No one ever said that raising kids was easy. Raising athletes certainly has to be challenging. Hard work, long practice hours, competing, obstacles and challenges can drive us to strive to become better at what we do and to be the best. P&G has already begun gearing up for the London 2012 Olympic Games I watched this really amazing short film from P&G about Moms and their amazing Olympic competing children. Brought tears to my eyes. I’ve felt that Mother’s Pride several times in my life and even recently when I watch my son Fielding and Hitting Baseballs on Wrigley Field. This short Film from P&G will certainly touch your heart: Warning you’ll need tissue.
P&G is partnering with Lolo Jones, world champion hurdler and U.S. Olympic hopeful, who recently announced that Procter & Gamble (P&G) is donating $25,000 on behalf of Family Dollar to the P&G Team USA Youth Sports Fund.
Jones 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. 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.”

I love shopping at Family dollar for every day products. There are two within walking distance from my home and they have great prices on P&G products we use every day.
disclosure: Procter & Gamble provided the prize for my consideration, as well as the prize provided as part of this contest. Information supplied by company and thoughts are 100% my own as always.
