Procter & Gamble invites you to celebrate and send off three-time Olympian and World Champion Water Polo Player Brenda Villa, as she and her mom, Rosario, head off to the London 2012 Olympic Games. While we know you and your readers probably couldn’t attend the in-person celebration at a Los Angeles Costco Wholesale warehouse, we know your “virtual” good wishes for Team USA are equally impactful.
P&G hosted the send off to remind shoppers of the important role that moms play in helping their children reach their full potential – something we know you and your readers can appreciate! As the Proud Sponsor of Moms for the London 2012 Olympic Games, P&G is celebrating moms around the world and saying “Thank you, Mom“.
As Brenda began to excel at water polo, her mom, a Mexican immigrant, encouraged her to pursue her goals and dreams in a completely unfamiliar sport.
When raising children, especially athletes, Rosario gives this advice to moms “Encourage them, support them and allow them to follow their dreams. Make sure you give them the confidence to follow their own values and beliefs and stay true to themselves.”
