What do you do to support teachers in your neighborhood and nationwide?
I, personally, go out of my way to support teachers and the reason I do so, goes back to my first day of first grade. You see, my Mama was not-too-well-off and for some reason one year she did not supply me with school supplies. I remember walking into my first day of first grade with nothing but an empty backpack. My face turned bright red as the teacher asked us all to gather supplies to get ready for the day. When she noticed that I wasn’t moving she didn’t make a big deal or call me out, instead, she walked to her desk, pulled out a box of supplies and placed everything I needed on my desk. She smiled and gave me a little wink and went on talking to the class. That moment is forever engrained in my heart and now that I am an adult with kids of my own, I not only want to be sure to supply my children with the supplies they need to succeed in school, I want to do what I can to support teachers nationwide.
According to a statistic from the Education Market Association, an estimated 99.5% of all public school teachers use their own money to equip their classrooms, frequently at a cost of more than $400 per year! Now, as much as I appreciate teachers doing so, it saddens me that they have to! This is why I am happy to partner with Staples to let you know about their recent collaboration with DonorsChoose.org and Katy Perry, which aims to inspire the public to help support teachers and classrooms in need by making a donation in Staples stores or online. Additionally, you can enter the #StaplesForStudents sweepstakes for the chance to win a life-changing $50,000 scholarship along with a chance to meet Katy Perry at a VIP Winners Celebration in Los Angeles!
Katy Perry and Staples are working to donate one million dollars to DonorsChoose.org, a charity that helps teachers get what they need to supply their classroom so that they can encourage students to learn and grow. Want to know how YOU can help support teachers? All you have to do is visit your local Staples store to donate or go to StaplesForStudents.com.
Oh, and what are your thoughts about winning a $50,000 scholarship and a chance to meet Katy Perry? Well, just by spending $25 or more in any Staples store you will receive a unique entry code on your receipt to enter the sweepstakes online at StaplesForStudents.com.
