The holidays are the perfect time to give and Im excited to be part of the GE Lighting Champions for Kids event. The idea is that if we replace incandescent bulbs with GE energy smart bulbs we will save money, energy and reduce greenhouse gases. GE has a great Energy Savings Calculator that will estimate and reduce your energy usage. Estimate the number of bulbs that your household or business can change and then enter your classroom or charity to win a $100 Walmart gift card every day in November. [How cool is that?]
We headed to Walmart to purchase a package of GE energy smart light bulbs to donate to a charity here in town. Every time we head to Walmart we have to use the huge double seat cart because the kids want to sit next to each other.
We browsed around the store before making our way to the lighting section. I grabbed a six pack of GE energy smart light bulbs and a few other things around the store. Check out the rest of our shopping trip here.
We plan on donating the light bulbs to our local Ronald McDonald house here in town. I really love this organization and volunteered with them many times in high school. Its comforting to know that if my kids every get sick and have to be away from home for treatment that there is an inviting place for us to stay. I am excited to take the kids with me next week to drop of our donations and explain to them the importance of giving back.
