Pushing the limits for Peanut Butter

Shaniqua Simuel donated 340 jars of peanut butter this month as part of her effort to win a $7500 scholarship from DoSomething.org. The organization is targeted for older teens and people in their early twenties. Shaniqua took on PB + Slam Jam.

In less than a week, she managed to get 340 jars of peanut butter. How did she do it? Her methods were varied: calls, texts, emails, flyers, social media, and even going door to door. Her amazing results surpassed her goal of 100 jars.

When asked about her motivation, Shaniqua says, “The reason I jumped right into action is because this time I wasn’t just accepting a donors’ money. This time I am giving. I am giving to someone who needs something nutritious and filling. This thought kept me determined.”
