Rentals challenged some bloggers to a pay it forward opportunity. Bloggers were
selected to purchase as many school supplies as they could with $25 and give
the much needed supplies to a needy child.
Imagine my surprise when I received the email I was chosen to
participate n this awesome opportunity. Living in Detroit, the largest entity
to file for Federal Bankruptcy protection I am no stranger to needy children.
for school supplies but to also give me the name of someone he felt would
really benefit from the school supplies. He told me of a classmate of his who
never had school supplies of his own. The student had several siblings and both
of his parents were out of work. He would be attending the 8th grade
in the fall along with my youngest son.
stores many of which were already tooting their horns about their fabulous back
to school sales.
surprised to find Back Packs/Book bags for only $12. We were careful to
purchase only the items with fantastic sales and leave the pricier items, we
were sure the other stores would beat those prices. Our next stop was the
Dollar Tree we purchased a calculator and a few other items before going to our
final store, Target. At Target we were
able to purchase the last items on our list and finally sit down for a bite to
eat from our world wind 3 store shopping spree.
everything purchased and I have to say I was pretty impressed with me and my sons
“frugal shopping skills.”
We both thoroughly enjoyed our “pay it forward adventure.” The feeling you get when you help others is so rewarding. My son stated he never knew he could have so much fun shopping for someone else. Not only were we able to help someone less fortunate than ourselves we were changed. Changed for the better. We spent time together looking for the best deals and really trying to make sure we anticipated the needs of someone else. I would like to Thank the sponsor for this awesome opportunity.
