Teaching my son to pay it forward



I have received compensation to purchase some the items, but I’m not being compensated to share my experience and all opinions are my own.

BTS Payitforward event sent us the greatest opportunity of all, get my son involved in sharing supplies and a backpack with a child in need! I jumped at the chance to shop for items together and fill the backpack with things we chose as well as finding a local charity to donate it!

Our Sponsor Campus Book Rentals, provided an amount which covered some of the items and we ensured the backpack and items would meet most needs of a child my son’s age, in 5th grade.

We shopped at local stores, looking for deals at Staples, Walmart and Dollar Days, we bought the backpack at Wallmart!

My son spent 20min choosing the items, as if they were for him! He carefully selected styles and colors and said, this is good, no don’t buy that, carefully selecting items!

We arrived home and the items filled my office floor, my son helped pack the backpack which was donated the following day at the Kingdom Chamber to Good Seeds a Non Profit Organization which benefits Latin families in Camden, NJ .
