Worldwide Olympic partner, Procter & Gamble, has announced plans to raise $25 million to help say ‘Thank You Mom’ by establishing and sustaining youth sport programmes around the world;
P&G global brand building officer, Marc Pritchard explained: “At the start of our ‘Thank You Mom’ program, we asked moms everywhere, what would be a great way for us to help you and they said – 'Help support youth sports because sport helps moms too.' It helps moms raise healthy, happy kids. This is why we are committing to support not just the moms of Olympians – but every mom who does whatever it takes to make her child’s life the best it can be.” FULL STORY
