Backpacks for Charity: YOU can help!

I’m working on a little project and I wanted to fill you in. As part of the Walmart Moms program, I was asked recently to fill a backpack and think about donating it to charity.

Yesterday, while driving to visit some blogging friends, Doug and I were brainstorming on how we could help more than just one or two children. And we thought, the only way is to get more of our readers, other bloggers, and their readers, and friends on board.

Here are the details…

  • Buy a backpack and fill it with school supplies {clothes, paper goods or both}
  • Find a local school or charity that you would like to donate to
  • Write a blog post sharing about your donation {if you would like}
  • Write a blog post getting your readers and other bloggers involved
  • Come back to Hoosier Homemade and add your post to the linky on Friday, August 12th.
  • Tell your Facebook fans too and invite them to share a picture of the backpack they donated

I’m super excited about this my friends!! Just imagine how big this could be! Even if only you and a couple of your readers filled a backpack, we could help a lot of children in need.

Grab a button…and tell everyone!!

    What a wonderful idea! I hope my county, or even better township, has a program in place that I can donate to. While we don’t have kids now, we will some day and we both appreciate how important education is.

  3. What a great idea…love it!!!!

    Our local grocery store does this for us with the school requested supplies inside. I just take the pack to the register and pay. It is so easy that even I can do it and I know I won’t mess it up.
