Help Raise $10K for Adopt-A-Classroom with Elmer's Virtual Bag it Forward

I wrote about Elmer's Bag It Forward project the other day and mentioned that there would be an opportunity for everyone to participate. Here are the details about how you can help Elmer's raise up to $10K for Adopt-A-Classroom by participating in a simple blog meme. The Virtual Bag It Forward lets bloggers "gift" others with the virtual bag of school supplies, shown below:



For each post written about these virtual school supply "gifts," Elmer's will donate $10 to Adopt-A-Classroom, up to a maximum of $10,000 through August 12, 2010.

It's easy to join in:

  • Participate in the Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward and by giving away a virtual bag of school supplies and creating a blog post with specific rules described below.

  • Elmer’s will donate up to $10,000 to Adopt-A-Classroom.

  • You can give as many virtual bags as you want.

  • The Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward will officially begin at 12 AM EST on July 22, 2010 and end at 12 PM EST on August 12, 2010. Blog posts submitted to us before or after that time period will not be counted.

  • The blog post link has to be submitted in the comment section below for your participation to be counted.

  • In addition copy and paste the following text into your blog post:


ELMER’S VIRTUAL BAG IT FORWARD RULES
  • Copy and paste these rules into your blog post.

  • Create a blog post giving a “virtual bag of school supplies” to other bloggers or write about your Back to School shopping trip at Walmart.

  • Link back to the person who gave you a bag of school supplies.

  • Let each person you are giving a virtual bag of school supplies know you have given them a bag.

  • Leave your link in the Elmer’s Virtual Bag It Forward comment section. You can also find the official rules of this virtual #bagitforward program there.

  • Elmer’s is donating $10 for each blog participating in the Virtual Bag It Forward Donation to Adopt-A-Classroom (up to total of $10,000 for blog posts written by August 12, 2010).

  • Please note that only one blog post per blog url will count towards the donation.



  • I am hoping all of my readers will consider participating in the Virtual Bag It Forward since it is such a quick and easy way to donate to a good cause. Consider yourself bagged! Please spread the word so we can earn some much-needed money for underserved classrooms this back-to-school season!
