New York, NY May 20, 2006 -- Love Our Children USA announced today that supermodel Cindy Crawford honored Yvette Manessis Corporon as one of Swiffer’s Amazing Women of the Year with a $5,000 donation to Love Our Children USA.
Yvette Manessis Corporon, one of five women chosen as Swiffer’s Amazing Women of the Year is a mother of two and an award-winning producer and writer for a syndicated entertainment television show. In her spare time, Yvette is co-founder of Role Mommy, a lifestyle initiative dedicated to today's working moms. Role Mommy, a supporter of Love Our Children USA, brings together working moms from all walks of life for camaraderie, comfort and inspiration.
The Swiffer Amazing Women of the Year Awards took place on May 10 th in Los Angeles at the Regent Beverly Wilshire. Cindy Crawford, spokeswoman for Swiffer's Amazing Women of the Year program, received a $25,000 donation in her name to her favorite charity and awarded each of the five Amazing Women a $5,000 in their name for their selected charity.
Ross Ellis, Love Our Children USA Founder and Chief Executive Officer said “We are honored to be selected as Yvette’s favorite charity. And, we are so proud of Yvette for being a Swiffer Amazing Woman
of the Year. As the co-founder of Role Mommy Yvette and her Role Mommy co-founder Beth Feldman
are always amazing in my eyes. They are working moms who balance it all.”
Ellis also stated “We are so grateful to Yvette, Cindy, Swiffer and everyone at Proctor & Gamble. This donation will help us in our mission to break the cycle of violence against children.”
Different from other prevention groups Love Our Children USA fills a critical gap in prevention resources, concentrated parenting education and public information about the issue – filling a critical need and urgency. It gets to the root of the cause of child violence for more than 3 million children each year …for the almost 1.8 million children
who are reported missing each year … and for the 580,000 children in foster care in our country today – breaking the cycle of violence against children before it starts.
“We hope these awards will show mothers all over the country that they can juggle it all and be amazing moms in their own right said Ellis.”
