GAL APPROVED VIDEO: John Legend for Staying In SchoolBy Delaina Dixon | July 28, 2011 | Gal Approved
We love a celebrity who’s dedicated to doing good!
That’s why the DivaGals were so happy to join Grammy award-winning artist John Legend at a private event with Procter & Gamble and Communities in Schools (CIS) as they team up to fight the dropout crisis in our nation, and keep over a million kids in school. As a spokesperson for the cause, John talked about the importance of kids staying in school, and performed “Shine” with the Sports and Arts in Schools Foundation choir from M.S. 390 in University Heights, Bronx, N.Y.
On Sunday, July 31, you can help support CIS’ mission with GIVE Education brandSAVER coupons featuring discounts on your fave P&G products. The coupons will be distributed, along with a note from John Legend, in newspapers across the country. For each GIVE Education brandSAVER coupon redeemed, P&G will donate two cents to CIS – allowing consumers to give back while saving money. Got to love that!
Want to know more? Check out our exclusive interview with John about the cause, his own inspiration to stay in school and how he keeps his “A” game while on tour with Sade!
