! So when I heard that John Legend was teaming up with P&G to help with a program that supports education you know I jumped all over that! I couldn't wait to share the details with you and how you can help!

 The program is GIVE education and it's really simple to help out! Every nine seconds of each school day, a young person drops out of high school in the U.S. P&G’s new campaign, GIVE Education, will increase awareness of the student dropout crisis in the U.S. and raise funds to help keep millions of students in school. By partnering with Communities In Schools (CIS), one of the nation’s leading dropout prevention organizations, and one that is proven to increase graduation rates and decrease dropout rates, GIVE Education will enable CIS to continue channeling much-needed resources to students who are at greatest risk of dropping out.

Campaign spokesperson John Legend joins the initiative to generate additional awareness of America’s dropout crisis and the GIVE Education campaign. With a long track record of philanthropic work and deep commitment to education, Legend will be featured in the campaign’s national television spot, as well as in the dedicated GIVE Education brandSAVER coupon booklet and Facebook page.

How to help:
  1. Save and Do Good: Look for special P&G brandSAVER coupons in your local newspaper on Sunday, July 31. For each coupon redeemed, P&G will donate two cents to CIS. Find out where to get your P&G brandSAVER on Facebook. The uncapped donation will be based on the number of coupons redeemed beginning July 31 – the more you save, the more you give. Most coupons expire after four weeks.
  2. Watch to Donate: Watch an exclusive video from John Legend on Facebook where for each view, P&G will donate $.25 to CIS, up to $10,000. 
John Legend also shares his views on the program below. (I just love his voice)!
