Back To School With Carolina Pad: A Review and Giveaway!
It's that time again; time to start hauling out those back-to-school checklists that you received from your children's schools detailing all the things you need to buy for the first day of school.
When it comes to notebook and stationary products, I hope you will seek out the products from Carolina Pad Company!
The ones that I am reviewing are from the Dreamsicle Collection, designed by JACKIE to benefit Girls On The Run International. This collection includes such items as a 3-subject notebook, a ribbon tie journal,a binder with tabs, and a composition book.
The fact that the purchase of products from this collection support Girls On The Run International makes them so much more attractive in my opinion. Girls on the Run is a 501(c)3 positive youth development program which combines an interactive curriculum and running to inspire self-respect and healthy lifestyles in pre-teen girls. Their core curriculum addresses many aspects of girls’ development - their physical, emotional, mental and social well-being. Lessons provide girls with the tools to make positive decisions and to avoid risky adolescent behaviors,
You can buy the Dreamsicle line at such stores as CVS and Staples. In addition Carolina Pad has other cool collections to check out as well!
