Every year we get involved in back to school programs. I feel that we’re so fortunate to be able to choose a private school for our son and buy the supplies needed, and that we should pay it forward by helping others!
That’s why I was so excited to have been invited by Aldi to participate in this great campaign, where influencers will use their voice to do good and share back to school supplies, through Aldi’s generosity, with children who need them!
I asked my son to be involved and took him shopping. He chose all the items and proudly packed them to be sent to the charity we chose to donate them to! We chose to buy the more expensive items such as backpacks and an insulated lunch box, which are usually a burden for parents on a tight budget, along with usual smaller items.
My son eagerly packed the backpack and helped us get it ready for donation! We chose a local charity: “Angels of God” – which represents a huge outreach for families and children in our area! Their back to school drive has helped hundreds of children! We’re so happy to be a part of it and use Aldi’s generous supply donation to put a smile on a child’s face!
The experience not only taught my son we need to give back and help others, but also taught him about humility and opened his eyes to the fact that not all children can go to stores and choose the back to school items they desire, without worrying about the price tag – something he does every year.
I wanted to thank Aldi for allowing us to be a part of such a beautiful initiative and look forward to collaborating in the near future, because I am always here to support Brands who take the initiative to give back to the community they serve!
Aldi was already a brand I loved and respected, but this initiative made me appreciate them even more!
Have you done any back to school donations? Are you finished back to school shopping? If not, there’s still time to Shop at your local Aldi’s Store!
