Nestle Family Happy New School Year Back to School Giveaway



The Crazy House Kids are back in school for a new year and millions of other children around the globe are getting ready to do the same.



  To kick off the new year, the NESTLÉ Family has a campaign to help promote Reading is Fundamental!!!  RIF is the oldest and largest children's and family nonprofit literacy organization in the United States. All RIF programs combine three essential elements to foster children's literacy: reading motivation, family and community involvement, and the excitement of choosing free books to keep. I had the honor of spending several years volunteering in a preschool that participates in the RIF program and it was such a delight seeing the kids faces when they got to choose a new book to take home and keep!! 




As a proud partner of RIF, NESTLÉ has distributed millions of books to elementary school children across the country that are associated with the NESTLÉ Adopt-A-School program. The books donated are designed to not only encourage literacy, but are specifically focused on teaching kids about the importance of nutrition, health and wellness.

I am so excited that I am able to participate in this great program!!  NESTLÉ has made it possible for me to receive $50 worth of RIF books to distribute to a school here in my area!  Check back here in a couple weeks to see our post for when we make the donation!!!

In addition to the RIF partnership, NESTLÉ is hosting an awesome Happy New School Year Sweepstakes!!!!!  The winner of the sweepstakes will win a grand prize of $5,000 worth of back-to-school essentials plus a $2,000 NESTLÉ Literacy Grant for your school. There will also be daily prizes from Crayola!!!  Sweepstakes ends on October 15th, 2010.





NESTLÉ  is also offering a great Back to School giveaway right here at the Crazy House!!

One LUCKY Crazy House reader is going to win a prize pack that includes:
A $25 gift card to Walmart to help with school supplies, a NESQUIK® lunch box, product from RAISINETS® and a mix of FREE coupons from NESTLÉ® Pure Life, OVALTINE®, TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough, TOLL HOUSE Morsels, NESQUIK, COFFEE-MATE®, DRUMSTICKS® and CARNATION® BREAKFAST ESSENTIALS™

The local mining company gives away backpacks fully stocked with anything and everything that a child will need for the school year! They're awesome! I get them for my son and the grandson that live with me, but in return, I help shop for the supplies and fill the backpacks!

I don't have little ones anymore, but a kid in college. This year he's going out of state to FL. we live in NM. Lots of picking and getting the car ready.
The worst part is getting myself ready, separation anxiety. He's the youngest, my baby.

I took my daughter shopping for school clothes--not my favorite thing to do. My son is playing football for the first time this year, and we are still trying to figure out what needs to be done. The kids start school after Labor Day. We will fill their backpack(s) the night before and make sure they are ready to go.
