Be Inspired by the Pine-Sol® Lady
Diane Amos is “The Pine-Sol® Lady” and has served as the spokesperson for Pine-Sol® Brand Cleaners’ advertising campaigns since 1993. Outside this role, Diane is a stand-up comedian who acts in films and stage plays. But off stage, Diane may be found performing acts of kindness in her community.
“The way I make a powerful difference is to spread myself around,” said Diane. “I volunteer. I speak to students and encourage them to follow their dreams. I help out teachers at local schools. I teach my kids about service and get them involved in the community with me.”
Diane credits her mother as the one who inspires her to make a powerful difference every day. As an African-American single mother of two girls, Diane’s mother faced incredible odds and obstacles. Yet Diane explains that she always had the time and energy to treat people with incredible thoughtfulness and help those in need. Even though her mother has passed, Diane still follows in her footsteps.
When asked about ideas of how anyone can make a powerful difference, Diane says: “Be observant and look around your neighborhood to see how you can help. Volunteer to read books to children at a local library. Help the elderly write letters to their loved ones. Some of the smallest acts of service can help others in a surprisingly big way.”
