A few weeks ago I mentioned the Bag It Forward program and Elmer’s 1st Day app when I shared my school supply cake. Today I would like to take a moment to spotlight the app and how you can help a child in need. As I mentioned last time Elmer’s has teamed up with the Kids In Need Foundation by donating school supplies to children in need. For each photo uploaded (up to 200,000) Elmer’s will donate a school supply to the Kids In Need Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides supplies to needy children.
Elmer’s is providing parents with an easy way to capture and share those priceless memories that we all want to remember with the 1st Day app . The app can be used for anything you wish to capture, whether it’s their first day of school or first day of soccer. Maybe it’s a picture of their first time writing their name or a picture of them with their first teacher, we all want to capture those moments right? By uploading those pictures you can help give a child the tools they need to learn this upcoming school year.
The app is very easy to download and use. It allows you to upload photos, create albums, slide shows, and even decorate the pictures with colorful borders. The pictures can also be shared on Facebook or by email, so that relatives who live far away can see those first experiences. The free app can be use on iPhone and Android phones by scanning the QR code found on select Elmer’s glue bottles and in-store displays. You can also download the app directly from iTunes or Google play.
My son starts school in a few weeks and I’m excited to share his first day with his grandparents using the 1st Day app.To learn more and download the app visit Elmer’s 1st Day. #the1stday
Disclaimer: I was NOT compensated to write this post. I truly feel that this is a great way to help children whose families do not have the means to purchase school supplies. I’m writing this post because I’m passionate about helping children in need and really encourage you to check out the app.
