Actress and NYC mom Julianne Moore spent her time wisely this week. She chipped in to lend her star power to "We Love Our School" in NYC. The events kicked off on Valentine's Day, when Bounty paper towels invited Julianne Moore to help out at NYC's PS 63. And there's a way to get your school involved for a needed face lift.
In partnership with PTO Today, an organization focused on filling un-met school needs through parent-teaching partnerships, Bounty made a pledge to provide clean, creative learning environments for children nationwide knowing that 94% of teachers believe students learn better in a clean classroom.
Pretty gross to think classrooms are dirtier while we are in the midst of flu season. Here's the fact: About half of teachers in a recent poll admit their classroom is cleaned less frequently or thoroughly now than at the beginning of the year.
Bounty and PTO Today will mobilize parent and community volunteers to clean up 1,000 schools and 2,500 classrooms nationwide. On Friday, 2/18, another mother of two and entrepreneur, Kimora Lee Simmons is set to announce how more schools across the country will be able to get involved in Bounty's clean school initiative.
