When we turn on the news or read the newspaper all we hear these days is budget cuts, budget cuts and more budget cuts! This economy has been absolutely terrible for the past few years and one of the industries being hit the hardest is our nation's school systems. Every time I turn around I hear about more programs being cut at our local schools. This really upsets me and saddens me because our kids are the future of this country and they need to have a great education!
Today I would like to tell you about the My Coke rewards for schools program where you collect Coke caps from 15 different Coke brands and submit those points found on the caps online at the My Coke Rewards web site. Once you have submitted your reward points you can donate them to your local schools which they can cash them in to receive school supplies, art supplies and gym equipment. Even the smallest donation in points can greatly help our local schools which in turns helps our kids!
If you are a school employee or with any of your child's school groups you can set up an account on behalf of your child's school so that all of us here in the community can donate our Coke reward points to the school.
From July 13th through September 30th, 2011 Sprite is giving away 25 playgrounds, worth $25,000 to schools and they are giving consumers who enter any code from Sprite or Sprite Zero beverages an entry into the sweepstakes to help their school win. Any new school who registers will be eligible to win this fabulous giveaway!
Please go to the My Coke Rewards web site TODAY and register for a free account. Collect your Coke Rewards caps and enter in the codes to receive points which you can donate to your local school. If we all pitch together we can ensure that our children get the items and equipment that they need to have to ensure their strong educational future. As parents and community members, we can do it!
