The paper towel brand donates funds to support the parents of
athletes bound for gold
Bounty paper towels announced today another milestone in their support
of Team USA Hockey Moms in pursuit of the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter
Games with a donation of $10,000 to the USAH Sochi Family Fund at the
USA vs. Canada Exhibition Game. The donation is part of Bounty's ongoing
mission of celebrating moms who are uninhibited by messes and encourage
their children to pursue their dreams. Donations to the USAH Sochi
Family Fund help ease the financial burden associated with travel on
families of Olympic hopefuls.

On top of the early mornings, late nights and slap-shot-related-messes,
being able to watch your child participate in The Winter Olympics is an
expensive feat. Bounty is giving back to the Team USA Hockey and
Paralympic moms across the country, who have supported their children's
dreams, sacrificed mornings for early practices and homes to big messes.
"The Team USA Hockey Moms in many ways act as the backbone of the USA
Hockey Teams," said Victoria Schooler, Communications Manager for Bounty
paper towels. "We want to honor those mothers who have cheered their
children on from the first time they hit the ice all the way up to the
first time they set foot in an Olympic venue."
Bounty's sponsorship is a part of a larger Procter & Gamble (P&G)
program during the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games, titled "Thank You
Mom," which not only highlights the everyday journey athletes take to
get to the Olympic Winter Games, but celebrates the moms who help get
them there. As part of the 2014 Thank You Mom campaign, P&G offered
their "Thanks" to all 357 moms of US Olympians & Paralympians with a
gift of a $1,000 VISA gift card to help them on their journey to Sochi.
Moms across the country can join in the hockey and sports minded
conversation by visiting Facebook.com/Bounty or @Bounty on Twitter.com
