Giveaway: Celebrate Black History Month with Dollar General's Every Day Heroes Program



It has been a whole year since I first blogged about Dollar General's Every Day Heroes, and I'm so happy to see that this program is still going strong.  Everyday heroes make such a big difference in our communities, yet their acts of kindness and courage usually go unsung -- which makes programs like Dollar General's Every Day Heroes all the more important!

This month, in celebration of diversity and coinciding with Black History Month, Dollar General has teamed up once again with Procter & Gamble to honor Every Day Heroes who make sacrifices for their families and make a difference in their communities.   Dollar General has chosen Sabrina Williams as its Every Day Hero for February 2013.

Here's a bit more about Sabrina:
Sabrina is a driving force in the community of North Lawndale, on the west side of Chicago. In addition to raising her own four children in the neighbor she grew up in, she also became a valued community leader and volunteer. 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.

Sabrina will be featured in a national television program airing on TNT called "Dramatic Differences".  You can find out more about Sabrina and about Dollar General's commitment to literacy at Dollar General's website.  Congratulations Sabrina, and thank you for all that you do to make a difference!

These are generally short term loans that do produce you meet your fiscal difficulties inside a desired particular time period.

Thinking of time limitations these loans are specifically made above an obligation 100 % free platform. As such, these are kept fully free from credential checksums. Difficulties such as defaults, arrears, bankruptcy, CCJs and even IVAs are not deemed right here. Additional, there are also no collaterals associated with these loans. There is minimal paper operate necessary on the part of borrower. There are also no hidden or further documentation or faxing necessary here. Applying for these loans is also pretty handy. Folks basically need filling an over the internet type and when this gets authorized cash is received inside 24 hours time frame. These loans are typically provided below practical terms and conditions. The common standard applicant criteria right here is that they should certainly be a UK resident and of 18 years of age.

Both of my parents and I work within our communities, serving our communities. My mother and I, while we have different jobs, are responsible for creating programs for kids of varying ages, and we usually create these programs to coincide with various holidays or observances throughout the year. As such, she and I both create a Black History Month program each year consisting of different events at the local library and/or schools. I also run a program in schools for 4th-graders that teaches them about how to treat other kids with disabilities. I use a wheelchair myself, so it's a fun program that means a lot to me!
