Today is October 3rd and that means I CAN SPILL THE BEANS!!!! I am SO excited and honored that Ford contacted me directly to help them spread the word about their new venture! They are the very first automobile company to partner with General Mills and support the Box Tops for Education program!
FORD has partnered with General Mills to join with the Box Tops Program in supporting schools!! Starting TODAY they are launching their “Ford Drives Box Tops” Program AND sweepstakes where they will be giving away a total of 250,000 Bonus Box Tops!!
So what does this mean? There are THREE ways that you can earn Box Tops through Ford for your school.
1. Watch a video on the Ford Drives Box Tops website. (Earn 5 Box Tops PER video – 5 videos total!)
2. Request a product brochure. (Earn 10 Box Tops!)
3. Purchase a new Ford vehicle. (Earn 250 Box Tops.)
That’s it! It’s VERY simple (well, ok, maybe not buying a new Ford vehicle…). If EVERY teacher in your school, and even some of your parents watched the videos and requested a product brochure – that is a LOT of Box Tops for your school!! Don’t have a school that you donate to? Please feel free to donate your Box Tops to my husband’s 2nd grade classroom!!
