*Disclosure - I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Boys & Girls Clubs of America. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
I have exciting news to share with you all. I have been chosen to be a Boys & Girls Club (BGCA) Back-to-School-Ambassador. Why is this exciting news? Well, for a few years of my life I worked as a director at a before/after school program for elementary aged kids. They have a special place in my heart. This age is SO fun to hangout with, and I loved working with them, kids are SO fun, aren't they?! The Boys and Girls Club, specifically, has so many great opportunities for kids of all ages, and from all different walks of life.
Now, looking back, I realize how important before and after-school programs are to children. I watched some of these kids struggle, because they weren’t prepared for school. This really tugs at my heart; it is such a shame, because most kids this age, are eager and ready to learn about the world around them. I am so excited to share this great opportunity with all of you! There is a way YOU AND I can help these children, who may be struggling with things at home that we have no idea about. Help the kids in your neighborhood, by making their ‘back to school’ experience worry free. BGCA has partnered with jcpenney for the ’jcpenneycares round up campaign’. This is such an awesome campaign; when shopping at JCP in the month of July, you will have the chance to round-up your purchase to the nearest whole dollar to help make a difference by supporting after-school programs at Boys and Girls Clubs across the country. And guess what? 100% of the donations raised will go towards BGCA! How cool is that? Funds raised at checkout will go toward supporting BGCA’s More Members More Often initiative. The initiative focuses on attracting more your people to join the Club, motivating existing members to increase their participation and retaining youth as members over longer periods of time.
|Helping children start their school year off on the right foot!|
So please, I am asking you now to do your part to help. This is such an easy opportunity, how could you pass it up? Most likely you will already be shopping for back to school items for your kids anyway, why not check out JCP – and “round up”!
