NEW YORK CITY - Join Target and U.S. gymnast and 2012 two-time Gold Medal Olympic All-Around champion, Gabby Douglas as they raise awareness about the importance of education and show parents how they can use Facebook to vote for a school of their choice to receive up to $10,000 to ensure that students and teachers have the resources they need to start the year off right.
As part of its "Give With Target" initiative this fall, Target is donating $5 million to schools. Target invites guests to visit its Facebook page to vote for a school of their choice.
Once a school receives 25 votes, through Target's Facebook application on Facebook.com/Target, the company will donate $1 per vote, with a maximum donation of $10,000 per school. The campaign runs through Sept. 21, or until the full $5 million has been allocated.
At the end of the campaign, the school that reaches 10,000 votes first or receives the highest number of votes also will receive a special celebration, which will include appearances by members of the Give With Target "Class of 2013," a live musical performance and more. The campaign will provide students with the resources they need to succeed academically.
The celebration will feature Gabby Douglas along with other celebrity partners, including La La Anthony, Luke Bryan, Sophia Bush, and Donald Driver who will be rallying votes. Give With Target is part of the company's commitment to give $1 billion for education by the end of 2015.
