Encourages young women to feel good about themselves and turn their passion into action
Lauren Alaina: By Helping Others, You Can Also Help Yourself
American singer and songwriter Lauren Alaina is the latest music artist collaborating with State Farm to inspire music fans to take action and give back to their local community. Lauren's video on NeighborhoodofGood.com encourages her fans to help make neighborhoods throughout the country stronger through volunteering.
"When I learned what Neighborhood of Good® from State Farm is all about, I was so excited. I believe everyone likes to help, there’s just a lack of knowledge on how to do it," Lauren said. Talking about an issue is an important first step, but real change comes from getting up and doing something about it."
Her volunteer efforts stem from personal experience.
"When I started my career as a 16-year-old girl, I was very insecure and very unhealthy about it," she said. "I had an eating disorder. The turning point was when my mom made me look in the mirror and say three things I loved about myself. I couldn’t say anything, not one thing. That moment is when I started doing and being better for me.
"By sharing my story, I hope to empower girls to believe they are strong and beautiful just as they are. I feel like my story speaks to young women because I’ve been through it – and I will always be going through it. I want to inspire them to not only feel good about themselves, but turn their passion into action and empower others."
Launched in 2017, the Neighborhood of Good® aims to turn caring into doing. It was created to inspire, encourage and help people do anything – big or small – to make a positive difference in their neighborhoods.
The website, NeighborhoodofGood.com®, is a place for people to find causes they’re passionate about, close to home. By entering their zip code, they can find a local volunteer opportunity.
The NeighborhoodOfGood.com video series explores each artist's personal stories. It shares causes important to them, and how NeighborhoodOfGood.com can be the catalyst for their fans to give back.
