We’re just about 6 weeks into the school year here in Georgia and I have a confession to make: I’m already overwhelmed! I am a working wife and mom of 4 kids: one son that is 19 and 3 girls that are 10, 6, and 4. (Yes, I am dealing with college and Pre-K. Pray for me.)
Since school has started, I have been inundated with papers that include: multiple fundraisers to sell candy and popcorn, skate night fundraisers, ice cream social fundraisers, fast food night fundraisers, pizza night fundraisers, school pictures, and school spirit wear orders.
And while I want to do everything that I can to support the kids’ schools, I am not able to psychically or financially support all of the activities and fundraisers that come our way. But believe it or not, there was one fundraiser that I was glad to have the family participate in: supporting the our school’s Box Tops for Education goals.
Participating in the Box Tops for Education school fundraiser was a no brain-er for this busy mom because the program:
The Box Tops for education program has helped America’s schools earn over $475 Million towards their educational goals. And, I love the fact that this program makes it easy for busy moms and families like mine to participate in helping our school earn money.
BMWK – If you had the ability to help your child’s school earn thousand’s of dollars by doing something that you already do, would you? Leave us a comment below to let us know if you are already clipping box tops for your child’s school. Or, if you plan to start. We would love to know how many people are participating!

We will be providing information and stories throughout the school year in hopes of encouraging our community to take advantage of the millions of dollars that are being given to schools across the country each year.
