Ready Set School With Scotties

Tonight was back to school night for my boys. We loaded up all our school supplies and headed to the school to meet their teachers. Did you know that many kids who start school do not have the necessary school supplies and that fact alone can have a far reaching impact in the life of that student?

Scotties Facial Tissues is launching a new campaign in partnership with the Kids In Need Foundation (KINF) to inspire children to be prepared for the school year to help them do their best.

Did You Know?

According to KINF, students who go without the school supplies they need struggle with self-esteem and perform worse in school than students with adequate supplies?

Scotties wants to change that! Scotties, know it’s the little things in life that matter. Every child, no matter what their circumstances, should have the supplies they need to help them be engaged in learning. Pencils, crayons and paper may seem inconsequential to the learning process, but for a child in need, they can make a world of difference.

I asked Charlie what one thing every child should have in their school bag. Check out my Instagram video to see what he had to say.

1 to 1 Promise!

This is a great opportunity to get your child(ren) involved in helping other kids, because for every video created and shared on social media (Twitter, Instagram and Facebook) using the hashtag #ReadySetSchool, a backpack filled with school supplies will be donated to a kid in need (up to 1,400 backpacks total) by Scotties.

Here’s to a happy, healthy , and hope filled school year for each and every child!
