Julianne Moore, award-winning actress and mother of two, joined volunteers at PS 63 William McKinley Elementary School in Manhattan to help clean up classrooms in honor of Bounty's Make a Clean Difference Campaign.

On February 15, the fresh scent of cleaning products filled PS 63 William McKinley Elementary School as the students, decked out in neon green "We <3 Our School, Make a Clean Difference" t-shirts, alongside celebrity mom Julianne Moore, used a mountain of Bounty paper towels and a little elbow grease to clean up the classrooms. From the yellow cabinets and green tubs of books that lined the shelves to the coffee cans of pencils and little wooden tables and chairs, students, teachers, and the award-winning actress sprayed, scrubbed, and wiped away the classroom grime.

Julianne Moore participates in Bounty's Make a Clean Difference CampaignIn honor of "We Love Our School Week," Bounty gave 1,000 public schools cleaning kits and, with Moore's help, encouraged more than 25,000 parents and volunteers to pitch in so students across the country can learn in a healthier, more hygienic environment. Mother to two students at William McKinley, 7th grader Caleb and 3rd grader Liv, Moore teamed up with Bounty and the Make a Clean Difference Campaign because cleaning supplies were among the things she saw start to dwindle with the budget cuts, she says.

Moore is active in a number of children's issues, specifically with charity events that revolve around education and poverty. "Something we are owed in this country is an equal education," Moore says. "But that's not always guaranteed." She also works to instill a sense of volunteerism in her children, who have a passion for their own causes. Moore says one year, instead of receiving birthday presents, her children opted to give money to a favorite charity. Her daughter, Liv, loves to bake and donate the profits she makes from selling the goodies, and both children have helped Save the Children and the World Wildlife Foundation under Moore's guidance.
