Who do you consider to be your hero? I consider my Mom to be one of my heroes, although I don’t tell her how I feel nearly often enough. She is honest and fair, she’ll tell you when you’re mistaken just as quickly as she’ll praise you and tell you when you’re right. She doesn’t sugar coat things, and you always know where you stand. She is a great believer in doing what’s right. She sacrificed a lot when I was a child. She would do anything within her capabilities to support her children and grandchildren, whether right or wrong she loves us.
Dollar General has an Everyday Heroes program that honors mothers. Throughout the month of May, in recognition of moms who do extraordinary things every day for their families and communities, Dollar General is teaming up with Procter & Gamble to honor moms – the true Every Day Heroes who have made sacrifices for their families and their communities. To celebrate moms, Dollar General is inviting customers to upload videos describing why their moms are “Every Day Heroes.” Videos can be submitted and viewed at www.dollargeneral.com/everydayheroes. If you think of your Mom as your hero, there’s still time to submit a video, you can do so until May 31.
Dollar General is currently offering an Olympic Training Center contest. There are also instant win prizes including five Panasonic flat screen TV’s and 500 $10 Visa Gift Cards. When you purchase participating products you receive a code to enter. There is no purchase necessary, simply click on “Don’t have a code” and follow the instructions if you don’t have one. The Grand Prize is a trip for four to the US Olympic Training Center. You can enter to win prizes from April 23 to May 31. Go to www.dollargeneral.com/everydayheroes to enter.
ONE winner will receive a Dollar General prize package containing Tide Pods, Febreze Auto Air Freshener, Always Radiant, Tampax Radiant, Secret Coco Butter Clear Gel, Old Spice Champion Deodorant, and a Dollar General chip clip.
