Your Students/Children Can Help the Homeless Through Kids' Design Contest

Just heard about a great contest opportunity for your kids/students age 12 and younger:
The Company Store ( has just launched a Kids' Design Contest as part of its comforter donation program.  Now through March 27th, we’re accepting original artwork designed by children 12 and under that is created with the inspiration to brighten the spirits of homeless children. From March 28th through April 22nd, Facebook fans will vote on the submitted designs. The highest voted design will be “printed” on thousands of comforters that The Company Store will donate to homeless children around the country as part of its Buy One, Give One program – since January 2011 for every comforter a customer purchases, The Company Store donates a comforter to a homeless child. Plus the top three voted designs in the contest wins a gift card for the child designer.

If you or anyone in your organization is interested, we would sincerely appreciate a visit to the Facebook page for The Company Store (go to and click on the Kids' Design Contest tab on the left). We value giving back to the community through the comforter donation program and hope this contest helps inspire creativity among children as well as educate about homeless children in America.
I like that the real "prize" is the satisfaction of helping a lot of people (with a gift card thrown in as a bonus).
