Box Tops for Education
Amount earned for Bubb in 2016-17 school year: $582.50
If you're looking for a way to help out your child's school, start clipping Box Tops for Education. You probably have a ton in your pantry, and they can make a world of difference to a district in need. In today's difficult economy, most school districts are struggling to make ends meet as they educate hundreds, or even thousands, of students every day. Even though you'd love to help your child's school district, you probably don't have the funds to start writing checks on top of the school taxes you already pay.
Start clipping Box Tops for Education. Hundreds of products participate in the program, and you may already have several in your tissue boxes, cereals, and other products in your pantry, freezer, and fridge. For every Box Top you clip, your child's school will receive 10 cents. That may not sound like a lot, but it adds up quickly. Each school can receive up to $20,000 per school year from clipped Box Tops.
Earn an Ice Cream Party for Your Class!
Here's how to win an Ice Cream Party for your class:

eScrip is a very simple yet very important fundraising program. You shop at participating merchants and Bubb receives a percentage of your purchases. Once you are registered with eScrip as a Bubb supporter, all you do is shop as you normally would, and Bubb automatically receives the money. It's the easiest fundraising program we have!
There are many ways you can earn for Bubb:
- Credit/Debit cards, and your Macy's card registered with eScrip. When your cards are registered, a percentage of all of your purchases at from many national merchants, hotels, and restaurants, both in store and online, go to Bubb. See the complete list of over 1,000 eScrip merchants at www.escrip.com.
- eScrip Visa Platinum Card. This card is issued by National City Bank and earns up to 2% of every qualifying net purchase. And when you use your eScrip Visa at participating eScrip merchants, the purchase gets both the merchant and Visa earnings.
- eScrip Online Mall. Shop online at your favorite retailers through eScrip's portal, shopping.escrip.com. From this website you can also download AutoEARN to your computer so every time you shop, your contribution is credited automatically to Bubb (AutoEARN only works on Windows OS, not Mac OS).
To register, go to www.escrip.com (Bubb's ID # is 137956095) and sign up using your debit/credit card number.
