Show your support by joining a wave!

Support the U.S. Olympic Team and Make Waves with P&G Beauty

With the London 2012 Olympic Games just a couple of weeks away, the inspiring female athletes on the U.S. Olympic Team are looking to make history in London this year. We can show our support by coming together and making a digital “wave”—just like you’d see at a sporting event—but now everyone can see it and participate without being at the Olympic Games. These women train hard, but they need both physical and emotional strength to be at the top of their game!

Having an excellent support system is such a great way to ensure success–I know that I wouldn’t have been able to be where I am today without the love and support of my friends and family, as well as the encouragement of the amazing readers that are part of our community. When people are cheering you on, encouraging you to pursue your dreams, and are with you every step of the way, you get more motivated, driven, and just have that extra oomph to take you to the home stretch. Every day, try encouraging yourself and others around you, because there are so many things worth celebrating in each of us and we need to come together to support each other so we can all reach our goals!


It’s me! :)

P&G Beauty has developed a new Facebook application called Make Waves, which brings us together so we can support our phenomenal female athletes of the U.S. Olympics Team. You can join celebrities Giuliana Rancic and Whitney Port by participating in a digital “wave” to keep the momentum going through the Olympic Games in London. P&G Beauty is asking: “What lifts your game?For me, it’s the love and support of my friends and family! You can join me in the Made in the Shade Wave!

P&G Beauty brands Always, Clairol, COVERGIRL, Head & Shoulders, Herbal Essences, Olay, Pantene, Secret, Tampax and Venus are proud of their commitment to help the U.S. Olympic Team and women everywhere achieve their personal best every day. Brands also have their own themed “waves” that you can join!

As part of P&G’s sponsorship of the 2012 Olympic Games, P&G Beauty brands such as COVERGIRL, Olay, Pantene and Secret have also pledged to donate $400,000 to the new P&G|Team USA Youth Sports Fund, enriching the health and wellness of young people by supporting youth sports programs across the country.
