- The First 500 Parents and Teachers Taking Bounty's Clean Schools Pledge Will Receive Free Cleaning Supplies for America's Classrooms now through March 4th -
(BLACK PR WIRE) – CINCINNATI, February 22, 2011 – At New York City’s PS 208 Alaine L. Locke in Harlem business mogul and mother of three Kimora Lee Simmons announced the launch of the Make a Clean Difference Pledge on Friday, February 18, 2011. Beginning on Valentine’s Day, the Procter & Gamble Company’s (NYSE: PG) Bounty® brand began the “We Love Our School” campaign activating parents and volunteers at 1,000 schools across the country to join in a classroom clean up and address the need for more in-room cleaning supplies for teachers. With the help of Simmons and dozens of local volunteers at the Alaine L. Locke School, Bounty opened up its “We Love Our School” clean-up campaign nationwide.
“I was thrilled to be able to join Bounty in bringing a little bit of ‘fabulosity’ to the Alaine L. Locke School in Harlem as part of ‘We Love Our School’ Week,” said model, mogul and mom Kimora Lee Simmons. “As a mother of three, and with a passion for fashion and design, I’m always encouraging my children’s creativity through hands-on learning. It’s a great opportunity to be able to help improve the learning environment for these students, and I hope that parents and teachers will get involved to better the classrooms in their own communities.”
The Make a Clean Difference Pledge hosted at Bounty’s Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/Bounty) allows parents and teachers to submit their schools to support clean, creative learning environments for children. Schools that make the pledge between February 18 and March 4 will automatically be entered in Bounty’s “We Love Our School” sweepstakes for a chance to win a celebrity-designed $50,000 school makeover. The first 500 schools to take the pledge will also receive a Bounty Clean Kit with enough Bounty and Mr. Clean product to clean all of their classrooms, along with a cleaning checklist.
