How Tom’s of Maine Fits into Our Back to School Routine
We are Tom’s of Maine Goodness Circle Ambassadors. All views expressed are that of our own.
The back to school season is officially in full swing. While my three kids have everything they could possibly need to start the new school year off right, some kids do not have that advantage. With parents struggling to make ends meet, sometimes buying items like backpacks, pencils, and notebooks are enough to bust a budget. As a former educator, I have seen children come to school dirty, hungry and without the supplies they need for a successful school year.
That is why I 100% support programs like Tom’s of Maine Backpacks Full of Good. The new initiative involves the folks at Tom’s of Maine partnering up with The Kids in Need Foundation (KINF) to donate 10,000 backpacks full of good. Each durable backpack will include items like pencils, glue sticks, crayons and samples of Tom’s of Maine Silly Strawberry™ Anticavity Children’s Toothpaste to help keep their smiles naturally bright. Backpacks will go to children who are most in need nationwide.
Want to be a part of this amazing mission? Now through August 19, 2018, you can visit https://www.tomsofmaine.com/backtoschool to submit a personalized “Good Luck
Letter” which will be included inside the backpack, along with the much-needed supplies.
Did you know that Backpacks for Good is just one example of Tom’s of Maine commitment to supporting communities? Every year, Tom’s of Maine gives 10% of its profits back to helping people
and the planet. Plus, employees are encouraged to give 5% of paid time to volunteer. Super cool stuff going on over there!
This mission is really near and dear to me because it reminds me of the first little boy that broke my heart when he came to school every day with no snacks and dirty clothes. I will never forget this child, and can only hope he is doing great things 13 years later. Please consider submitting a personalized letter for a child in need.
I am thankful every day that our family is fortunate enough to be able to buy school supplies for our children and get them everything they need for a successful school year.
For our family, Tom’s of Maine is an essential part of our back to school routine.
Now that my oldest daughter is more aware of her personal hygiene, we have been flying through things like Tom’s of Maine deodorant and toothpaste products. She might be using them a little too liberally, but I am at least thankful we can easily replenish.
I love Tom’s of Maine Whole Care Peppermint toothpaste and Silly Strawberry Anticavity Fluoride toothpaste. With no artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, or animal ingredients/testing it is a winner in our book. We have been a Tom’s of Maine oral care family for the past 3 years now and we haven’t turned back! From toothbrushes and toothpaste to floss; they have it all and we LOVE it!
As far as the long-lasting deodorant goes, this is the only brand I allow my daughter to use on her sensitive skin. It works great and will make the perfect addition to her locker and gym bag. We also love Tom’s of Maine Antiplaque floss which is thick and strong enough for little fingers to easily floss. The Whole Care Mouthwash is my favorite and helps me to start my day off with a fresh mouth.
I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for back school. How about you–are you ready? Will Tom’s of Maine products be part of your back to school routine?
Join us August 14th for the Tom’s of Maine Twitter Party from 7-8 pm est. There will be more details coming soon! Hope to tweet you there!
