Why is this so important? Did you know that 60% of US athletes receive less than $12 K a year from the US Team to fund their training? Many athletes are forced to work at retail or other flexible jobs and scramble to make even basic financial obligations. Unlike other countries that fully fund their athletes, US athletes make huge personal financial sacrifices in order to chase their dreams. The most impactful thing we can do is supply direct financial support.
You have an opportunity to help Jamberry do something really special for these athletes. Women helping women achieve their dreams — what can be more beautiful than that?!
Today is the day you can help 15 women Olympians get the financial support they need to achieve their dreams of going for gold at the 2016 Summer Games in Rio through proceeds raised from the sales of Go for Gold wraps! (#GoforGold) Women helping women achieve their dreams — what can be more beautiful than that?!
The fine print: $3.50 per Go For Gold Collection wrap sold will be donated to help these wonderful ladies! This collection is NOT eligible for B3G1 or hostess rewards.
