I got the great chance to review some Gildan items for a great promotion that is going on now through November 15th. Their Touch Downs for Tuition is a great sweepstakes, you can win up to a $10,000 scholarship (no matter age of child) and a family (family of 4) trip to the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. They are also giving away 25 daily prizes that include their College Care Packages! (More in a minute on those) Enter here to win!
Now to the care packages! Right now through November 15, 2011, for every College Care Package that is purchased for $39.99 ($65 value) Gildan will donate a special care package to My Stuff Bags. My Stuff Bags has donated over 400,000 bags since they started in 1998! Their bags include a variety of items to bring children the comfort they need. You can purchase a care package for someone you love and know that one will be donated to another child in need. I know children that were in foster care and I think getting a special package to call their own from My Stuff Bags would really help them with a difficult transition. I also know that a college student will LOVE a care package! I used to check the mail every day hoping I had a package full of goodies! You can check HERE what is all listed in the care packages, there is a slight variation between men and women's.
My care package was slightly different but I loved it! This is what I got:
- 2 packages of Gildan socks (New socks are like walking on heaven)
- 3 2000L T-Shirts in Red, blue, and pink (like above pink shirt)
- A sport crew sweatshirt bluish/gray color
- A big Gildan tote, that Velcros shut!
I loved all the items. I ordered a size Medium for my package which is the normal size I wear. All the items fit, but the sweatshirt seemed a little short in the sleeves. It was still super comfortable! I would recommend these care packages to any! Who does not need socks, shirts, etc?? They are made of great quality and are super comfortable. Plus, you will be helping out a great cause with the My Stuff Bags!!
(I did receive items for free in exchange for my review, however the opinions are mine and mine alone.)
