Help donate school supplies to classrooms with Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward!

For me, doing the back to school shopping just started last year and I can tell that it will become more and more of a larger chore as my girls get older. I have to say though that though I am sometimes amazed at the number of supplies that one can find, Walmart makes it easy and their prices are great! Being a member of Collective Bias I was excited to find that they were working with Elmer’s to help Adopt-A-Classroom make a difference in classrooms across the country by donating up to $10,000 in school supplies!

How can you help?
It’s easy to join in the Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward – all you have to do is write a post on your blog to donate a virtual bag of school supplies. For every post written before 12pm EST on August 12, 2010, Elmer’s will donate $10 to Adopt-A-Classroom, up to $10,000. You can give as many virtual bags as you want!


  • Copy and paste these rules into your blog post.
  • Create a blog 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 August 12, 2010).
  • Please note that only one blog post per blog url will count towards the donation.

So I was tagged in this by Chris S. of Dad of Divas [Link] and I’m passing this forward to Carol of NYCityMama [Link], Jessica of Momma’s gone City [Link], Isabel of Alphamom [Link], Stephanie of Dial M for Minky {Moo} [Link]. I hope you will all join in to help #bagitforward with Elmer’s. And please, if you’re reading this and have a blog – join in as well!

  1. Isn't it such a shameful thing that schools are so underfunded that we need a charity like “Adopt-a-Classroom”! Good on you for taking the time to spread the word and make a difference!!

    If you'd like to donate another post to a good cause, from Aug 6th, when you GIVE a blog post describing why you are (or would like to be) a clean water Change Agent, you'll be eligible for a chance to join a P&G Children's Safe Drinking Water Program expedition. Plus you could win $15,000 for your favorite charity that's working in the front lines of the global water crisis. Rally your readers to vote for you and share your story. Each time they do, P&G will donate a day's worth of clean drinking water (2L) to a person in need in a developing country!
