For those of you who don’t already know, I sort of like Box Tops for Education. My little obsession started last year after Tim and I attended 4K Orientation. We learned that the 4K class was having a special contest to see which class could turn in the most Box Tops at the beginning of school. As soon as we got home, I started contacting EVERYONE that I could think of that would be willing to collect Box Tops for Carter. Within a few weeks I had people sending them to us. Not too long after, Pick N Save had a Bonus Box Top Promotion (they run these every few months), and before I knew it I had over 2000 box tops….and my basement looked like this.
By the time that Back to School time arrived, Carter and I had collected over 4000 box tops. He was pretty excited to bring them into school, and his class ended up winning the Back to School Contest….by a landslide!
I love the Box Tops for Education so much, that I asked to be one of the coordinators for the next school year. I was so excited when I found out that I could be a coordinator, and in fact they let me start a little early so I could attend Box Tops University in Chicago last Friday. I had such a blast! I learned a lot about sending Box Tops in, different contests that other coordinators have done in the past, and how to get more people involved in our community. And I was shocked when the person in charge of the Facebook account for Box Tops for Education actually recognized me when I walked past. Apparently I must post on the page a lot more often than other people. 🙂
And one of the best things about Box Tops University is the AWESOME goodie bag everyone received, not to mention the 100 Bonus Box Tops we received for attending.
Today I picked up my first batch of Box Tops from school to count. I’m in charge of counting and shipping out all of the Box Tops for the month of April. I only had 166 to count, but it was thrilling none the less. I’m sure when I go back next week there will be hundreds waiting for me.
My name is Lisa, and it’s been 2 hours since I clipped my last Box Top.
