Show Teachers Some Love on February 15 7PM CT

Join us for a virtual fundraising event to show teachers some love!

You’re invited! Join us on February 15 at 7PM CT for an hour of fun, inspiration, and learning—all in support of education! Our virtual gathering will feature education experts and teachers discussing solutions to current issues in K-12 education. 

It has never been more difficult to be a teacher. Amidst a multi-year pandemic, social unrest, and climate catastrophe, teachers are preparing students for an uncertain future during an uncertain present. Together, we can honor our teacher heroes and raise additional funds to help them purchase the tools and materials they need for their students’ success.

Tickets and How to Get a Gift Box

Tickets are sold on a sliding scale of $10-$500 to encourage attendees from all communities to participate. We ask that you give what you are able. When we all participate, we all thrive.

If you are unable to attend but want to contribute, you can make a donation.

When you purchase a ticket and make a donation over $100, you will receive a mailed gift box to open and enjoy during the event.

You can also purchase a virtual table for you and 9 other participants.
