Educar es como intentar mantener 35 corchos bajo el agua al mismo tiempo – Mark Twain
Educating is like trying to hold 35 corks under water at the same time – Mark Twain
I spent half my childhood in Los Angeles area and then in a small rural school system in Southeast Louisiana. Both had one common denominator – budget restrictions. I suppose all schools have to balance their needs and wants, but it seems like our small community did a great job of finding ways to make sure the “needs” section was always taken care of.
Education was always a large part of my life. My mother was born and raised in Guatamala where education was not as readily accessible as it is in the U.S. My parents always reinforced the importance of education and both my kids know the best way to have a proper education is by working hard and becoming involved. What we need súper inspiración (super inspiration), so whether it’s organizing a PTA teacher’s luncheon, helping out at cheer practice or volunteering at an honor society car wash, parents and children need to get involved. But finding time can be challenging for some families.
One way we can become more involved and give back is by participating in the Campbell’s Labels for Education® Program. The Campbell’s Labels for Education Program Labels is a fun and easy program where families and members of the community can work together to items their local school needs. P.E Equipment, computers or new books, schools can use the labels to earn stuff for your school.
It’s easy! By collecting UPCs and beverage/sauce caps from over 2,500 Campbell’s participating products and supplementing earnings through the eLabels for Education℠ program, your school earns points that can be redeemed through the Campbell’s Labels for Education Program online catalog.
Starting today, August 3rd Campbell’s Labels for Education Program is offering a Grand Stand for Schools Sweepstakes. They are giving away un millón dólares (1 Million Dollars)! One hundred (100) Grand Prizes will be awarded at the end of the Sweepstakes which ends 10/09/15.

To make your grocery shopping trip a little easier, I created a shopping list printable which several Campbell’s participating products for easy accessibility. Use the blank lines for items not mentioned and print several for your friends. Want to get the kids involved? Print a copy, use a fridge magnet and leave directly on the fridge. Your kids can help remind you of items that need to be replenished next week.
