Box Tops and eLabels and Escape from Winter!

Lots to share with you today, so let's get started: 

First of all, Winter is upon us in a big way - in fact, I just saw about 3 flurries when I took out the trash a few minutes ago! Become a member of Right@Home [an SC Johnson program] and if you are one of the first 10,ooo people to sign up you can get a FREE Escape from Winter which includes: Glade PlugIns Scented warmer, Hawaiian Breeze refill and a coupon good for future refills.  Definitely a Cool Idea to lift our spirits as the weather gets wicked.

Box Tops for Education have been around for years and odds are that you have seen them on items that you purchase even if you don't have school aged kids. I find them on the Huggies and Pull Ups I buy, muffin mix, frozen biscuits - everywhere - and even though our kids aren't in school my husband is a teacher and I send them to school with him. I'm also registered online with Box Tops and during the month of February they are having the "I Love My School" sweepstakes. You can enter every day until March 1st for a chance to win an additional 1,000 Box Tops for your school. 

What do you need to do? If you are already registered with Box Tops, all you need to do is go to the site each day and login, fill in your information and enter. If you are not registered, you'll need to do that and I think you might have to assign your Box Tops to a school in your area. There's a zip code look-up feature if you don't know the exact name of the school or the address. It's easy. Really. And definitely a Cool Idea even if it's a long shot that you're school might win. Spread the word because the more moms and dads and grandparents and friends and adopted aunts and uncles that are entering the sweepstakes for our kids the more likely they might be the beneficiaries of the extra 1,000 Box Tops that are being given away this month. There are 28 schools that will get these Bonus Box Tops so enter every day!!

Campbell's Labels for Education has been around for 35 Years and has given "families and community members a way to support support their local schools".  Labels are found on Campbell's soup can's, Goldfish crackers and other products and are collected and turned in to schools the same way that Box Tops for Education are. One additional opportunity with Campbell's is the eLabel. If you register your Kroger card on their site they will track your relevant purchases and credit your account so that you don't have to clip the labels.  eLabel points are credited to your school on a monthly basis and the account says to continue to clip labels and barcodes - so I don't see anything wrong in doing both. 

Once again, if you don't have kids in school or preschool yet go ahead and register and send these label to your neighbors school and register your Kroger card to pick up the extra eLabels. Currently, the eLabel program has been extended until June 30, 2009 which makes me pretty happy, especially since as the mom of two toddlers we pretty consistently buy Goldfish crackers which are an Campbell's label product!! 

These companies are trying to help make it easier on our schools and if we are buying these products anyway take the extra moment to clip the Box Top or Campbell's logo respectively and turn it in to your school of choice. These are Cool Ideas that will benefit us as parents and as a community.
