The academic demands placed on students and funding requirements placed on schools have never been greater than they are today.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2012
With school just around the corner, many parents are concerned about how to best prepare youngsters for optimal learning throughout the day. To support that goal, CommonKindess features printable grocery coupons for nutritious, all-natural and organic meals and snacks that boost children's mental and physical energy, save parents money, and contribute to the nonprofit organizations that enhance their schools.
Nutrition and Academic Performance
Nutrition is an important element of academic success, according to a recent study. In looking at the correlation between diet and academic performance, researchers found that placing 11 year olds on a healthy diet enhanced science scores by 8% and English scores by 6%, while reducing absenteeism due to sickness by 15%.
“The academic demands placed on students and funding requirements placed on schools have never been greater than they are today,” said Sarah Schloemer, president of CommonKindness.com.
“We are proud to offer families discount coupons for all-natural and healthy meal and snack foods that help our children succeed and help fund many of the organizations that benefit our schools.”
Coupons Provide Funds to School Organizations
By donating 20% of its revenues to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, CommonKindness gives parents a way to fund groups involved in educational activities. These include tax-exempt parent-teacher organizations (PTO) and anti-bullying groups like B.R.A.V.E. (Bullies Really Are Violating Everyone).
Coupon users designate which nonprofits will receive funds when they register on the CommonKindness web site.
“People are already couponing, so the CommonKindess model makes funding nonprofits that benefit schools even easier than a cake walk,” said Schloemer.
