We’re home for a few weeks before we head off on another adventure so I’m making use of the time to prepare for back to school! And this year we have the opportunity to purposefully shop through Fred Meyer’s “Support Your Schools” program. Our school district earns $1 from Fred Meyer and $1 from each participating brand when customer’s like us buy Back To School clothes and shoes!
Fred Meyer has committed to donating $2.6 million each year – up to $650,000 each quarter – to the local schools, community organizations and nonprofits chosen by their customers.
Two of the brands at our local Fred Meyer that support the program are Justify (the top featured in these photos) and Adidas (the shoes). Basically we shop as we normally would and have the opportunity to serve our community at the same time. Bonus – both brands offer great travel styles for kids (a priority in our family).
I mentioned in one of my recent Instagram posts that we often get asked if we ‘world school’ or home school our kids because we travel so much. The answer is no – we’re very lucky to live in an AMAZING public school district! My daughters LOVE the classroom setting and we just balance out our trips with their schedule. Education is incredibly important in our family and I know that I could never serve them nearly as well as their brilliant teachers (thank you!!!). And they deserve the support.
Plus, school shopping is fun!!! Anyone remember being SO excited about that brand new trapper keeper and Lisa Frank peachy? They may have traded in three-ring binders for iPads but still…somethings never change.
I’ll also add…we LOVE Adidas shoes because they go with everything – pants, shorts, skirts, dresses, you name it. We want simple and efficient. Right, mamas?
Because I know you’ll be shopping anyways, I teamed up with Fred Meyer to giveaway a $100 gift card! Head over to Instagram to enter!
