Champions for Kids
Did you know that more than 16 million American children live in poverty. For many, buying the items they need to succeed in the classroom can be a challenge.
That’s why it is important for us to join together and help these children to get the supplies they need for the coming school year.
The initiative is taking place in more than 3,000 Walmart stores across the U.S., collecting school supplies for children in need! Anyone can participate in the campaign simply by purchasing and donating a backpack full of school supplies at your local Walmart store from July 7 through August 1. In addition to the school supplies, each backpack contains a coupon booklet valued at over $50! Simply remove the coupon booklet from the backpack to use yourself and place the backpack full of supplies in the school bus donation bin – the money you’ll save by using the coupon booklet will pay for the backpack you donated, and your donation will help a local child. For a full list of participating stores, click here.
Children with quality school supplies are better equipped to succeed academically and creatively, and that’s why The Motherhood is joining Champions for Kids, along with Elmer’s, Purell, Unilever and Walmart, for this Twitter party to spread the word about a SIMPLE Giving initiative that can help give kids the resources they need to thrive.
During the party, we’ll be sharing more ways to give back locally, including Champions For Kids’ SIMPLE Service Projects such as the Lend a Hand Project. SIMPLE Service Projects provide easy ways to help kids in your own community through four easy steps — Gather, Learn, Give and Share! Learn more by joining us for the #SIMPLEGiving party!
WHEN: Thursday, Jul 10 @ 1pm – 2pm (EST)
WHERE: Twitter Chat
PRIZES: Five prizes will be given to randomly selected participants who answer the trivia questions correctly. Each prize is a $50 Walmart gift card. Prizes are limited to U.S. participants age 18 and older only.
