The Magic of Box Tops- Making a Difference One Snip at a Time
Have you ever wondered how you could make a difference in child education? Did you know that Box Tops have been around since 1996, and have made a big difference in child education by paying 10 cents for every one Box Top collected? Alright, I’m with you that doesn’t seem like a lot, but think about it for a second. How many times do you see Box Tops on your groceries at home? For those of you who haven’t noticed I challenge you to look around your kitchen and just count how many you find. Sounds fun right? Make it a game and include your family to help you find as many Box Tops you can. I bet it will surprise you how many you have around.
OK now that you’re done counting just think if you have ten items that have Box Tops that’s $1 your school. It’s money already spent on products in your home that is providing extra money for your child’s school. What is the money used for? Money received by schools helps fund school trips, extracurricular activities, school programs, and more! Just last year in 2012 $80 million was earned through Box Tops for education. You might be thinking, “why would they give that money away?” Well Box Tops believes “every child deserves the chance to reach their full potential”, and Box Tops wants to help “create experiences to help kids grow”. Potandon supports those beliefs and give our support by featuring Box Tops on our Green Giant ®Fresh Klondike Rose ®potatoes the only fresh potatoes that feature Box Tops.
