I know are all sweltering in the summer heat but before you know it, moms from coast to coast will be running around shopping for Back to School! There, I said it, it’s almost time to start prepping for Back to School. At times like Back to School and Christmas I love to pick out items that I know my little ones will get excited about. From their favorite character to their favorite colors I am always sure to pick up what they will love.
One of my favorite shoes brands to buy my daughter is pediped. Their styles are adorable and I like the flexibility of their soles. That is why I was happy to read about pediped’s mission to give back over $13,000.00 this year to schools enrolled in their pediped® ♥ schools program. If you are already going to buy shoes for back to school why not make it a pair that will benefit your child’s school!
Charitable footwear brand, pediped®, announces the company will give $13,000 back to over 200 schools enrolled into the pediped® ♥ schools program. Each school will receive a check for a 10% rebate on their total attributed purchases of pediped® footwear from May 15, 2013 to May 15, 2014. The top five performing schools will receive $1,000 as an additional bonus.
pediped® ♥ schools is a one-of-a-kind giving campaign where participating education partners receive a check for 10% of their total combined purchases of pediped® each year. Individual schools can earn up to $10,000 per year.pediped® is thrilled with the success of the program to date which receives positive feedback as it also brings awareness to the importance of helping schools get the things they need.
pediped® ♥ schools is currently accepting enrollment for the upcoming year. School officials and leaders of the PTO or PTA are encouraged to enroll their community’s school along with parents and teachers. Upon enrollment, each school receives a unique code and those who purchase pediped® footwear should enter the code at checkout when shopping online at pediped.com or in any pediped owned boutique located in Las Vegas. pediped® tracks the purchases registered to each school’s code to determine the amount of dollars earned. Purchases will be tracked now until May 15, 2015 and schools will receive checks for 10% back in June 2015.
Schools enrolled into the program are encouraged to visit http://www.pediped.com/pedipedschools.aspx to track their earnings and print promotional aids to pass out to parents and caregivers to help spread the word of the program. pediped® will also provide electronic newsletters that can be shared through the school’s online community as well.
Giving back has and always will be a core value of pediped®. Since its founding in 2005, pediped® has been dedicated to bettering communities and enriching the lives of children. In 2010, the pediped® Foundation was established and since its inception has donated $2.75 million in product and monetary support to charities around the world that are devoted to the health, education, and basic needs of children. pediped® ♥ schools is yet another commitment of the company’s continuing philanthropic efforts.
