Bloggers Filling Backpacks - Ebook Fundraiser for BGCA


PhotobucketI'm so excited to invite you to to do something that can change the lives of hundreds of children! Andie from Crayon Freckles organized Bloggers Filling Backpacks, a collaboration of over 40 kid bloggers to help the Boys & Girls Clubs of America bring school supplies to children. Each blogger contributed to the Boredom Buster Backpack eBook with its 50+ kid-friendly projects. This project is part of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America Tools for Back to School campaign, which says:

Too many kids in America are falling behind in school and life before they even get started. Oftentimes, this is not due to alack of ability but to the lack of access to both basic tools, such as notebooks and pens, and to quality after-school programming that helps prepare kids for academic success and, inevitably, a great future.

Our goal is to raise $500.   So, will you make a difference?  Everyone who makes a $10 (or more) donation will get the Boredom-Buster Backpack: 50+ Activities to Keep Children Busy ebook! This ebook is filled with amazing activities contributed by over 20 bloggers that will keep your children busy, learning, and having fun.



Go to the Bloggers Filling Backpacks BGCA fundraising page and make your $10 donation for your copy of this awesome ebook! The ebook will be emailed to you after your purchase. Not only will you get tons of fun activities to do with your child, you'll help other children have the supplies they need to start school successfully! I ordered this book and it is FANTASTIC with many beautiful activities and color photos to show you step-by-step how to play and teach your child. The book is filled with activities on Art, Sensory, Math, Science, ABC Reading, Outdoor Fun, Bonus Fun Ideas, and Printables.

  1. Susan...this is wonderful...I will head over to donate (and enjoy some fresh new ideas in the e-book)...and also Tweet and post this to my Facebook. What a great idea!
    And then I will have to click on "Check Your Child's Backpack"...sounds like something every parent needs to do. I have a funny story about a Boy Scout footlocker...maybe I will share it one day on my blog. :)

    2. You are so welcome! And thanks so much for the ebook...I know I will enjoy it...I'm all about using crafts, along with picture books, to help kids build self-esteem! Just did a staff workshop, Building Literacy and Self-Esteem...One Picture Book at a Time, for our local Boys and Girls Club at their Annual Conference.
      I also grabbed the button and posted it on my blog sidebar and will mention this great cause in my next blog post!

    4. I was happy to...but I think the ebook didn't arrive in my email box...if it was sent to vivian@positiveparentalparticipation.com, that email can't take large files. My peacemakr001@q.com account can take large files. :(

  3. Hi! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about online fundraising in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about online fundraising. Keep it up! This is a good read.
    The donor base (often called a file) for higher education includes alumni, parents, friends, private foundations, and corporations. Gifts of appreciated property are important components of such efforts because the tax advantage they confer on the donor encourages larger gifts. The process of soliciting appreciated assets is called planned giving.

    It's a Capital opportunity!

    Join United States Congressman Jim Himes for a priceless personal tour of the U.S Capital Building and lunch in the Members' Dining Room. Don't miss this unique opportunity to spend time with one of Connecticut's most valued elected officials, and tour the one of America's most significant landmarks.
