You know I love the Champions for Kids Campaign and have been asked many times over the last few month to participate and show my readers how they can get involved as well. It really doesn’t take much to make a big difference in a little boy or girls life.
For the month of October the Champions for Kids campaign was all about how to keep your little ones healthy and what better company to team up with to keep little hands clean and healthy then Dial. this is just the perfect match!
I decided to head to Walmart to see what kind of goodies I could get for the Pre-K class at our local Elementary school. They are always struggling to get hygiene products, especially tissue, soap and hand sanitizer, so my goal was to surprise the teachers with a little trick or treat bag to keep the kids healthy this flu and cold season.
Have you ever checked the soap aisle at Walmart? Especially the aisle that has the Dial hand soap? I was pleasantly surprised on the HUGE selection of soap Dial had to offer; another thing that totally amazed me was, the soap was less than a buck. I honestly took 5 or 6 to price check, because I couldn’t believe that a 7.5oz Dial soap dispenser would be less than a Dollar. But I quickly found out that the Dial Hand Soap is on Rollback throughout the month of October; be sure to grab a few next time you are there for your kids classroom.
I grabbed a handful of soaps, for that price I would be able to donate to the teachers with enough to get them through the winter month and keep little hands nice and clean in the class room. As I walked through Walmart I found a few other little things that would work well for the Pre-K class like baby wipes and hand sanitizer as well as tissues, lots of tissues and since its Halloween, I decided to put it all inside a pumpkin. I bet the teachers will love it and the kids will get the hygiene they need to stay healthy.
Our school Pre-K program has a very limited budget and a lot of times the teachers water down the soap to make it go further, so this will help tremendous with the 20 kids in the class and will go a long way, that’s for sure.
Now, did I promise too much? It is so simple to help out your kids, whether it be a donation to a local school, shelter or homeless shelter. It doesn’t take much money and effort, but it will make a world of difference in a child’s life. I decided to make a donation like this, to our local school once a month for a different age group each time, that way every student in the school will be able to benefit a little bit from our donations and effort in keeping kids healthy and happy.
What is Champions for Kids?
Champions for Kids is changing the way the world helps children. No Child should EVER go to school hungry, cold or without the resources they need to thrive. In America, 16.8 million children do, so there is a lot of work for all of us, simple people like you and I, to do. Champions for Kids is an amazing program with wonderful sponsors and Partners like Dial; they work to ensure all children have the resources they need to thrive. The goal is to mobile 20 Million people ( just like Mom’s, dad’s, grandparents, anyone we can get the word out to) by 2020 ….
Our Pre-k teachers had no idea that I was going to surprise them with a few buckets full of soap, hand sanitizer and a few other items that I was able to collect from family and friends over the last few days. They couldn’t thank me enough and where overjoyed with the donations. I so wished I would have been able to take a picture, but our new school policy is that we are not allowed to take any kind of pictures (if it’s not school related) on school property. Sad, I know, but I do understand that it is for the safety and protection of the children, I ‘m sorry for not posting our actual donation picture.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab a Halloween bucket and make a little boy or girl’s day…….What would you donate to your donation place of choice? I would love to hear it and get the chatter started…..
