Shawn Johnson reveals the simple act that could help hundreds of Olympic hopefuls

There's more people can do to help their favorite Olympic athletes during the Rio games than just cheering them on during their competitions.

In fact, fans can help out with just a single Tweet. Shawn Johnson, four time Olympic gold and silver medalist and gymnastics icon has recently teamed up with Smucker's, along with the United States Olympic Committee to help American athletes succeed at their Olympic dreams.

As Johnson notes, "Smucker's is doing a really cool campaign where every time you use the hashtag, which is the #PBJ4TeamUSA, they donate a dollar to the US Olympic Committee. So this is a cause close to my heart because it helps everyone go to the Olympics and see their dream through. It's a very close connection. It's more than a PB&J, it's helping someone's dream come true." Every single donation will help support Team USA in a huge way.

We recently sat down Shawn Johnson to talk about her newest campaign, her favorite moment from the 2008 Olympics, and her at-home athletic competitions with her husband Andrew East. Check it out above!
