“WEMAKE7 was not compensated for this post, we did however receive product and a gift card to purchase supplies to fill a backpack to donate to a local child or organization.”
It’s hard to believe that school is just around the corner but I’m pretty excited this year because I was selected to participate in a Giving Back Packs Event. I participated in one a few years ago and loved it. I consider my family less fortunate than others but ask anyone that knows me I’m the first to lend a hand or donate when I can so this really hits close to home for me. To participate in this with my family really warms my heart.
We were sent a gift card to purchase supplies so we decided to shop our local Walmart and Dollar Tree to get as much as we could. When I asked my kiddos what organization or if they knew who they think would best benefit from a new back pack and supplies it was decided it would go to an older kiddo that was going through a tough time.
My daughters and I had such a wonderful time shopping together and choosing what we thought would benefit the child the most for school. When we got home we placed everything on the table and agreed we had a pretty good shopping trip.
Along with the gift card we were sent a backpack to put the supplies in and Wonderful Pistachios. The tube packs are perfect for on-the-go and come in yummy flavors like Roasted & Salted, Sweet Chili and Salt & Pepper. The pre-portioned packs also make packing lunch really simple! They are a healthy and nutritious snack to get your kiddo through the day!
We stuffed all the school supplies and as much pistachios in the backpack as we could and couldn’t wait to surprise the kiddo with it. It always feels good to help others and sometimes there is just so much going wrong and bad in the world that acts like this really keep me hopeful.
A huge thanks to Wonderful Pistachios for sponsoring this event this year and Real Advice Gal for choosing our family to participate! 😉
