If you have been following my blog, you know that I am doing a monthly “give-away-fun-stuff-for-a-good-cause,” and it’s that time again! Free stuff with a purpose! Can I get a “WOO-WOO!?”
So, since it’s August…let’s do a BACK TO SCHOOL give-a-way!
The bins of markers (perfect tips), the shelves of binders (no cracks and bends), the racks of book bags (with zippers that work), the packs of lined paper (free of red pen marks), the boxes of #2 pencils (test-ready), the aisles lined with lunch boxes (void of PB&J leftovers), the crates of notebooks (awaiting assignments), and of course…the crates of PLANNERS!! Seriously, who doesn’t like a brand-new, lovely-covered planner to hold their color-coded homework assignments!?! Okay, okay, so maybe I was the only child who got thrills and chills over my August planner!?! Anyone else willing to confess?? Raise your hand; you’re not alone!
I will not be angry at all if one of you slips and tells my husband that I would love this Vera Bradley planner…not even a little angry.
Anyway, moving on…
For some kids, packing their brand-new book bags with their Lisa Frank binders (I think I just told you I was born in the 80’s) and super cool gel pens is both exciting AND expected.
While for other kids, the school supply list is just another piece of paper reminding them of what they don’t have AND can’t buy.
So what am I giving away this month? Well, I’m glad you asked because this month is going to require a little effort and give on your part!
In the comment section below, reminisce about your school days gone by and share the supply that you were most excited to buy as a youngster.
Using a random lottery system, two of you lucky winners will be chosen on Wednesday to receive a $20 gift card to Target (one of my favorite places on this planet) in the hopes that you will either buy school supplies to donate to your local school…give them to a student who needs helping filling their book bag this school year…or any other creative way that you can find to use this money to help a student in need. Oh, and I’ll also be sending those winners a $5 Starbucks gift card to help fuel them as they shop and give.
And if you’re sad that you’re not one of Wednesday’s winners, no worries! Nothing is stopping YOU from giving TOO!
HAPPY MONDAY, HAPPY COMMENTING, HAPPY GIVING!
