I’m a huge fan of Leapfrog’s educational toys for kids. Thanks to their Tag Readers and books, our frequent 7-hour car trips to see the grandparents are a bit more bearable – and educational at that. But Leapfrog is about a lot more than easing my long car trips. Their recent Tag. Give. Read. campaign to donate Tag Reading Systems to schools was a HUGE success – $1.5 million in Tag Readers and book to the classrooms of more than 10,000 U.S. Kindergartners.
And they aren’t done yet.
Celebrity style maven, designer and Access Hollywood personality Jayneoni Moore was so impressed, she’s using her foundation The Jayneoni Moore Children’s Fund to join forces with LeapFrog to launch “Tag You’re It!” to get Tag Readers into the hands of even more kids. With the help of her celeb friends, Jayneoni and LeapFrog have been raising money to supply Kindergartners around the U.S. with the Tag Reading System.
Jayneoni and her celeb mom pals have been buying Tag Readers to give away to classrooms in need, and want to encourage you to donate as well. For every Tag Reader donated, LeapFrog will donate 5 books to accompany the Reader. And on November 14th, all these celeberity moms and their little ones will gather at a packing party to box up “Tag Kits” for classrooms.
LeapFrog is giving away a Tag Reader and their newly-released USA Map to one lucky MWS reader. The double-sided map helps kids 4-7 years old learn about map skills, geography, landmarks and other state facts with more than ten interactive games. A perfect holiday gift item!
But there’s more!
The winner also is entered into LeapFrog’s nationwide giveaway of an all-expenses-paid trip to Hollywood, CA to meet Jayneoni and her celebrity mom pals at the Tag Reader packing party! LeapFrog will take care of all travel arrangements and expenses, including transportation from home to the airport and back, transportation from airport to hotel, accommodations at the luxurious Beverly Hills boutique hotel The Peninsula (where the “packing party” will be held), and incidental expenses for meals and refreshments.
But you have to act fast! The contest to win the Tag Reader and USA map and to be entered into the Hollywood trip giveaway ends Saturday, November 6th at midnight P.S.T. To enter, leave a comment below that answers:
