Disclosure: During the back to school season, as part of a sponsored post for Collective Bias® I created an easy lunch recipe with Tyson Chicken products and registered my school for the Project A+ Program.
Back-to-school is the word on the streets recently. I know here in Georgia, school started last week and had people clamoring for ways to help improve the school year with everything from a quick family dinner to fundraising for schools. Tyson chicken is lending a hand with Project A+, which helps with half meal solutions as well as earning cash for your very own school!
Project A+ with Tyson chicken is offering to help schools buy whatever supplies they might need during the year by encouraging families to redeem labels found on over 30 Tyson products. You can cut, collect and send these labels to earn cash for your school! Here's a peek at the labels our family is collecting:
Red may not be in grade school yet, but I sure am back at school! One of the many hats I wear is to teach costume design and makeup to students at private school in Georgia. I also costume the vast number of shows that the K-12 students put on with faculty help and other professional designers. Many of you may have noticed the decline in number of Fine Arts programs in your school due to budgetary cuts - it's unfortunately one of the first things to go. By collecting Project A+ labels and sending them in to Tyson chicken, our program can earn funds to help buy a new sewing machine, create sets and costumes for the children, and enrich the student's arts education (after all, who do you think is going to direct that blockbuster hit in 20 years - today's student!). Each label is worth a whopping 24 cents, which is a LOT more than other redemption label programs!
Is your school enrolled in Project A+? Check by looking up your school on the Tyson Chicken Project A+ Website. My school was not yet registered, so I visited the ENROLL NOW! page to enter information and create our account!
See the four big buttons on the website above? Easy, clickable buttons to get right down the business. Sign up or find your school, redeem labels and find participating products. Signing my school up took no more than 2 minutes... it was super easy! Now I'm ready to clip labels, encourage our students to do the same, and earn cash for my school and theatre program! When I have gathered 100+ labels, the easy to find redemption form (see button on image above) is a snap to print and mail. 4-6 weeks later and check will be in hand! (I find this to be REALLY exciting and a fun challenge to take on!)
When you're visiting the Project A+ website, check out the Getting Started page. You'll find notices for your school's parents, professional press releases and neat-o clip art (like this funny little chicken!) to start decorating your own label collection box. Everything you need in one great spot.
But, wait a second. When you're collecting and clipping labels, what do you do with all this yummy chicken? I have you covered. Hubs devised this homemade twist on a Spicy Chicken Sandwich that you can make at home to jazz up your casual meal routine. I think you'll like it!
