Almost one week ago today I posted about a poor school in Gary that collects Boxtops for Education. My thinking behind this post was simple. Collect some boxtops for Mama Chep's school, her class can win the competition and get a healthy breakfast. (It is my understanding that the little money this school does raise supports the before school breakfast program.) I thought that I may get a few people involved.
It is amazing how the word about this spread.
It started with Cheryl. A kind and WONDERFUL person who lives in the UK and was not able to "play along" BUT offered her support in the way of passing the word. And my oh my did it.
Blogzilla poured out her soul to all of us and then plugged the program. She even found a way to include all of those that don't use convenience foods. She is awesome and my mother concurrs. OH yeah and she will probably kick my BUTT at the competition!
Me Struss wrote an article for the 65th Crayon and also placed a link to my original post. This was the first time I stumbled across Me Strauss' website and I was thoroughly impressed! I believe I will be visiting more often! She also has posts on Me Liz on Biz and on her other site successful-blog.com. I honestly don't know how she does it! That's a lot of site to keep up! But Mama Chep and I appreciate the exposure.
I also stumbled across this random page. Not sure how I ended up on Random Chaos but I did and I am grateful for the exposure.
I have not yet been to the post office box yet - but when I get my first installment I will be sure to post all about it!
Thanks again to all those that linked - and thanks to those that have decided to save!
