Box Tops for Education are a great way for you to earn money for schools. The only thing you have to do is clip them off of whatever you buy that has them before you toss or recycle the wrapping. This time of year there are many products that have two or more Box Tops on each package.
Each Box Top turned in is worth 10 cents. That means that for every 10 box tops you turn in to your child's school, that school earns a dollar. Right now my girls both attend the same school and there are over 1000 students. That means if every student brings in 10 Box Tops a month, that is $1000 per month for the school. Our house easily gets more than 10 box tops a month.
Over the summer we were able to collect 500 Box Tops thanks to friends and family without students who passed theirs along to us. What does 500 Box Tops look like?
This is $50 ($25 for each of my girls) for our school that could have easily been thrown out with the trash. Think how much money that would be if each child had saved 250 box tops over the summer. At $25 for each of 1000 students it would be $25,000 for just our school just over one summer!
My challenge to you is to save all Box Tops you find. Ask family and friends without children in school to help. Turn them in on October 1, 2012 and report back on how many you were able to collect. Don't have kids in school and don't know any? Just drop them off to the school yourself, they would love to have them.
