NEW Digital Box Tops: An Easy Way To Encourage Kids To Give Back

This post is sponsored by General Mills, but all opinions are my own.

Every back to school season brings back the nostalgia of my own school years. There was something magical about a fresh year, clean slate and excitement filled the air. Now I’m sending my oldest son off to Kindergarten for the first time and all of the emotions are coming back. My parents always strived to teach me the importance of giving back to my school community and now I’m teaching that to my son.

An Easy Way To Encourage Kids To Give Back

One of my fondest memories about supporting my school was collecting Box Tops For Education. I know Millennial parents can definitely relate! I’d get so excited to clip my Box Tops from General Mills products and bring them into school. We’d all watch the Box Tops collection grow and it was an easy way our family to give back to the school. 
For over twenty years, Box Tops for Education has given families an easy way to earn cash for their school. There are so many heart-warming stories about schools that struggled, but with the help of Box Tops, they were able to supply teachers with everything they needed. Schools have always encouraged families to collect box tops and I plan to do the same with my son!
