The Avengers movie just came out, and in it we saw a band of superheroes working together to save Earth from an alien invasion. There was action, adventure, and lots of excitement as we watched the heroes do their hero thing. While we can all appreciate the work that superheroes can do when the planet is faced with imminent doom, perhaps just as, if not more important, is the great works that the every day heroes do. You know, on the days when aliens aren’t invading the planet.
There are every day heroes all around us, who are doing both ordinary and extraordinary works, positively impacting and supporting those around them – these heroes are often called, “Mom.” In honor ofthe moms who are “Every Day Heroes,” Dollar General is teaming up with Procter & Gamble® (P&G), has kicked off a month-long campaign called “Every Day Heroes,” thanking moms in communities where Dollar General customers live.
Dollar General’s official “Every Day Hero” is Mary Gail Emery, a Georgia mom of two who does it all. As a single mom, she coaches sports team, provides rides to other children to enable them to participate in sports programs, and volunteers in her community, all while holding down both a full-time job and doing part-time work.
A hero doesn’t have to do “great” things to be a hero. An every day hero can simply be the person who gives you a kind and positive word each day, someone who lifts you up or supports you when you need it. If you would like to celebrate and thank your mom as an “Every Day Hero,” you can visit the Dollar General website at www.dollargeneral.com/everydayheroes and upload a video describing why your mom, or a mom that you know, is an “Every Day Hero.”
