Now that the kids are heading back to school, why not help out their schools by entering the Macy's Classroom Makeover Sweepstakes, for a chance to win $25,000 for the school of your choice. What a great sweepstakes and way that Macy's is helping to give back and provide more opportunities to our children to learn and excel in school. I don't know any school that wouldn't be grateful to receive $25,000. I have entered this sweepstakes on behalf of each of the schools in my town of Putnam, CT. This money would help buy new textbooks, computers and other school supplies, as well as help with curriculum development. With the way that the economy is, schools are forced to make cuts in crucial programs. And, in turn, our children suffer, by not being able to excel or try new things like sports or participate in after-school programs, or have newer technology available to them. Over the past few months, we have been holding back to school drives to help fill backpacks with school supplies and have them available to children who can't afford a new bag or supplies for the new school year. Winning this sweepstakes would be a great help in making sure all children are prepared for school this year, and have everything they need to get an education they deserve!
So, what are you waiting for? It is easy to enter the Macy's Classroom Makeover Sweepstakes, and only takes a few minutes. Just follow the steps below to enter your child's or grandchild's school. Even if you don't have children, this is a great sweepstakes to enter, and with your help, a local school and their students will be forever grateful!
Act now, as this sweepstakes ends on September 15, 2011.
