‘The Bachelor’: Catherine Giudici Lowe Tells Us About Her New Partnership
Catherine Giudici Lowe, the former contestant on The Bachelor who captured Sean Lowe’s heart, is focusing on a new initiative. Here’s what Lowe told us about an exciting partnership she’s working on.
How Catherine Giudici Lowe and her family have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic
Lowe says she and her family have been doing well during the pandemic. “We haven’t been super negatively affected by this, so we’re just taking this time to give back to other communities,” Lowe tells Showbiz Cheat Sheet. She says World Kindness Day reminds her how blessed she and her family have been despite the circumstances in the world.
Catherine Giudici Lowe’s new partnership
Lowe says she has seen how the pandemic has impacted communities, especially the elderly. She was looking for a way to bring a bit of sunshine to older people who are having a difficult time. Consequently, she partnered with Ivory for their Acts of Gentle Kindness initiative just in time for World Kindness Day.
“They just feel really isolated right now, so the great thing about the Ivory Acts of Kindness initiative is that we can put together these Ivory care packs to support the elderly and make them feel super loved and seen and give them the essentials that they need,” Lowe told Showbiz Cheat Sheet. “The care packs have Ivory body wash and Ivory deodorant. There are also some cozy blankets and some games so that they can keep their minds sharp.”
Lowe says it’s important to give back to people in need. The elderly community is often overlooked, so she was happy that she could do something to help. “The elderly are a community that have been really impacted during the pandemic. It’s been great seeing these grandmas and grandpas smiling because they feel so grateful.”
Teaching her children acts of kindness
Lowe says it’s also important to spread the lesson of kindness to children. Some ways she suggests teaching children how to be kind include reminding them to make eye contact and to remember to say “please” and “thank you.” She says kindness could also be as simple as waving hello to someone or offering a compliment.
“I think instilling certain principles in your children, and also doing them yourself is important. Children mirror you and they see what you’re doing and if you’re nice to the person at the grocery store. They see if you let someone take your spot when you leave the parking lot. There are so many chances to teach your children what’s right to do. People should know their actions are going to be reflected in their children.”
Making memories with her grandmother and daughter
Lowe and her daughter, Mia, spread some joy and kindness by traveling to Seattle to visit her grandmother. She says they took all the COVID-19 precautions. She was grateful that her grandmother allowed her and her daughter to visit during the pandemic since there was a slight risk due to her age. She was happy that she was able to spend some time with her and make new memories.
“Being able to see her and have her hold her great-granddaughter for the first time was really special,” says Lowe. “It was such an amazing memory that I will never forget.”
