Box Tops

Not long ago, I joined a blog network called Cafe Mom, a fun site for moms to connect. Recently, they informed me about a great contest put on by Box Tops for Education. I thought it was worth passing on the info to all you parents out there. You know Box Tops, you cut the symbol off the box top and the kids take it to school. They all add up and the school can get things with them for the school. If you have a child in grade school, you surely have heard of them. I don't buy a lot of boxed foods, but over the course of a year, I can still manage to hand in quite a few box tops. When I do get convenience foods for lunches and all I try to get things that have the box tops.
Now they are doing a contest together with the Kimberly-Clark company called Bonus Box Tops. You can now find box tops on things like Huggies, Cottonelle and Kleenex. This is neat because you can buy the kleenex boxes to donate to the class and give them box tops at the same time.
I found it easy to enter the contest, and I haven't got any spam or anything from it, which has made me really happy. You can enter here every day between June 28 and September 15. Why would you want to enter? This is what you can win for your child's school- 100,000 Bonus Box Tops-which translates into $10,000 for your school. That is nothing to sneeze at, people! I would love to win that for my children's school! BUT, as they say in the infomercials, THAT'S NOT ALL! They are also going to give the school an exclusive concert with Jordan Pruitt, who is a big name around Radio Disney. I'm sure the children would be thrilled with that, too! The winner will be chosen at random on September 22. I'm planning on entering every day. Wish me luck; I hope all the parents from Freedom Academy will join in, because I never win anything. But, with this thing, I don't have much to lose and the children have a lot to gain. It would sure beat having to buy stuff for the annual fund raiser! So, if you want to enter too, go to

Wow, I'll have to go check it out! I always save all those box tops, milk covers, soup labels, etc... Now my "big girls" don't want to bring them to school anymore so I have to try get my younger ones excited to be bringing in a kazillion labels, tops, tabs, etc.! I just love your blog, by the way! I haven't been able to visit blog-land in such of a long time and finally got to update mine and do some visiting around. Yours is one of my favorites! :)
