Have you heard about the Scotties Ready, Set, School Video Campaign? This post is sponsored by Scotties.
I don't know about you mama's, but I love the back-to-school season! I enjoy shopping for school clothes and new supplies because it means a fresh start and a new year for the kids. I love watching them learn and grow each year.
In celebration of a new school year, I wanted to share some awesome news from Scotties Facial Tissues. This month they partnered with Kids In Need Foundation to help inspire children to be prepared for the new school year and help them do their best.
According to KINF, students who go without the school supplies they need struggle with self-esteem and perform worse in school than students with adequate supplies. How sad is that? It's crazy to think that something as simple as school supplies can hurt a child's education and student experience, but it's true.
Thankfully Scotties wants to change that! They know it’s the little things in life that matter. Every child, no matter what their circumstances, should have the supplies they need to help them be engaged in learning and I couldn't agree more. Pencils, crayons, and paper may seem inconsequential to the learning process, but for a child in need, they can make a world of difference.
Scotties Ready, Set, School Video Campaign
To help Scotties spread this message I asked my kiddos to help me by making a video because for every video created and shared on social media (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook) using the hashtag #ReadySetSchool, a backpack filled with school supplies will be donated to a kid in need (up to 1,400 backpacks total) by Scotties.
I asked: “If you could put one thing in a backpack and then give it to a kid who needed help getting through the school day, what would that one thing be and why?”
You can view their answers below. I did not help them answer this, they came up with these on their own, and I was impressed.
After you watch, why don't you help out by making your own video! I want to see Scotties hit 1,400 videos because they will surprise three schools with backpacks full of school supplies!!! How cool would that be?
