All across America families are either already in the first week or two of back to school, or they are enjoying every last second of their August vacation and anxiously awaiting the 1st day of school at the end of the month. We have had an incredibly busy but fun summer here in Texas. One of my grandchildren will be starting Pre-K this week and my other grandchild will be starting 2nd grade next week.
Preparing for back to school seems to take on a life of it's own when you combine all of the school supply shopping along with the clothing shopping. One of my grandkids will be wearing uniforms and the other will still be allowed to wear his regular clothes.
One of the common denominators on both of their school supply lists was a box of Kleenex brand tissues. Kleenex is always innovative and providing the best in comfort and care for our little ones. Kleenex Every Day Tissues are now are made with Sneeze Shield, which is thicker and more absorbent and helps keep the wet, yuckiness on the tissue instead of on their hands. They are also now made in portable, convenient packages which you can easily toss into their backpack. Having a little grandson in 2nd grade who seems to always have some reason to keep something yucky off of his hands, this is a lifesaver that they make backpack sized ones!!
I was amazed to find out that Kleenex is the only tissue company that participates in the Box Tops For Education program! So many of my friends were instantly on board about buying the Kleenex brand and excited about using the box tops for their schools. To date Kleenex has donated $13 Million dollars to schools through the Box Tops For Education program.
Kleenex has also teamed up with TeachersLists.com in a Nationwide contest for schools to enter to win 250,000 E Box Tops for the school of their choice. The winners will be announced tomorrow!!
We will definitely be buying the required boxes of Kleenex, and I would bet probably a few more to take to their schools since germs seem to fly around in the fall after school starts. The box tops can be found on Kleenex 160 count, 210 count every day tissue and the Kleenex brand 112 count Anti Viral Tissue.
Here's wishing everyone a Safe, Happy, and Healthy 2013-2014 School Year!!
In the upcoming weeks I will be choosing a local school district to receive a generous donation of 10 boxes of Kleenex Brand Tissues!
