If you have been to any department stores lately, the secret is out. Summer is over according to the retail world, and BACK TO SCHOOL time is underway.
As a counselor, I have worked with many students and families who cannot afford school supplies. As a daughter of a teacher, I have been on countless shopping trips to buy school supplies with my mother for her students. Teachers (and counselors too!) spend a lot of their own money on school supplies for their students.
This week's Fabulous Find, Bag it Forward offers a great opportunity to help students and teachers by supporting Adopt-A-Classroom. Elmer's is will donate $10 for each blog post donating a "virtual bag of school supplies" and supporting this amazing campaign!
Please forward this to everyone you know, especially bloggers who can post it to their blog!
