Making the World Cuter: Feel Good-Help a Teacher

A blog where one woman is on a mission to make the world cuter, one kid, cupcake or crafty thing at a time.


Feel Good-Help a Teacher

We had a little playdate for a good cause today.

We all brought school supplies to donate to a teacher in the area, and then voted on one teacher to get the loot. We are going to bring it to them in the next week or so after all those who couldn't make it, bring the rest of their supplies.

I know I homeschool my own children-but I am a supporter of public education and the efforts that the teachers and school systems make to help raise kids with a good knowledge of the world around them. I went to public school and there are many teachers who stand out in my mind that truly made a difference. I gladly raided my closet of fresh school supplies for someone else who can appreciate the smell of a new box of crayons!

We also got a gift bag from Office Max with some fun stuff inside to say thanks for supporting teachers. It was a lot of fun to get the kids together and do a little bit of service while we were at it...and I LOVE getting office supplies. Did you know that teachers spend an average of $1200 of their own money in their classrooms each year?

I didn't, but it doesn't surprise me all that much. The teachers that made a real difference in my life were dedicated and you could tell that they really wanted to make that difference.

Office Max and Adopt a Classroom are doing something really great and giving $1000 worth of supplies to 1000 different teachers this next month!

My friend Carissa at Good n Crazy is a Max Mom and is giving away a $100 gift certificate to a deserving teacher.

Do you know a teacher who is dedicated, hard working, loves what they do and who could use a little extra help? $100 can go a long way in school supplies!

All you have to do is go to her blog-read the post and leave a comment with who you would like to see win the gift certificate and why.

It will make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside if your teacher gets the card and finds out what you think of them, wouldn't it?

Now clickety on

This is so awesome! As a former teacher, I can definitely attest to how much of my own money was spent providing the very best for my students! Teaching is definitely not a 9-5 job, teachers don't get to just go home at the end of the day and forget about work for the evening, and they are hugely underpaid for what is expected of them! Thanks for posting this!

I almost went into teaching because I was so inspired by those few special teachers that I had. I have no doubt I would have been spending my own money on those kids if I had gone through with it (and lamenting that I was underpaid!).
