Assisting a neighbor: State Farm gives back to local causes

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for State Farm. I received a promotional item to thank me for participating.

Giving back is a common theme in our household. We are blessed with good health, amazing family, and everything we need. My daughter has a playroom full of toys and books, and we regularly take a moment to choose what she no longer loves to donate to others. She has grown up with an understanding that there are many other children in need, and it is our duty to share. She understands that once in a while, saying goodbye to her belongings allows them to go on to another child who will love the toys and give them a new life of more fun and new playtime.

State Farm takes "like a good neighbor" seriously. The State Farm Neighborhood Assist program is back, and it is time to vote, vote, vote for your favorite neighborhood cause. 4,000 causes were submitted to the Neighborhood Assist program, and the State Farm Youth Advisory Board has selected the top 200 wonderful and worthy finalists. The top 40 causes will each receive $25,000! That is life-changing funding for these local causes, and you can make a difference by helping decide which ones are the lucky recipients.  

Through MAY 16th, anyone who has the free State Farm Neighborhood Assist Facebook application can vote EVERY DAY for their favorite cause(s).

Past winner: The Tool Library
There are five finalists in my state of Georgia. I am voting for Investing in Girls, a program that starts Atlanta teen girls on the positive path towards high school graduation and college via strong female mentors. The State Farm Neighborhood Assist funding would allow this program to expand to additional schools within Metro Atlanta - bringing a leadership symposium, monthly classroom sessions, and a college immersion day.

Past winner: Hearing our Heroes
Check out which causes near you are eligible finalists and vote every day until MAY 16th:

We can all be good neighbors and make a difference! Vote today.
