As you know, I was invited by General Mills to attend the Box Top University 2011. It was an amazing experience and you can read about any of my Box Top Posts HERE.
I thought it would be fun to kick of my Box Top for Education Series with BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION FACTS. I was amazed that a lot of people are still unaware of this program and I would love to share this info to get more Mom’s and Dad’s involved.
Even if you don’t have any little ones in school, you still can participate in this AMAZING program and clip Box Tops. Get with me if you have no one to Donate your Box Tops to, we can give you some ideas and help you find a wonderful school that you can adopt .

About Box Tops for Education
Box Tops for Education offers parents and kids easy, everyday ways to earn cash for their school . The program began in 1996, as more and more schools struggled to make ends meet. Each year enrolled schools receive a program kit to help them build their own comprehensive fundraising campaign. Most schools designate a program coordinator to develop ways to encourage students, parents, school staff and community members to clip Box Tops from participating products and bring them to school.
After the collected Box Tops are sent in to General Mills, the school receives a check, equivalent to 10 cents for every Box Top redeemed. Schools can earn up to $60,000 per year, up to $20,000 respectively from the Clip, Marketplace, and Reading Room program components, to spend on anything they choose. Thousands of schools have used the cash from Box Tops for Education to purchase items such as computers and computer software, library books, art supplies and playground equipment. Support your kids’ schools today at BTFE.
