Everyone has been a victim of the budget crisis, schools in particular. Every year schools are scraping to make sure that they have the tools they need to teach our children. Education is without a doubt the foundation to success. It is every one's responsibility to make sure that our children are given every opportunity to flourish.
Real Seal Appeal is a program that has been launched by Real California Milk to support schools in California. The program will award up to $2 million dollars in cash, prizes, and books to California Schools. Every time you purchase a product with the Real California Milk seal on it, you will be supporting the 1,620 dairy families, who work hard for us each and every day, and you'll also be supporting California schools.
Milk and dairy products play a vital role in child development. It is very important that children have the right amounts of calcium-rich foods in their diet.
What can you do to help?
Collect: You and your family can collect the Real California Milk seal from items you purchase. Send the seals to school with your child so they can be turned into his/her teacher. Every seal is like a sweepstakes entry, the more seals that are collected, the more chances for your son or daughter's school has to win.
Enter: Teachers submit the seals, along with a 3x5 card (with your name, school name and address, phone number, email address, grade, and number of students in your class). For every 100 or more seals you submit, you will receive either 25 free scholastic books or a $25 school supply gift card.
