Dollar General and P&G Honor Every Day Heroes in February- #Giveaway!

I absolutely love P&G and not only their amazing products, but the way they involve themselves in amazing programs, and call out the true heroes in this country. This February is no exception when they focus to honor Sabrina Williams for her effort to support literacy in this country.

In celebration of diversity, and coinciding with Black History Month, Procter & Gamble® has teamed up with Dollar General to honor Every Day Heroes who make sacrifices for their families and are making a difference in their communities.   To celebrate the Every Day Hero in each of us, Dollar General chose Sabrina Williams as its Every Day Hero for February 2013. She will be featured in a national television program airing on TNT called “Dramatic Differences.”

She was the Chair of the Parent Committee at her children’s elementary school and continued to work with a national after-school literacy organization, America SCORES, as a writing coach for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade boys, even after all of her own children went on to high school.
