Join the P&G Campaign for Special Olympics!
In partnership with Special Olympics International Board Member Maria Shriver and Special Olympics, P&G has produced a short video entitled “The Gift My Mother Gave Me.” In this video, Maria recalls the most important gift her mother, Special Olympics founder Eunice Kennedy Shriver, gave her – the gift of possibility.
In addition to being a moving tribute to her remarkable mother, Maria’s video will also help raise funds for Special Olympics. Starting May 3rd, P&G invites you to visit their Thank you, Mom Facebook page at facebook.com/thankyoumom to watch and share this short video. For every share during the month of May, P&G will donate $1 to Special Olympics, up to $50,000. You can also help boost the donation to Special Olympics through Twitter.
Starting May 7, for every retweet of @thankyoumom’s tweet featuring Maria Shriver’s video during the month of May, P&G will donate $1 to Special Olympics, up to $25,000.
