This isn’t just any event to me. It is the single most important event we do. The reason is simple we have the ability to make a real difference using the power of our influence. We have the power to inspire others to give by setting the example ourselves. I realize budgets are tight so we bust our bottoms every year to find a brand to sponsor our event to give backpacks to kids in need. The concept is simple our sponsor will provide you with $25. Then we challenge you to buy the most supplies possible and a backpack. We ask that you donate it to a child in need. We ask that you blog about it and tell your readers. We ask that you thank our sponsor for making it possible.
I was a teacher and I can tell you the power of a stranger believing in you enough to give you a brand new bag full of supplies can make a huge impact. We are telling these children you matter. We believe in you. We think you deserve the tools you need to be successful. I even put notes in the bags I donate. I get my kids involved. It is important for them to understand how giving works and how important school is. This is a part of my heart. I hope you will consider joining us Madame Deals Media as we put on our annual event to give back to our community by enforcing the power of education one backpack at a time. We will work together to promote one another and our cause and hopefully inspire others to match our donation or participate. We will make sure that we are setting an example and getting people to think about the power of giving back. I am a firm believer in paying it forward. I look forward to another great year and hundreds of new backpacks for kids in need.
Here are our events for the last two years we had over 80 bloggers and we made a huge difference.
