I know many of us are using the sales and coupons that I have been sharing during the Back to School Deals posts to get the best prices on school supplies this year.
Unfortunately there are some kids who won’t have the necessary school supplies for a successful school year without the kindness and generosity of others.
Several years ago I had the opportunity to give children who had grown up just like I did backpacks filled with school supplies, snacks and love!
I wrote this article after that experience which changed my heart forever!
This year Liberty Family Outreach is giving out 1500 backpacks during the annual Summerfest event!
“Your mission – if you choose to accept it – is to give a child the proper tools to start the school year off right! It only takes $10 to fill a backpack with school supplies.”
We are talking about 1500 kids being given the chance at a successful new school year because people like us took $10 of the money we’ve saved this year to help another get ahead in life!
I don’t know about you, but that sounds pretty awesome to me!!
There are lots of people like the ones that make up the Liberty Family Outreach group that do what they can for the kids who would otherwise go without and now is your chance to join them in this huge endeavor.
You can find all of the current Back to School Deals on school supplies which I listed here this week to help you save.
I would ask that if you have saved $10 this year and can spare it, would you consider helping me to fill one of these backpacks?
They are still accepting school supply financial donations through Sunday, July 27th, so there is still plenty of time to join me!
*Saving Dollars and Sense Tip: This is a great time to show your kids how to have a compassionate heart and bless others with your abundance. We always picked up the FREE or almost free supplies to donate each year and my kids loved it.
