Our loyal Facebook fan and teacher needs your help

-- 2014-03-27 1:00 am --

Facebook is an amazing tool to meet new people and help others.

Today we are honored to give a helping hand to one of our biggest fans on Facebook, Mrs. Julie Ahern, a second grade teacher from Andrew Cooke Magnet Elementary School in Waukegan, IL. Mrs. Ahern won $500 in merchandise from DollarDays in our May 2013 "Nominate Your Favorite Teacher" promotion. She was so thrilled to win and buy supplies for her classroom! Her class sent us this photo and a handmade thank you card signed by every student---it is a treasure for us at DollarDays, as it reminds us that we are helping others. The card is on display in our office. Since meeting Mrs. Ahern and her students through the Favorite Teacher promotion, we have exchanged many conversations via Facebook and we have even visited her classroom. She is an amazing teacher with a heart the size of Texas. She's the kind of teacher you hope your child would be lucky enough to have for second grade.

It's no secret; we are a BIG fan of Mrs. Ahern! This is why we are calling on you to give her a hand---it's only a mouse click and will literally take five seconds! Julie was nominated by one of her colleagues for an American Federation of Teachers Everyday Heroes Award. She is one of the five national semi-finalists! (WOW!) The finalist will be determined by a daily voting contest that ends on April 20. The winner will be able to go to the summer AFT convention in Los Angeles. Julie would LOVE to represent her community of educators and visit California for the first time.

Ready to help send Julie to the American Federation of Teachers Convention? Click here and Julie's name is the very first nominee. Click the radio button to the left of her name, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the "submit" button. You can vote once a day through April 20, 2014.

Thank you for helping Julie Ahern receive an honor that she so deserves!
