$5,000 Teacher's Back to School Shopping Spree July 2012

-- 2012-08-13 7:00 am --

Where did the summer go?!?


No one feels the pressure of going back to school more then teachers. This year will be no exception as more budget cuts take effect. As a society, we always ask teachers to do more with less.


Read what our CEO, Marc Joseph has to say about this in his Huffington Post article: http://ow.ly/cWplP


In July, we ran our annual back to school sweepstakes where people could nominate a teacher to win FREE school supplies. We had just over 1,200 entries! We received entries from every state. The contest was a huge success. We have similar contests every month to help non-profit organizations, schools, and small businesses. Our goal for the monthly contests are to help those who need it. It's a pay to forward effort to help those that have supported us through the years.
