Fill the Backpack!

In Uncategorized by savvysassymoms3 Comments

Do you know what happens when 8 savvy online women get together and form a skype group?  It turns into a very Creative, Intelligent, Sassy and Chatty Skype room!    Typically, what is typed in the online chat room stays in the online chat room, but this particular conversation evolved into something that just couldn’t be contained.

 We wanted to do something for back to school – but we wanted to do something that focused not only on giving but helping teachers, parents and students with some really cool tools for Back to School.   Somewhere in between all the LOL giggles, advice, brainstorming , celebrating, ranting and raving, oh and a few glasses of wine,  “Fill the Backpack” was born! 

“Fill the Backpack”
The Parent. The Student. The Teacher.
August 16th – Septemeber 16th

 We will be giving away 16 backpacks overflowing with back to school surprises and hosting a Dream Classroom Contest for teachers and parents to submit a 200 word essay describing their dream classroom.  Two entries will receive $500 to to help assist in the building of the classroom of their dreams.

We have partnered with VolunteerSpot and this event will be sponsored by Ziploc Brand and 20th Century Fox as well as other brands that have contributed to filling the backpack!  Please visit for more Information, The Dream Classroom Contest, Contest Rules, Our Sponsors and the list of Participating Brands!

  1. Wow…savvy online women! What a creative way to get parents, students and teachers excited about a new school year! Being a former teacher myself, I would think teachers would be jumping at the chance to design their own dream classroom! Best wishes to all submissions!

  2. Hi, do I just comment here to participate in the contest for the backpacks? Thanks!

    I’d love to win for my daughter’s teacher. She’s already requested that some students couldn’t afford supplies and is starting a drive for them.
