GE Lighting Simple Service: Donation Time

November 20, 2012

Thanks to GE lighting I was able to take a large pack of energy efficient light bulbs over to the NWA Children’s shelter. Organizations like our children’s shelter rely on donations for their needs and every area that can be tended to is a huge blessing.

Earlier last week, the boys and I headed out to Walmart to grab our donation. I was amazed at the choices of light bulbs. Maybe it’s because I’m not the light bulb shopper in our family, but it took me a minute to browse through everything. There were so many great options. You can see more of our shopping trip here.

We settled on this 6 pack of 75 watt bulbs that actually only use 20 watts of electricity. How crazy is that!? You get full lighting for 1/3 of the energy usage, what a win-win. If you are remodeling or looking to upgrade your home with energy saving light bulbs, then you will want to check out this rebate information. You can also find a $1 off coupon here.

You aren’t allowed to take pictures at the Children’s Shelter, so here is my bag on its way to donate light bulbs. I tried to close my eyes and imagine it being helpful in more ways than just being a light bulb. Maybe having these light bulbs on hand will make it possible to buy one more Christmas present this year or buy a few extra articles of clothing. You really just never know the full impact your simple service acts can have.

Remember, you can report your Simple Service projects over at Champions for Kids. You can also nominate a classroom to get a chance to win a $100 Walmart Gift Card over here! If you are a teacher GE lighting has even provided this lesson plan for you to use to learn more about energy saving light bulbs.

I loved being part of this project and can’t wait for my next opportunity to participate in another simple service project.

As part of my partnership with GE, I received coupons for my GE light bulbs.  All opinions posted about my GE Lighting experience are my own.I am a member of the Collective Bias™ Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias Champions for Kids and GE Lighting #CBias #SocialFabric

    It’s one of those things you never think about, but a small change like a light bulb that saves money will add up-hundreds of dollars they’ll never spend on electricity!
