As the year winds to an end, you’re probably setting goals and hopefully trying to enjoy a little of your time off. Maybe you’re also reflecting on the past year: the moments that made you laugh, cry, and cringe. We want you to take these reflections and use them to fund your classroom.
Many of your friends, family members, and acquaintances are using the last days of the year to decide which charities and non-profits to support. Did you know donations given to your classroom on AdoptAClassroom.org are tax-deductible? Do your potential donors know?
If not, now is the time to teach them! Between now and 12pm (Central) on New Year’s Eve (note: 12 pm is NOON, we’re going kid-friendly with our 12 so you can spend the evening celebrating) we’re giving you a chance to win up to $2,500 for your classroom!
There are Two Ways to Enter to Win up to $2,500 on New Year’s Eve
1 – Ask everyone you know to give to your classroom during the month of December. Every donation to your classroom will earn you one virtual drawing ticket.
All adoptions from individual donors, foundations, or businesses will be entered to win!
2- Share your story. Post your #IAmATeacher story on your Facebook and/or Twitter. Make sure to include all the requirements for one virtual drawing ticket:
- Share an #IAmATeacher story. For inspiration, check out these great examples.
- Include a link to your classroom page on AdoptAClassroom.org (this is the only way you’ll get donations)
- Use the hashtag #IAmATeacher
- Tag AdoptAClassroom.org. On Facebook: AdoptAClassroom.org. On Twitter: @Adopt_Classroom.
- *BONUS POINT* Include a picture in your post for an extra virtual ticket.
MOST IMPORTANTLY: Encourage everyone to SHARE! Each share of your post will earn you one virtual drawing ticket. So if 100 of your friends and family share your post, you’ll be entered 100 times.
**UPDATE: Don’t forget to set your post to public, or we won’t be able to count your shares!**
*In order to be eligible you must be a K-12 teacher registered on AdoptAClassroom.org.
