Celebrity mom Kimora Lee Simmons poses with students from Alain L. Locke Elementary – P.S. 208 at the 3rd Annual Bounty Make A Clean Difference Program at Alain L. Locke Elementary – P.S. 208 on February 18, 2011 in New York City.
The mom of three has teamed up with Bounty for their “Make a Clean Difference” campaign. She tells GlobalGrind, “It’s about cleaning our schools, which is contributing to a better education, to healthier, happier kids, to kids that thrive in a better, more creative environment. Everything that we do now for our kids, it’s like we are doing it for ourselves, we’re doing it for our future. It’s kind of a selfish thought if you think about it, but we get this back.”
She adds, “I think in this time, schools are suffering. Not just in New York, but everywhere. I personally believe that our teachers, our nurses, our caregivers, ambulance workers, these are people who do so much for our community, so much for our development and growth as a society and they’re the least recognized people, and they’re the lowest paid on the totem pole. i think that my teacher should be paid like A-Rod. We have to slowly turn that around. This is a small step to that. It’s not gonna get [teachers] A-Rod money but it’s gonna get them recognition, support, and the communities involvement as a whole. This is a message that has to go home. The teachers can’t do it alone.” (Read More)
