uDraw and Box Tops for Education

I know a lot of my homeschool friends love using the uDraw tablet from THQ.My Princess certainly does!

My friends at THQ have asked me to let you know that they have teamed up with General Mills to help support America’s schools through its newly introduced eBoxTops® “Click & Earn” Box Tops for Education® program.

From now until December 31, participants who simply view a uDraw commercial and answer a quick survey here

and earn three eBoxTops® credits toward their designated school, no purchase necessary.

According to General Mills,the Box Tops for Education® program has earned America’s schools more than $400 million since the program started in 1996, including $59 million last school year.More than 90,000 K-8 schools are enrolled in the program and each school can earn up to $60,000 every year.

“THQ has always been a proponent of helping children and supporting education,” said Martin Good, executive vice president, Kids, Family and Casual Games at PlayTHQ®. “We are delighted that uDraw, our drawing and gaming device that encourages creativity and appreciation for the arts in kids, is the first interactive video game product to be featured with the Box Tops for Education® program. This is a great beginning to what we hope to become a long-term partnership with General Mills.”

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
