i’ve had so much fun the last few weeks partnering with Target on their back-to-school giving campaign for the year. i’m sure you’ve already heard of all the good they are doing with Yoobi to donate to the Kids In Need Foundation to provide up to $6.5 million of backpacks and school supplies (that’s more than 700,000 backpacks) to kids across the country for the 2017-2018 school year. i know we can all agree that feeling supported at any age in life goes a long way, but especially when you’re little and about to embark on one of the most important adventures of your life– your education. it feels extra near and dear to my heart this year since we’ll be sending both eleanor and samson off into their respective classrooms this fall for kindergarten and first grade and as a mother, you just cross all your fingers and toes that you’ve prepped them with enough love and encouragement and tools to navigate it all the best they can, and that it will be a positive and incredible experience for everyone. i was asked to be a part of this back-to-school prep for success video for Target’s Facebook page, and after we filmed it, we wandered through all the school supplies to share a few of our favorites with you! below are some photos…
yep, 19 notebooks and an apple on top of my head. i didn’t think i could do it, but somehow, it happened and no notebook, apple or person was harmed!
considering we have a big “space” theme in our house over here, loved seeing it highlighted in a number of the backpacks, notebooks and other supplies. my kids are going to be so stoked.
and i wanted to share this darling shirt from Target’s Cat & Jack kids clothing line, because i loved the messaging of learning, having fun and being kind on the back of the t-shirt.
holding one of the 700,000 Cat & Jack and Yoobi backpacks you can help donate through september 9th to the Kids In Need Foundation by liking or sharing Target’s Prep for Success video! felt especially awesome being surrounded by all the great words of encouragement written on the backs of the backpacks surrounding me.
i am a sucker for the adhesive reusable patches by Cat & Jack to put on backpacks. had to show a few of my favorites.
and this wonder woman backpack, of course. :)
with the new school year finally here, what words of encouragement or support would you share with someone gearing up to begin school for the very first time or about to go back to school once again? i would love it if you shared them in the comments so we can all have a look and gather them together to pass onto those around us in the next few weeks!
happy back to school season, guys! and thank you to Target for sponsoring this blog post.
