Get a free backpack (after rebate) from Staples beginning on my birthday, Sunday 25 July, through the 31st.
Hmm...whom do you know, could use a good backpack. Your children, grandchildren, nephew--neighbor children whose parents are unemployed, men and women at your local homeless shelter. Maybe you'll just want to surprise a homeless person whom you know with the gift of a new backpack. Nicer-looking and more efficient than plastic garbage bags.
Beginning Sunday, 25 July, OfficeMax will be offering a similar deal via their Max Perks Rewards. Get two free backpacks and pass them along to a friend or homeless person in need. I love giving gifts, don't you?
