Here’s a great tip on how you can make a difference right now in just 2 1/2 minutes.
Not too long ago, many women didn’t go to school because they were expected to get married, become housewives, and raise kids. My mom finished elementary school and then she started Academia, a secretarial school. She started working as a secretary at 15. Ten years later she got married and started having kids.
She never lost hope of going back to school again some day. So when I was a little girl she finished secondary school (Jr. High) and 6 years ago she finished high school. Yeah, Mom!
Now she would like to go to College and has her sights on becoming a Child Psychologist. But because she didn’t have the opportunity to finish school when she was younger, she was very firm with us about our educations. She never gave us the option of NOT going to College, and with her support my brothers and I did. I liked school so much I decided to get my masters degree which, by the way, turned out to be two of the best years of my life.
Unfortunately, even in the United States, million of students are missing the educational opportunities and tools they need to help realize their dreams and their full potential; fortunately, there are organizations and brands interested in helping out.
For the third consecutive year the Neutrogena Wave for Change Campaign is helping kids reach their educational goals and you can help, too, in these two very simple ways:
- Every time someone watches the video below (from now until August 31st, 2012), the Neutrogena® Wave for Change® program will donate $1 to GlobalGiving to support educational charities within the United States like the Knowledge is Power Program, Para Los Ninos, and Education Through Music.
- Every time you purchase a participating Neutrogena product, simply visit the Neutrogena Wave for Change website or Neutrogena in Facebook to activate the purchased products with one click and another $1 will be donated .
The goal is $250,000 and 41% has been donated already, so please spread the word!
Oh, and watch the video! And then please remember to share it with your friends.
