So, with our recent mini shopping spree giveaway, I bet that had you all excited for purchasing your own new goodies. Whether that meant back-to-school shopping for the kids, buying the usual staples for your home, or even getting yourself a little something, making store purchases is kind of inevitable. We all need the basics and, regardless of all else, we will still go shopping. Cliché or not, that’s what we women like to do. Now, how many times have you gone out on a shopping trip and gotten roped into one of those “please donate to such-and-such” promotions when at the register. We’ve all been there and, sure, most of us would like to help out, donate, and do our part. On the other hand, watching the bill’s total continue to climb with every purchase and then the added charitable donation isn’t exactly fun. What if I told you that you could have the best of both worlds? What if you could do some good for our society and make a charitable donation by simply purchasing something that you already planned on buying? Would you be more enticed to tap into the philanthropic side of yourself?
Get ready to do so because it’s true! Once again, Kohl’s has stepped up to the plate to be a leader in the retail shopping industry in their decision to launch their line of Kohl’s Cares products. Kohl’s Cares, exclusive to Kohl’s stores, offers shoppers an array of items (most of which we would all buy regularly) that includes a charitable donation within the price of each individual item.
As a parent, the majority of my shopping is done for my children. With everything from toys and books to clothing and stuffed animals, I feel as if I am constantly making some type of purchase for them. All of these purchases, unfortunately, do not come with a magic trick that helps to make the lives of others any better… until now. I was recently introduced to the Kohl’s Cares product line and (finally!) someone was genius enough to put the two tasks together. You can now buy what you need for your own family while still being able to help others. Take the Kohl’s Cares kids’ products for example…
Children can divulge into a world of products full of those that encourage a playful curiosity and you, well, you get to find solace in the fact that you’re giving back to your community. Through the end of September, Kohl’s is offering exclusive hardcover editions of the darling, timeless tales of Curious George. With 100% of proceeds going directly to profiting children’s health and education initiatives nationwide, the simple act of enjoying a storybook with your child will help better the lives of other children across the country. At only $5 each, this adorable collection of reading materials, sweet plush toys, note cards, and even a backpack all featuring everyone’s favorite little mischievous monkey is a wonderful investment. Not only will it allow your children the curious play and learning that they crave but it will allow them to embark on their own philanthropic adventure.
The Kohl’s Cares Cause Merchandise for Kids line includes the following:
- Curious George Goes Camping book & Moose plush (An Online Exclusive!)
Explore the great outdoors with Curious George as he wanders his way through the woods and, ultimately, into some mischief on his first camping trip.

- Curious George’s First Day of School book & Curious George plush

After raising more than $231 million since its launch in 2000, Kohl’s Cares has certainly done its part in helping to fund children’s health and education programs across the country. All of this, of course, happened due to the everyday shopping of loyal Kohl’s customers like YOU!
Kohl’s was generous enough to send my own little ones some goodies from the Kohl’s Cares for Kids line and they have truly and thoroughly enjoyed them. Our little one even takes his new plush everywhere! These products are certainly worth the $5 price tag and then some. Not only are all of the products a huge hit with children but the basic idea of doing good for others certainly sells it. I highly recommend the Kohl’s Cares line whether you’re shopping for your own kids, gifts for family and friends, or even yourself!
Oh, you’re not into Curious George swag for yourself? No worries! The Kohl’s Cares line has goodies for adults, too! With three different cookbooks as well as a collection of women’s clothing all supporting good causes, Kohl’s Cares has products for everyone.
When you’re planning your next shopping trip, you may want to keep Kohl’s in mind. Your purchase today will go directly towards helping others better their tomorrow. That in itself is reason enough to shop Kohl’s. Be good to yourself and do good unto others with Kohl’s Cares.
