Sears Canada has been surprising families in-store and online this month!
Their goal is to help families with school aged children get ready for Back to School so they can Rock the Halls!
Be sure to see the Sears Back to School Giveaway at the bottom of this post! It is a quick giveaway, so enter now and visit daily to receive your extra entries.
How cool is this? Across Canada, as part of their Surprise & Delights program, Sears has been, surprising shoppers by providing their purchases to them for FREE! This video honestly gave me shivers – the good kind! I love to see random acts of kindness in effect and this is a great example.
I remember when I started at the University of Guelph for my Undergrad degree. I didn’t have much money to my name and I had an emotional transition from leaving home. During Homecoming weekend, I entered a draw, not thinking much of it and I WON! Up until then, I had never won anything in my life and this prize was a pretty large prize (for a first year university student) and included a ton of University of Guelph apparel, food points for my meal plan and more. I remember the thrill and the feeling of gratitude I felt when I won this prize. I can only begin to imagine how these families feel when they learn that they have received their Back to School purchases for FREE courtesy of Sears Canada! WOW! Can you imagine?
I absolutely LOVE it when brands give back! Sears does this by having a relationship with Girls and Boys Club of Canada. Sears Canada has been a proud supporter for over 40 years of Boys and Girls Club across Canada (BGCC), Canada’s leading provider of quality after school programs that support the healthy physical, educational, social and mental development of Canadian children and youth.
Sears shares Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada’s philosophy that providing all Canadian children and youth with access to opportunity is essential to helping them achieve their full potential and to create a better future.
To help out with this year’s back-to-school season, Sears Canada and Converse will be providing the GBCC with $10,000 worth of BTS Apparel! What a generous donation!
While Back to School shopping with your family, I encourage you to pay a visit to Sears. They have a large variety of well known clothing and apparel brands at reasonable prices and I love the way their stores are laid out for easy shopping. And, who knows, you could be the next lucky family to receive your back to school shopping for FREE!

I have made sure that everyday we have done something whether it was something simple like having a family game night or bowling or something more exciting like going to Wonderland, we have done something everyday all summer. He is going to have a tough time adjusting to the regular routine and now he’s going to be gone all, makes me one sad Momma
