I’m really excited to be part of the project “All You Couponing for Good” this month. All You Magazine has partnered with Champions for Kids during the month of March on a simple service project focused on Couponing for Good – a good cause that its. The Champion for Kids Program encourages everyday people to help needy children across the country. There goal is to mobilize millions of people to become Champions for Kids!
My goal is to use my couponing skills to increase what I can donate to the charitable organization of my choice. There are so many organizations to choose from that benefit children –it’s tough to pick just one. I decided to donate my items to the Rochester Area Neighborhood House food pantry. Once I made my decision I visited their website to find out what items they needed. No surprise here! Food items and hygiene products topped the list. They also have a birthday room that they try to keep stocked with a few toys so a child can choose a gift on their birthday. I love that idea!
I normally cut coupons on a weekly basis from the Detroit Free Press Sunday Paper inserts. I also get coupons from the internet and magazines. I keep them in an envelope in my purse. This week I looked for coupons for the items I wanted to purchase for the Neighborhood House. The better deals allow me to give a little more. Then it was off to Walmart to purchase the items. I picked up All You Magazine first and flipped through it looking for any coupons I could use. I found two that fit with what I had on my list; canned Dole pineapple and Starkist tuna. Students may find this of use as well, this can help them save money with their weekly food shops, and luckily there are student coupons for them to utilize when they need to on various other items too.
My son is going to help out with this project – I think it’s good for kids to get involved in the community. Detroit Mommies was involved in a similar project last December that benefited Gleaners Food Bank – he helped me with that too and enjoyed the experience.

You can participate too. All you have to do is use coupons or buy-one-get-one free offers then donate the extra items to a local food pantry or organization that benefits children.

How nice that they have a “Birthday room”! Aww!
I think it’s great that you got your son involved! My husband and I have included our children in so many events that contribute to the community, but still are amazed at the caring hearts growing inside them.
