pediped® will give back to schools as part of its pediped® ♥’s Schools initiative this fall Enrolled schools will receive 10% back on all attributed purchases giving parents another reason to shop the award-winning brand


Schools everywhere will have yet another reason to celebrate this school year. On July 24, 2013, pediped® launched ‘pediped ♥ ‘s Schools’, a new, one-of-a-kind, giving campaign where participating schools will receive a check for 10% back on their total attributed purchases of pediped® Footwear. Each school can earn up to $10,000 per year.


School officials and leaders of the PTO or PTA are encouraged to enroll their school to best spread the word. Parents and teachers may also enroll their school into the program.  Each school will receive a unique code upon enrollment. Members of the school and community should use this code at checkout when making a purchase on or in any pediped® owned boutique (located in Las Vegas). pediped® will compile and track the purchases attributed to each school’s code and each school will receive 10% back on their total combined purchases. Purchases will be tracked now until May 15, 2014 and schools will receive their checks in June 2014. Any purchases made after May 15 will roll over to the next school year. Schools will be able to track their earnings on


“I’m excited to celebrate the start of a new school year with kids everywhere, said Angela Edgeworth, founder of pediped® Footwear. “Schools need our help now more than ever and it’s essential for them to have the things they need. We are receiving heavy support from parents and teachers alike who see the value in creating awareness on the importance of providing schools with adequate resources. Giving back always has and will continue to be a core value of pediped®.”


Since its founding in 2005, pediped® has been dedicated to enriching the lives of children. pediped® established the pediped® Foundation in 2010 to work directly with charities that are devoted to the health, education and basic needs of children around the world. Since its inception, the pediped® Foundation has donated nearly two million dollars in product and monetary support. pediped® ♥‘s Schools is yet another commitment to the continuing philanthropic efforts of pediped® Footwear.

We love pediped and have featured them before! My son was happy to receive some new shoes from pediped for the Fall season and upcoming Winter!  He received the Flex Charleston-Navy and loves how comfortable they are! I love that they are sturdy and fit true to size.  They also feature the Flex Fit System, which allows children to adjust their shoes and prolong the length of wear and are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development. These are a must have for this Fall and upcoming Winter!

The Perfect Pet by Samantha Bell Found at Sylvan Dell Publishing


After Begging for a pet, a child’s mother finally says “yes.” But which animal will be the best pet? Using animal classification and habitat needs, the child narrows it down from Kingdom Animalia, through invertebrates to vertebrates. Reptiles and amphibians are out, and birds and fish are soon off the list. That leaves mammals, but which one? An elephant won’t fit through the door, and a tiger would be too hard to walk. What’s a child to do? This is a fun and entertaining story for children ages 5-8. My son and I enjoyed finding out what the child in the story would do! As usual, with the Sylvan Dell Publishing Books there is a great section For Creative Minds and this one includes Animal Classification and Compare and Contrast the Animals activities. For more information, check out the Sylvan Dell Publishing website.
