Join Colgate and Champions for Kids to Help School Districts in Your Hometown #Colgate4Kids

I remember when my youngest son was in kindergarten and he asked me if we were poor.  "No" I responded with a heavy heart thinking my child thinks we're poor.  Then he looked at me and said "Mommy, my friend is rich.  She has silver teeth."  I didn't have the heart to tell him the reason his friend had silver teeth was not because they were rich but probably due to cavities, so I simply said "Oh" in my mommy voice.

Children's dental health is a passion of mine and I am honored to have the opportunity to share with you how Colgate, Champions for Kids and Collective Bias are helping kids in my school district.  Funny thing is neither had any idea the Three Boys and an Old Lady family uses Colgate.  I even use  Colgate Prevident 5000, it's one of the Colgate Rx only products for those of us with sensitive teeth.  Colgate is just a product of choice in our home and I'm very excited to participate in this project.

What's the project?
     During the month of March, shoppers at select Walmart stores in Central Arkansas will have the opportunity to donate Colgate toothbrushes and toothpaste at in-store donation bins, promoting dental care and directly benefitting children in Central Arkansas. Displays will be throughout the stores and cashiers will also have toothpaste and toothbrushes in a special box at the register for purchase. The donated items will be directly donated to the school district near that Walmart store so it will directly benefit YOUR community!

  • Look for a display like this (found at both entrances at my local Walmart Neighborhood Market)
Or a display like this near the cash registers
  •  Choose a Colgate toothbrush and/or toothpaste in the dental care aisle 
  •  Buy the product
  • Place in donation bin

When I saw the display at the register, I asked the cashier what the display was all about and he didn't know BUT fortunately, the Customer Service Manager, Sharon, knew all about the Colgate Champions for Kids campaign and handed me a leaflet detailing the program.  

Sharon is always helpful and I have yet to see her without a huge smile on her face.  She is wonderful.
While speaking with Sharon about the Colgate and Champions for Kids display, one of my kids' favorite teachers tapped me on the shoulder.  Talk about perfect timing.  After a quick greeting he joined in listening about the Colgate and Champions for Kids partnership and how donated Colgate  toothbrushes and toothpastes will be distributed to needy children in OUR community.  Awesome!!!   The teacher offered to share the news of this great partnership with fellow parents at our local school. I can't wait to see how many toothbrushes we collect.

Deciding which items to purchase was an easy task.  I just grabbed two of each.  I guess my neighbors hadn't heard about the program yet because *sigh* there were only 1 single, toothbrush in the bin.   No worries though, I purchased a tube of Dora the Explorer toothpastes and a couple Dora the Explorer and Spongebob Squarepants toothbrushes and added to the donation bin.  

Now it's your turn Central Arkansas.  During your next visit to Walmart, stop by and purchase a Colgate toothbrush and/or toothpaste and drop it in the bin.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
