"As a Latina mother, this partnership is close to my heart as our families and children are our biggest sense of pride; we hope to rally the community and bring the holiday spirit to life for those in need."
CINCINNATI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As part of their continued partnership, P&G and its Orgullosa program
are working with the League of United Latin America Citizens (LULAC) to
spread some holiday cheer by donating toys to Latino kids in need. In
the spirit of giving, everyone can get involved and help spread holiday
cheer, as Orgullosa will donate $1 for every new “Like”on
page* during the month of December for toys LULAC will provide to
deserving Latino children.
The Orgullosa program is designed to empower Latinas to seize their
limitless potential and provides them the opportunity to come together
to connect, inspire and support each other as they celebrate everything
that makes them proud.
“P&G and Orgullosa share LULAC’s passion to empower and improve the
lives of Latino families across the country,” shared Valentina Sanchez,
Orgullosa brand manager. “As a Latina mother, this partnership is close
to my heart as our families and children are our biggest sense of pride;
we hope to rally the community and bring the holiday spirit to life for
those in need.”
Another way to give back is by donating toys to local LULAC councils
that will be supporting the cause across the country. For information on
participating LULAC councils please go to www.lulac.org/orgullosa.
“We are excited to be partnering with P&G for so many years. This
partnership has impacted the lives of many Latinos in the United States,
and with this special donation during the Holidays we hope to bring some
happiness and relief to Latino families in need,” said Margaret Moran,
LULAC National President.
Join Orgullosa and LULAC in making some holiday wishes come true and
encourage your friends and loved ones to do the same.
*From December 1 to December 31, 2012 for up to a total of $30,000 to
be used for toys.
