So while the answer is nearly always no, that doesn't mean that there aren't exceptions to the rule. A great sale is one thing, but the ability to get a great deal, support a good cause AND make my kids happy all at once?
That's what is found season after season with the Kohl's Cares Merchandise Program and the fantastic products that they continue to offer. Just in time for fall, the newest collection features one of our most beloved characters, Curious George, and the books, plush toys, backpack and note cards that can be purchased for only $5!
An amazing program that is a hit with kids as well as their parents, Kohl's donates 100% of the net profit from the Kohl's Cares Program to children's health and education initiatives across the country. Since 2000, more than $231 million has been raised nationwide!
This fall, Kohl's is inviting children and families across the country to indulge in playful curiosity while giving back to their communities with the latest Kohl's Cares collection. Children will be enchanted as they learn to read the whimsical tales of everyone's favorite curious monkey, and adults can be proud to support such a philanthropic program!

Rey books including Curious George's First Day of School, Curious George's Dinosaur Discovery, Curious George and the Puppies, Curious George Visits the Zoo and Curious George Goes Camping, Kohl's also sells coordinating plush toys, a backpack, note cards and two cookbooks for just $5 each.

When a colorful and whimsical box arrived here so that we could see the quality and cuteness of the Kohl's Cares items in person, there was no doubt that we were going to love what it contained.
Inside we found Curious George and the Puppies, Curious George's First Day of School and the one and only Curious George himself.
The girls took one look at George and how soft and cuddly he is, and he was instantly a part of the family.
As if getting to snuggle and cuddle with Curious George wasn't enough, adding these two classic books to our collection has been wonderful. We have known and loved George for quite a few years now, so I have no doubt that these will be books that are pulled off of the shelf and enjoyed for many more years to come!
In addition to the merchandise program, Kohl's also features a Kohl's Cares Scholarship Program which recognizes more than 2,300 young volunteers each year for their amazing contributions to their communities with scholarships and prizes.
They also have the Associates in Action program, which encourages associate volunteerism and has donated more than $63 million to youth-focused nonprofit organizations to date; a hospital partner program that supports more than 160 partners nationwide; and fundraising gift cards for schools and youth-serving nonprofit organizations.

Other than information and the Kohl's Cares merchandise that I was provided in order to facilitate my review, I was not compensated or enticed to do this post in any way. This post is solely my honest opinion about these programs and products.
