Improve Your Community with State Farm Neighborhood Assist®

This is part of a sponsored collaboration with Latina Mom Bloggers and State Farm. However, all opinions expressed are my own.

Last week, I shared with you una gran oportunidad to help you improve your community by entering your idea or favorite cause to win a grant of $25,000 from the State Farm Neighborhood Assist® program. 

Last Monday, the submission process went live and parents or kids like you can now submit your idea using their free State Farm Neighborhood Assist Facebook app. No se olvide that even though the deadline is March 23rd, the submission period closes once they've reached 4,000 submissions. This typically happens early on, so don't wait! Submit your great idea/cause today!

The app and submission process is super fast and easy, too. All you have to do is answer a few questions and enter your information.

Across the country, Latinos often live in poor areas with limited resources. Access to books, clean playgrounds, and preventive medical programs may be difficult or not available at all. I firmly believe that it is up to us to make our comunidad a better place. Everyone can have a positive impact with a great idea to help improve the lives of themselves, their families, and even their neighborhoods. We just need to put those ideas into action and move forward. But I think that too often lack of funding and support discourages us. That's why I'm supporting the State Farm Neighborhood Assist® program and encouraging you all to participate.

I turn down - or ignore - a lot of pitches and campaigns that are just fluff or don't really help us (your family included) to improve our children's education. I want to be sure that I share resources and opportunities that benefit us all, so I hope you'll take a moment to think about this program and feel empowered to make a change in your own community.

¡Adelante!
