Many people don’t know a lot about the Bronx aside from what they have seen on television or in the movies. This borough of New York City is often depicted in a less than favorable light and we don’t get the credit that we deserve for being full of decent and hardworking people. That is why I was so excited when I found out that Gain was coming to the Bronx to transform local neighborhood laundromats into something special. I immediately knew that this would help to spread an unexpected dose of joy throughout our community!
This past Friday, I had the pleasure of meeting Bronx-born musician Leslie Grace, who has partnered with Gain, to showcase how art, music and culture collide to celebrate the launch of six community-decorated Laundromats throughout the Bronx, Spanish Harlem and Washington Heights. We were able to see Leslie perform live and to view the beautiful artwork that children throughout each community displayed at each laundromat.
In addition to seeing Leslie Grace perform live, community members were able to view the art itself, receive Gain Flings giveaways, and take “selfies” within the art installation for a chance to win greater prizing utilizing through the Instagram sweepstakes using the hashtag #MusicToYourNose. These Portraits of Hope are infusing community pride throughout our borough of the Bronx. Make sure you visit your nearest laundromat location and participate in the Instagram ‘selfie’ #MusicForYourNose sweepstakes which runs from 5/16-6/16.
I can’t even begin to tell you what a wonderful time I had! Not only was it a pleasure and a privilege to meet Leslie Grace, but the delicious scent of Gain Flings is indescribable! Thanks to their 3-in-1 benefit of Gain Detergent, OxiBoost, and Febreeze, the new single-use detergent pac is the Best Gain Ever. They provide a powerful clean with the added power of Oxi Boost and the benefit of malodor removal of Febreze and they give you even more of that amazing Gain scent you love! It’s a laundry experience unlike any other – it’s like Music to Your Nose!
