How to Celebrate Your Favorite Teachers During Teacher Appreciation Week

2:00 pm CST: We did it! Thank you for helping us reach our goal of 100 classroom adoptions.

There are still plenty of reasons to donate now. Your gift will enter your teacher to win awesome giveaways, plus make a huge impact in their classroom. Read on to find out how.

It’s that time of year again: the one week when teachers get the recognition they deserve year round. At, Teacher Appreciation Week (Beginning Monday, May 2) is our favorite time of year, because we get to celebrate our favorite people!

We invite you to join us in celebrating the teachers you love. Check out how to get involved in the fun:

1. Adopt Your Favorite Classroom and They Could Win Big! 
Tablet Giveaway (1)When you make a donation of any amount to your favorite classroom between May 2 and May 6, your teacher will be entered to win!

GRAND PRIZE: 10 Insigna Flex Tablets and 20 pairs of earbud headphones, sponsored by Best Buy® Education.

*The average teacher spends nearly $600 of their own money buying classroom supplies. This amount will support them for the year.

2. We’ll Match Your Donation on Teacher Appreciation Day

On Teacher Appreciation Day (Tuesday, May 3), the first 100 donations will be matched up to $50! Sponsored by Carmichael Lynch and Spong PR.

You can help your favorite teacher receive more funds, just by spreading the word. Encourage your friends and family to give by sharing your giving story with #IRaisedMyHand and asking them to join you.

3. Celebrate Their #WorthIt Moments

We’re inviting teachers to share the moments that make teaching #WorthIt. Watch out for their responses on social media, and be sure to say thank you for all that they do!
