My kiddos came home from school today with this wonderful flyer in their folders and i just had to share it with all of you that read my little old blog.
Apparently, Borders Bookstores are giving schools gift cards worth $15.
How you may ask?!?!?!
Well....here is what the flyer says...and if you don't believe me, check out the Associated Press link here!
"The much discussed documentary "Waiting for Superman," which offers a harsh portrait of the country's public schools, has inspired a promotional collaboration among the Borders Group superstore chain, an education fundraiser and the publisher of the movie's companion book.
On Dec. 4 and Dec. 5, any Borders customer making an in-store purchase, whether of a book or a bagel or a latter, will receive a $15 gift card to donate to a public school of choice through DonorsChoose.org, an Internet-based charity.
Anyone purchasing the book "Waiting for 'Superman': How We Can Save America's Failing Public Schools" will receive a second $15 card. The companion text was published by PublicAffairs, part of the Perseus Books Group, which along with Borders and DonorsChoose.org announced the campaign Sunday."
How amazing is that?!!?! Pull into a Borders Bookstore, run in to grab a chai tea latte and get $15 for the school of your choice. Seriously! That is wonderful! I am so there...and there are actually two stores in big town, so I may be making two stops!
So, if you have kiddos in school, or grand kids (momma!) or great grand kids (hint hint mims!), run into town on Dec. 4 or Dec. 5 and buy yourself a little sumpin sumpin! It will change a child's life!
Thanks for checking out my blog today. So glad you did...and don't forget to go get a magazine or something at Borders this weekend!
