Each year 1 in 50 US children are homeless. The Company Store just launched a program to give back. In celebration of their 100th anniversary, the Company Store is launching their Kids'?? Design Contest, a program geared at inspiring creativity while supporting art education and charitable work among America's youth. Under this initiative, The Company Store will accept original artwork from children and the winning piece will be transformed into a comforter print for their ongoing Buy One, Give One Comforter Donation Program, in which The Company Store donates a new comforter to a homeless child for every comforter sold.
We're happy to keep the kids busy one afternoon with this project and to help raise awareness that homelessness impacts 1.5 million US children each year. The contest is open to kids 12 an under.
Submissions will be accepted on the Facebook page for Company Kids (Facebook.com/CompanyKids), the children'??s division of The Company Store. Voting will be open to the general public beginning March 28th through April 22nd. Now if we can only get Company Kids to stop sending so many catalogs (we call and call to get off the list...)--but that's the next campaign.
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We will be getting a free backpack which will be donated to BabyBuggy.org
