Making A Difference - Bag It Forward

As a future teacher I am head over heels for school supplies. 
Tim thinks I'm a total dork because I get so excited to walk into Wal-Mart and spend at least 20 minutes in the school supply section. I love to fill my basket with fresh yellow pencils, notebook paper, markers, and index cards. A lot of schools and students are unable to afford their own school supplies. 

Elmer's will be donating up $10,000 to Adopt a Classroom
They are donating $10 for every blog post written about the Virtual Bag It Forward.
It's something simple that will make a big difference. 

I am bagging it forward. Will you??
Here are the official rules: 


  • Copy and paste these rules into your blog post or Facebook note.
  • Create a post giving a “virtual bag of school supplies” to other bloggers or write about your Back to School shopping trip at Walmart.
  • Link back to the person who gave you a bag of school supplies.
  • Let each person you are giving a virtual bag of school supplies know you have given them a bag.
  • Leave your link in the Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward comment section. You can also find the official rules of this virtual #bagitforward program there.
  • Elmer’s is donating $10 for each blog participating in the Virtual Bag It Forward Donation to Adopt-A-Classroom (up to total of $10,000 for blog posts written by September 10,2010).
  • Please note that only one blog post per blog url will count towards the donation.
