Holy smokes- WHERE HAS THE SUMMER GONE!?
Ah yes, it's almost that time again... the time when our little ones will embark on another great learning adventure.
One of the things we always do when this time of year comes around is shopping. The kids usually have outgrown their old clothes, or worn them out, and are in need of some new ones. If you plan on doing some school shopping this year, too, why don't you check out what JC Penney's has to offer. JCP and the Boys and Girls Club of America have teamed up and if you make a purchase in August, you can round up your purchase to help BGCA. Rounding up your purchase is a great way to help out, and every penny helps!
Disney has also partnered with the BGCA to launch the Tools for Back to School initiative. This initiative features a pop-quiz style game, where supplies are donated to BGCA for every 5 correct answers you score!
I personally played, and I have to say- it's fun and you will learn a lot. The questions aren't too hard, and I enjoyed learning about the Boys and Girls Club of America. In the lower right hand part of the screen you will see a number written in "chalk" which goes up with each correct answer! This number shows how many correct answers there have been. This is a fantastic way to help out at no cost to you.
While you're on the BGCA page be sure to check out their tip sheets that are available on the left hand side of the page under the "Get Ready" header. You will find tips on time management, thinking about college, homework and more!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Boys and Girls Club. I received a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
