MAMAS MAKING A DIFFERENCE: Month Two is here! For September, WE ARE TEAMING UP WITH THREE AMAZING BRANDS SO THAT YOU CAN SHOP FOR A CAUSE AND Help Classrooms in Need!
Here we are. Month two of Mamas Making a Difference. And I'm proud to say that while I'm waiting on some final reports still…….we will be funding a NUMBER of classroom projects from our first month of brand partnerships!
As many of you know, I am a teacher here in Los Angeles. I teach at a low performing, high poverty school. What does that mean? It means I see the face of true poverty everyday. It means that on Monday mornings, I am greeted by hungry children and some of the hardest working parents I know. It also means that as a teacher (on my NOT very high teacher's salary) I finance the vast majority of classroom projects out of my own pocket. There is no teacher wishlist, no asking parents for supplies or donations. It's not something they are able to contribute.
Last year, I thought of an idea. A big one. I wanted to give families and small businesses a way to support teachers and help classrooms in need. Enter Mamas Making a Difference. Each month we team up with a handful of brands. Those brands? Give 10% of their sales from their focus item each month to classrooms in need (via Donors Choose).
This month we have some amazing businesses teaming up to help us make a difference. You can buy an adorable pair of earrings, a fall romper for your kiddo, or some of the cutest wedges I've ever seen (for grown ups or kids)…..and know that your purchase made a difference in the lives of children here in the United States (and their teachers).
US teachers spend $500+ on classroom supplies. One teacher is asking YOU to help give back! #mamasmakingadifference Click To Tweet
