More than 40 million Americans are family caregivers, taking care of parents, spouses, partners, and other adult loved ones. To help caregivers get the support they need to take care of themselves and their loved ones, AARP and the Ad Council are continuing their successful Caregiver Assistance campaign with new PSAs, created pro bono by agency Spike DDB, designed to reach the underserved African-American caregiver population.
“Many people will spend more of their time and resources caring for their aging parents than they did raising their own children,” said AARP CEO Jo Ann Jenkins. “African-American caregivers are disproportionately affected as most are much younger than their white counterparts and often leave the workforce to provide care on a full-time basis. These new PSAs will help create greater awareness for caregivers who tackle tough issues every day, and provide information on the many resources that are available to help them meet their needs and those of their loved ones.”

At a time when healthy New Year’s resolutions are starting to fade, Primrose Schools, a high-quality early education and care provider with more than 290 schools coast-to-coast, is helping parents and children get excited about healthy living through its Healthy Bodies program. All Primrose schools across the country are focused on helping families live healthier, active lives in 2015 and beyond by incorporating fun activities into the classroom and providing resources for parents to use at home.
“At Primrose, we know the habits children develop early on shape their lifestyles into adulthood,” says Jo Kirchner, president and CEO of Primrose Schools. “It’s important for care providers and parents to work together, especially during the crucial first five years of a child’s life, to foster habits, values and behaviors that will lead to healthy choices later in life. Active Minds, Healthy Bodies and Happy Hearts® has been a part of our DNA at Primrose since our inception and our programs continue to evolve with ever-changing technology so that we can better partner with and equip parents to foster healthy living too.”

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, more than 34.6 million adults ages 18 and above do not have a high school diploma. In an effort to combat this critical issue, the Ad Council and the Dollar General Literacy Foundation joined today to launch new public service advertisements (PSAs) on behalf of their national GED Achievement campaign. This multimedia campaign is designed to provide high school dropouts the encouragement and information needed to begin the road to a GED diploma.
Recent data shows that students who drop out of high school tend to earn less and have a lower quality of life. Many of them must work multiple jobs just to support their family. Moreover, as of 2009, nearly 30% of adults with household incomes at or below the federal poverty line did not have a high school credential.
