Bag it Forward with Elmer’s and Adopt-A-Clasroom Program

As an educator, I love programs that support students and teachers in classrooms. Many people do not realize how much time and money are put into classroom supplies by the professionals teaching your child day in and day out. I know that when I was in the classroom, I did not blink twice and just bought what I needed since it would benefit the kids.

Thanks to Maricris at Zensible Mama, I found out about a great new program from Elmers glue and Walmart. She sent me a virtual bag of school supplies like the one below.


Now, it is my turn. The reason I am participating is the fun and fabulous cause. Each person that writes a blog post or puts a note in Facebook earns $10 for charity. Elmer’s will donate up to $10,000 to Adopt-A-Classroom when you participate through Elmer’s Virtual Bag it Forward.
