  • Help Kleenex Support Healthy Schools by Entering the Kleenex in the Classroom Sweepstakes

    This post is brought to you in partnership with Kleenex brand. You can read CFO’s full disclosure here.


    Kleenex brand is America’s softest tissue and committed to supporting healthy kids. Kleenex has introduced the new Kleenex Everyday Tissue with Sneeze Shield, which is now thicker and more absorbent to help keep the wet stuff off kids’ hands. Plus they come in a variety of portable and convenient package sizes for use on-the-go. They’re especially useful in the classroom, where germs spread all too easily.

    The 2012-2013 school year may not have ended yet, but Kleenex brand is already looking ahead to next school year. As the only facial tissue that participates in Box Tops for Education, Kleenex brand is giving teachers, school administrators and parent volunteers the opportunity to win 250,000 eBoxTops for the 2013-2014 school year through the Kleenex brand in the Classroom sweepstakes. That’s the equivalent of $25,000 that your school can spend on much needed supplies and support, and there will be three winners!

    All you have to do is submit a list at You don’t have to be a teacher to create a list – in fact, I was able to create one on behalf of my child’s teacher. Be sure to include Kleenex and at least three other items on your list to enter the sweepstakes. The list looks like it is going to be an easy way to share classroom needs and wants with other parents and volunteers, and after creating my list, I received an email with a direct link to the list that I can cut and paste into emails and web sites.

    What would your school do with an extra $25,000?
