It’s that time of year again…the beginning of a new school year.
For some kids, it’s a time for new school supplies and clothing, but unfortunately for some, that’s not the case. There are parents who can’t afford a brand new wardrobe for their kids, let alone school supplies, so OshKosh B’Gosh, along with K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers, Inc. is helping local youths get some new duds this year to help them start their new school year off on the right foot.
How you can help
If you would like to help make a difference in a local youth’s life, you can donate a new pair of jeans to an OshKosh B’Gosh store or make a cash donation until September 16th, 2015, as part of the B’Gosh Jeanius Campaign.
The Carters Charitable Foundation will match the cash donations, up to $50,000, as well as donate a brand new clothing item to match every pair of jeans donated. Funds will be distributed via DonorsChoose.org while the clothing will be distributed to local youths via K.I.D.S/Fashion Delivers, Inc.

Our OshKosh B’Gosh shopping trip purchases
As for our kiddos, this year is a big one for three out of four. Our girls are going into the high school while my son is going to a school not affiliated with the district he and his siblings attended last year. We enrolled him in a new charter school to ensure he gets the attention he needs, so that means he has to make a whole new set of friends. To say he’s a bit scared would be an understatement.
To help start the boys’ school year off right, we were given a $100 gift card to purchase some new clothes from OshKosh, which I’m incredibly thankful for. OshKosh B’Gosh is a brand I trust to provide quality childrens’ clothing. It was a part of my wardrobe as a kid, so it was a no brainer for me when I started dressing my own kids in OshKosh clothing. In my opinion, no toddler wardrobe is complete with a good ole pair of overalls.
Thankfully OshKosh is also a brand both of our sons love since OshKosh they carry more than just blue jeans and the world’s best overalls. They also carry a black, white and indigo collection, as well as activewear for today’s busy kids, like the outfits below.
My son decided to get the entire outfit, complete with pants, shirt and jacket while my stepson wanted the shirt and jacket. These pieces will come in handy during the coming soccer season for both boys.
In addition, my eight-year-old son picked out the t-shirts below all on his own. He absolutely loves the selection at OshKosh. It allows him to express himself and his quirky little personality.
I also picked out a shirt for my son that was a tad dressier that would look great with a pair of khaki pants or shorts. (I’m actually letting him wear this to a media event that we are attending tomorrow as a family. I want him to look spiffy.)
Last but not least, I also bought him some new socks for school. They are nice and thick and are sure to keep his feet warm this winter.
