TeacherWishList.com Launches This Week!



Even though we’re in a summer state of mind, ‘back to school’ season will be here soon! As you may know, school budgets across the country are being cut, and a recent Bounty survey found that 71% of teachers report bringing cleaning and learning supplies from home, and are each spending an average of $462 a year for their classrooms out of their own pockets.

So, what can parents do to help ease teachers’ financial burdens?

School Family Media is partnering with Bounty to launch TeacherWishList.com, a new, free service that provides an opportunity for parents to give teachers in their communities the essential supplies they need for the classroom.

TeacherWishlist.com launches this week – just in time for back-to-school - and now teachers can easily customize and share their class supply wish lists with a few simple clicks. Those who register will be eligible for:
·      The chance to win one of 100 $462 school supply grants from Bounty
·      The chance to win a $25,000 art classroom makeover (for schools with five + registered teachers)
·      Bounty coupons by mail

To find out more about TeacherWishList.com and to check out the engaging chatter about teachers’ spending visit www.Facebook.com/Bounty.

The educational funds should be put into the teachers' hands.
