Have you ever wanted to make a difference, but you didn't know how? Well, I'm here to tell you how a simple post can make a huge difference in classrooms across the country.

Weeks ago, I began working with Collective Bias and Elmer's Glue on a campaign called Bag It Forward. If you've been paying attention to my sidebar, you may have noticed a button showcasing school supplies purchased from Wal-Mart as well. There is a great reason for all of this effort. Want to know how you can help?

  1. Keonte--Thank you SO much for helping to spread the word about Bag It Forward and the contest! Don't forget to leave a comment with your link on so I can enter you in the contest on my site. Even if you don't personally need a computer, I'm sure you know a deserving family that does!

  2. @Candace
    This requires no effort at all. I can't figure out why anyone would NOT want to participate. Anything for children and education.

  3. I think people miss the fact that they are doing so much more than earning the $10 donation--they are inspiring others to think about their blogs as a way to build a better world and to consider some of the important causes they can support!

    Thank you again!
