More than 10 years post high-school, I still love back-to-school shopping. Admittedly, I was a terrible student (shame). But every summer around this time, I would start getting excited. New year, fresh start. Big dreams of applying myself, getting good grades, rekindling friendships, and eating chocolate-covered rice crispy bars for lunch. Friends and chocolate definitely happened.
Oh yeah. And I liked to see how long I could go without wearing the same thing twice. This was when ALL of my summer babysitting dollars were spent on clothes. Such good times, those were.
I like to think I've gained some wisdom and maturity since 1998. At least enough to recognize a winning opportunity when I see one. Even though it decreases my odds (that's math), I have to share this giveaway with you:
TOMS and Out of Print have teamed up for a back-to-school sweepstakes! I can't think of a more perfect t-shirt + shoe union. Both of these companies excel in their philanthropic efforts through product sales and community involvement.
For every pair of TOMS, another pair is provided for a person in need. Their giving spans over 50 countries.
For every t-shirt, Out of Print donates a book to an underprivileged community through their partnership with Books for Africa. (Me, wearing Wuthering Heights.)
It's super easy to enter. And while you're there, shop around. It's like back-to-school shopping X2.
