Have you all heard about GIVE Education yet? If not, you should! It's P&G (Procter and Gamble's) new campaign to increase awareness of the student dropout crisis in the U.S. and raise funds to help keep millions of students in school.
Every nine seconds of each school day, a young person drops out of high school in the U.S. P&G’s GIVE Education campaign will increase awareness of the student dropout crisis in the U.S. and raise funds to help keep millions of students in school. By partnering with Communities In Schools (CIS), one of the nation’s leading dropout prevention organizations, and one that is proven to increase graduation rates and decrease dropout rates, GIVE Education will enable CIS to continue channeling much-needed resources to students who are at greatest risk of dropping out.
Campaign spokesperson John Legend joins the initiative to generate additional awareness of America’s dropout crisis and the GIVE Education campaign. With a long track record of philanthropic work and deep commitment to education, Legend will be featured in the campaign’s national television spot, as well as in the dedicated GIVE Education brandSAVER coupon booklet and Facebook page.
Consumers can take simple steps to help “School the Nation” – and help keep kids in school. Here are a few easy ways to get started:
