Giving Tuesday is here and I want to share with you how you can help support students and teachers by making a donation to DonorsChoose. This post was sponsored by DonorsChoose. All opinions are my own.
My son started kindergarten this year and we love his teacher! She’s kind and patient, going above and beyond to help make her classroom a place that fosters learning while also making it fun. Teachers are incredible people! Everyday they take our children under their wing and help give them the education and tools they need to succeed in school and in life.
Did you know that each year U.S. public school teachers spend over a billion dollars out of their own pockets to pay for classroom materials? Yes, $1 BILLION of their own money to help provide for their students! It averages out to over $500 per teacher, with many spending $1,000 or more.
DonorsChoose gives teachers a way to collect vital supplies and experiences without having to spend their own money. They make it easy for people to donate and support by sharing projects created by teachers. You can review projects and heartwarming personal requests on DonorsChoose and decide which one you would like to help fund.
As the most trusted crowdfunding platform for public schools, they vet teacher requests and ship the funded resources directly to the classroom. Charity Navigator and GuideStar have awarded DonorsChooose their highest ratings for transparency and accountability. It’s a cause you can trust.
On this GivingTuesday all donations will get a 50% match. For example, make a $20 donation on December 3rd and your donated amount becomes $30.
Every year, U.S. public school teachers spend over $1 billion of their own money on classroom materials for their students. That works out to an average of over $500 per teacher, and many spend more than $1,000. DonorsChoose is one way that teachers can access vital supplies and experiences for their students, without having to reach into their own pockets.
Visit our DonorsChoose page and you’ll find a list of teacher’s projects you can support. Help Mrs.Sims get basic hygiene supplies like toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap so her middle schoolers can feel more confident. Or help Mrs. Gallemore provide therapeutic support and services for her elementary school students.
I’m excited to support teachers and help them get the resources and experiences they need to succeed. Please check out DonorsChoose and help fund a project that inspires you to give back this holiday season and beyond. Let’s work together to create a brighter future for all children. One where they have all the books, art supplies, technology and tools they need.
