Bag it Forward with Elmer's and Adopt-A-Clasroom Program

I never was or is a big fan of meme {no explanation needed here} and you won't catch me cold doing one too. But for once, I'm doing one right now. Why? It's for a good cause!

And though I'm not a Walmart Shopper, I like that they've partnered with Elmer's to help support classrooms across America and Elmer's being one of the products we personally use at home, this meme became an instant winner on my list!
"We know how much our public schools need our support. My daughter is now in Grade I and like last school year, we have to buy supplies NOT just for her but additional extras for her classroom to help out her teacher and her classroom as well."

 Here's a way to help out MORE. You'll raise $10 for every blogpost or note in Facebook you write and Elmer's will donate up to $10,000 to Adopt-A-Classroom when you participate through Elmer's Virtual Bag it Forward.
HOW CAN YOU JOIN? It’s easy. -- {copy here} --
