***I’ve got a few giveaways to catch up on this week. Let’s call it Christmas in July, shall we?***
We ran into Walmart over the weekend for a couple things (it’s never just a couple things, is it?!), and had to check the clearance section for next year’s baseball gloves. Motoring through the aisles, I thought “Whaaa Whaaa Whaaat?!” when I saw it. The school supplies lists are out!
I suppose it is about that time, but I’m not looking. Yet.
While I may be in denial, school really is just around the corner. In our neck of the recession-affected woods, schools, especially Tiny Town-esque schools, need support from the whole community to serve students well.
One way we try to help that doesn’t cost me anything out of pocket, is participating in the General Mills Box Tops 4 Education program.
For each Box Top clipped and collected at your school of choice, 10¢ is donated. It adds up quick; last year schools earned $49 million just from Box Tops!
Right now, WalMart is carrying up to 70 participating products that each have 4 Box Tops! Be on the lookout during your next shopping trip, and don’t forget to save the tops for your school.
Speaking of a WalMart shopping trip, I don’t know too many people who would refuse a little help with that. I have a $25 WalMart Gift Card for one of my readers, courtesy of WalMart and General Mills. Want one? Simply leave a comment: Is back-to-school shopping a dreaded chore or a fun event for your family? How do you make it special?
As always, feel free to over-achieve and earn an extra entry or two by sharing this giveaway on Facebook, Twitter, or your own blog. Please leave a comment with a link to your tweet or FB post.
Giveaway ends Friday, July 29, at 11:59 pm, CST. A winner will be randomly drawn and notified by email.
