Donating School Supplies with All You Magazine's Champion for Kids Campaign #AllYouCFK #CBias

My son donating school supplies to his principal, Ms. Livingston... 
We can all make a difference one simple service project at a time...

On March 12th, I wrote a blog post telling everyone about the Couponing for Good All You Magazine Champions for Kids Campaign.  Champions for Kids is an organization that encourages people to give to children via simple service projects in their community. They have partnered with All You Magazine to highlight the power of the coupon since coupons can be used to stretch our budgets and increase our power of giving.

I was given the opportunity by Collective Bias and All You Magazine to be part of a simple service project to donate school supplies to a public school to enable students to continue their school work without any interruption due to lack of basic supplies.  All You Magazine and Collective Bias sponsored my project to donate $25 in school supplies purchased through my local Walmart store.

On Friday, my son and I packed up the donation and took the bag of supplies to his school.  We met with the principal, Ms. Livingston to explain the donation and get her thoughts on the importance of parents doing simple service projects that directly impact kids.

"I am all for any program where schools and parents work together for the good of the students" said Principal Livingston.  She expressed her gratitude on behalf of the school for our donation as we spoke briefly about the importance of students having the necessary basic supplies in order to do their work.  School supplies are just something that schools can never have enough of.  My son was so proud as he handed her the bag of school supplies. I think he now has a much better understanding of the importance of giving.

I truly believe that If we call could do at least one simple service project to help kids, the collective impact could be life changing.
