As rising costs and budget cuts hit schools across the U.S., it is no surprise that extracurricular and out-of-classroom activities are becoming more infrequent or even eliminated. According to the Wall Street Journal, one in four schools is being forced to cut field trips due to budget constraints.
This back to school season, Kleenex brand wants to give back to the families and schools that have been supportive over the years by presenting them the opportunity to win $5,000 to use toward school field trips. One hundred schools will be awarded during the 2011-2012 school year. Starting June 29, students and their families and friends can visit www.Facebook.com/Kleenex to vote for their school and save the field trips!
In addition, the Kleenex brand is unveiling a new line of on-the-go packs with Sneeze Shield, so kids can keep their sneezes to themselves.
The on-the-go packages include:
· The wallet pack.. It is thin and sleek, so you can always keep a tissue on hand. Their trendy design and convenient size make it the perfect accessory for hip tweens and teens.
· The auto pack. It fits perfectly in the car door or glove compartment – no need to lug around a box of tissue or fumble in a purse for a tissue while driving.
· The new and improved pocket pack. A long-time favorite has been improved to feature three-ply tissue.
My OpinionMy husband is a chronic nose blower and he really prefers Kleenex to blow into! :)
That is one reason I was so excited to receive these new on-the-go Kleenex packages! They fit everywhere and anywhere so that my husband can always have a Kleenex nearby!
I love that these packs still have a lot of Kleenex in them, but they are nice and small. The auto pack was perfect for emergencies in the car and fit perfectly in the glove box!
The pocket packs are my favorite because I can stick them in my purse and use them to wipe my son's face, nose, and hands whenever needed!
And the wallet pack I sent with my hubby to work to put on his desk or in his pocket so he will always have Kleenex on hand when he needs it! He is loving using Kleenex instead of toilet paper! :)
And to top it off, they have fun colors and designs available for all the packs!
I recommend the New On-the-Go Kleenex Packs for all families and on-the-go people! They have made a pack for every need and every location throughout the day! You will never have to go without Kleenex again! :)
