I recall seeing a post on one of the forums that someone was saving  Box tops for education for their schools. My kids are grown and I would be glad to start saving these for someone that needs them . I see so many of these that I throw away and I could send a lot of them to someone for the price of a postage stamp. I'll bet there some of the rest of you out there would like to help with this too. Maybe those of you that could use the box tops could post a reply and let us know if you would like us to save these for you. Maybe if we get enough people to participate we could each be matched up with  person we are saving for. If I remember correctly each boxtop is about the equivalent of a dime.

I don't want to deprive any of your forum friends, but over time you may find it's not convenient to keep mailing them off. Having been involved in many school parent organizations, I'd bet one nearby - maybe in your community would like them. 

So if you get tired of mailing them to someone, you might simply make a call to whatever elementary schools are closest to you. Then you'd just be able to drop them off at the front desk every so often while running errands.

Whatever means you pursue - it's great you are making an effort. Each boxtop means 10 cents to a school and they really add up. It's a shame for them to go in the trash.

Could someone please tell me if you just rip off the entire box top? I never saved these before but have often see posts about the box tops. I would love to start saving them for everyone but I just want to be sure that I do this correctly. Have a wonderful day.

Hi Jeannie, not quite. On top of the box is a small red rectangular box w/ dotted lines around it...and it says "BOX TOP$ FOR EDUCATION". The "FOR EDUCATION" is written on the pic of a pencil. That's what all the fuss is about :) You can usually just tear around that box, we're all glad to have those.

These are on a variety of products...you could check out http://www.boxtops4education.com for a list of products that have these little precious on them and for a better picture of what they look like. Hope this helps and thanks for offering to save them for us/those who collect them. Hope you have a wonderful day too! :)

Thank You Rose for explaining this to me. I felt like an idiot asking but I wanted to be sure that I did this correctly. Thanks for also providing a link that provides a list as this has really helped. I never even noticed this on the boxes before.
