Join the Boys and Girls Club and Help Make This Back To School Season Great for Everyone

It’s been a crazy week here preparing the kids for back to school. We’ve done haircuts, finished our clothes shopping and are just about finished with supplies. Friday we head out to meet the teachers and until Monday we will be trying to get back on a schedule; early to bed, early to rise once again.

One thing about the back to school season that always hits us hard is the cost. Supplies are so essential to a productive year, yet in these hard times can be a burden on many families. I was touched this year to see so many great businesses and organizations focusing on getting supplies in the hands of children and families who might not otherwise be able to afford to do so. Their efforts help those children to build self-confidence, boost self-esteem and achieve greater success in the classroom – all as a result of being properly prepared for school.

This year the Boys and Girls Club of America (BGCA) and Disney have partnered to launch the Tools for Back to School initiative and helping get donations out to the students. This initiative features a pop-quiz style game, where supplies are donated to BGCA for every correct answer you score. This is a simple and fun way to get you and your children involved n given back. Answering five questions, gets your brain going and completing the goal of five questions provides a wonderful feeling, knowing you have just help set the tone for a student to have a productive school year. Once your done playing the game you can pass it along to a friend via Facebook or Twitter. The more people that play the more donations that go out!

The BGCA hasn’t stop there though. The BGCA has also partnered with jcpenny for the month of August providing register round ups. Join jcp cares by rounding up at the register this August to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of America and 4-H, programs that inspire and empower kids across the country. At last checked they have already raised over 700K…amazing. Join by donating now, or remembering to shop jcpenny for all your back to school essentials this August and round it up!

The Boys and Girls Club of America has already positively impacted the lives of many children and I salute them in their mission to enable all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The BAGCA wants to make this year and every year this best school year possible for everyone and are offering different educational content and tip sheets for parents to download and utilize right from their website.

So step up and make a difference this year by supporting the efforts of the BAGCA and partners Disney and jcp cares.

Have you donated to a back to school cause this year or had a good experience thanks to 
one of these amazing companies and organizations?

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

I am glad that they are helping people who truly need it. This time of year is always tough financially, even for people who don't normally struggle with stuff like that.
