Pay it Forward and helping someone in need is a great feeling.Last year myself and 84 other bloggers pay if forward by purchasing school supplies for children in need.I along with 84 other bloggers were selected to participate again this year.Campus Book Rentals gave us all $25 to spend on getting as much school supplies as we could get to help a child in need.
In my town some schools get a grant and all the supplies are provided. I wanted to make sure the child I was purchasing for was a child that did not attend a fully funded school. I was in a local group on Facebook and sent a request asking if anyone knew of someone in need and to contact me. I was amazed at the need within my own community. This young mother sent me a message saying her home had just caught on fire and she was not getting much help even from her parents.My heart just broke .I had several others contact me and lord knows I wish I could help them all.
I went shopping on Friday and normally I shop at Walgreens. The manager will normally donate a book bag and I am able to help more than just one child. My only problem was the manager had already left for the day and she is the only one that can make that call on the donation. I was not sure I would be back in town before this child needed his supplies before going to school.I decided to just purchase the book bag, I was well within my budget.
This little boy is in the 1st. grade and his supply list was not big at all.In most stores you can pick up a school supply list that teachers request.
I was able to get everything pictured for $24.36
Walgreens sales paper had a store coupon for just about everything on the list.
