I don’t know about you but I have been watching the Olympics. I love watching the ice skating. That is my favorite event in the Winter Olympics. Which is one of the reasons I’m writing this post. I don’t usually write about sports but I wanted to make my readers aware of what Citi and nine US Olympic athletes are doing. Each Team Citi athlete has teamed up with a U.S. Olympic, Paralympic or Community program in need.
Citi donated $500,000 to these programs. Now they need your help placing that money. You help decide where it goes with just a click. I’m helping to spread the word about this amazing program and the chance to give back during this exciting season!
I myself have already gone to the site and watched all the videos and I learned a lot about our athletes. The obstacles they have over come to get to where they are is just amazing! I’ve watched all of their video’s multiple times trying to decided who to do a blog post about. And it’s a hard decision so I decided to give myself a couple more days to decide. But for now I will introduce you to these nice amazing athletes and the programs they are representing.
Julie Chu – The USA Hockey Foundation
Picabo Street – The Team USA Stay on the Slopes Initiative
