Dollar General Every Day Heroes program (and giveaway)




Since February is Black History Month, the kids have been learning a lot about the leaders of the civil rights movement in the 60's, along with other prominent African-American role models. All month we've been regaled with tidbits about the lives and accomplishments of Martin Luther King, Jr, George Washington Carver and all his inventions, not to mention Colin Powell and Barack Obama.

But I think the person who made the biggest impression on him is Rosa Parks. He just couldn't believe that one ordinary person could make such a huge difference. "But she was just an ordinary woman, mama! Not a scientist or a lawyer or a president". I told him that is exactly what makes Rosa Parks so great -- she showed everyone what a difference she could make and humbled everyone with her courage.

That's the idea behind Dollar General's Every Day Heroes program -- that you don't need to win a Nobel Prize to be considered a hero; there are heroes who demonstrate courage and conviction and passion all around us. They launched this program during Black History month to honor and celebrate the heroes among us who make a difference -- from firefighters and veterans to teachers and caregivers. Their first Every Day Hero, Sterling Wilder, started the Jubilee Family Development Center in Lynchburg, Va, to provide local kids and families with a center for after-school tutoring, cultural activities, access to health screening and other youth and family-development services -- a haven away from drugs and violence. What a great idea! I can't wait to read about more Every Day Heroes!

I like dark blue colors like 'Ink' and deep purples. They're a little bit different, but still very pretty, and they make my hands look great with my silver jewelry! :)
