Gutzy Gear and Madame Deals: Pay it Forward


With back to school in full swing, it is easy to be focused on your own kids – I actually had my son and daughter’s schools supplies ready to go quite early this year. But when I saw the opportunity to donate a backpack of school supplies to a good cause, I knew that I had to take advantage of it. My friend Audrey has an amazing organization, Youth Action Without Borders, bringing hope to children in Dakar, Senegal. While I had already sent her one box, I am always on the lookout for good deals and starting another box to send to Audrey.

Here is what I bought:

Notebook   Paper – 2 packs
Marble   Composition Book – 2 books
Spiral   Notebook – 5
2 Pocket   Folder – 5
Book Cover – 2
Permanent   Markers
Mechanical   Pencil
24 pack #2   Pencils
12 Pack Pens
Elmer’s Glue
Pencil Case
Index Cards

I put all this in a a brand new backpack, and then I received enough Gutzy Gear to get one backpack started, and sent the whole thing on its way. Thank you very much Gutsy Gear and Madame Deals Media for making this possible.
