Chepner’s Box Top Challenge
Just as a writer doesn’t get to be a writer without readers, no one gets to be a successful blogger anything without help from others. It follows then that part of being a success is giving back when and how you can.
It’s been awhile since I’ve come across a boxtop challenge. We did things like that in my school growing up–collect soup labels, box tops, soda caps, coupons, even beer can tabs, as fundraisers. The concept is everyone collects as many as they can–bags and bags of them. Then the school sends them in to the corporation who makes the product. Usually the corporation sends back a check for what amounts to pennies on the pound for all of these proofs of purchase. This time each boxtop represents ten cents American. That’s a donation to be proud of.
I’ll let the screen shot from Cheryl’s blog, Mad Baggage, tell you the story. Click it to leave a comment about this worthwhile project.
The screen shot below will take you right to Chepners’s blog where you’ll find the information you need to help out.
If you’re like me–not very good at saving things, and don’t gather many boxtops anyway–you might do what I do.
- Find a big envelope and address it to Chepner’s House and attach a few bucks for postage.
- Then find the organizer who’s really good at these things and give the envelope to her. Yes, I said her, because it’s almost always a she. Isn’t it?
Look for someone who is busy who probably has a few kids herself that eat a lot of cereal.
- Take these screen shots from my blog and their corresponding links and spread the word for Chepner.
Who knows what good things might happen with a little help from folks like us?
