Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to attend the National Volunteer Week kickoff in DC with special guest, Gabrielle Union! This amazing and very motivating event was hosted by the Point of Light Institute and was a program not only honoring and celebrating active volunteers, some of those being the dreamy Reed Doughty and Lorenzo Alexander of the Redskins, but it also kicked off Bounty’s “Make a Clean Difference” Program, presented by the beautiful and socially active, Gabrielle Union.
I got to catch up with some of the foundations, winners, and volunteers on the red carpet, a very humbling experience! Some of those foundations included Newman’s Own, Paul Newman’s foundation, which has raised over $28 million in the past year from the profits of their product (Newman’s Salad Dressing). Go figure!
