We are actually participating in an amazing opportunity to Bag It Forward. What does that mean? It means that I find the Elmer's school supply list stand in our local Walmart, purchase the items on the list and give it to someone else who can use the school supplies for the new school year. I think everyone should do this, especially because you can get school supplies for such great prices at Walmart. It doesn't cost much and is an easy way to really make someone's day and help them out. You can give the bag of supplies to a student, a teacher or an organization, #BagItForward. On the supply list stand you will also see info about the Elmer's 1st Day App. I'll talk about that more later on.

Elmer's 1st Day App For A Good Cause
When we found out school list on the stand, there was also an area talking about the new Elmer's 1st Day App. With the QR code, you can easily download the app onto your smartphone straight from there. We did it with out iPad and love this app. It's a great way to organize all your photos from this school year and to commemorate the 1st day of school. Plus, you can easily share them with friends and family. Take a look and try out this app! Another reason to get this app? For every photo you upload onto the app, Elmer's will donate one item to The Kids In Need Foundation (KINF).
Enter To Win
Yet another reason to check out the 1st Day App... The X-Acto Designer Series and Walmart are offering a chance to win a trip for four to Disney World!!! You can find the entry form on the 1st Day App website.
