Yes, I’m talking about going back to school. I am so excited about it too! Here’s why-
I’ve teamed up with Chevy and their Back to School Challenge to give one lucky, local reader a chance to win a $100 gift card for back to school supplies for their kids!
Trust me, when I say I know how much this can do for a family. When TD was just out of school in June (only last month!) I shelled out $52 for just one kid and her first grade school supplies. In the next few years I will easily be spending $100 and more when all three girls are in school. Those supplies did not count back packs or lunch boxes either.
If you are a single parent and you can’t afford to purchase the school supplies your child needs, I want to hear from you! I want to know how this $100 gift card from TMC and Chevy will make a difference in you and your kids lives. If you know of someone whose child could benefit from this gift then please nominate them here in TMC’s comment section. One special winner will get a free back to school shopping trip (with me) to purchase much-needed school supplies!
Instructions to Enter to Win-
1. You must be a D.C., Maryland or Virginia resident to enter. You can nominate a DMV resident too. Just use the comment section to do it.
2. Deadline to enter is August 6, 2012. I will pick a winner and announce it here on August 8, 2012.
On top of that I will take the winner shopping for school supplies and then we will head over to donate filled backpacks as part of the Central Union Mission “Operation Backpack 2012,” on August 9.
So, let’s get started! Let’s end the summer on a great note and start a child (or children) off on their 2012-2013 school year right!!
