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:
