Redditgifts For The Teachers 2014

Redditgifts For The Teachers 2014

Every year, the Husband and I buy various school supplies and drop them off in donation bins at local coffee shops and the like. This year, I’m doing things a little differently! I’ve signed up to send a care package of goodies to a teacher in need via redditgifts!

For the third year in a row, redditgifts is holding a special gift drive for all teachers who sign up! Similar to our fun handmade swap, in that anyone who signs up as a gifter is responsible for sending out a care package filled with whatever goodies you deem worthy for a teacher in need. Signups close on August 18th, so register today to help a school in need!

Want to participate? Here are the instructions provided by redditgifts, in case you want to see how it works!

Will you send some supplies to a teacher?

Here’s how:

  1. There is no minimum or maximum value or suggested spending amount; we just ask that you send something thoughtful that will help a teacher in their classroom!
  2. Sign up for the exchange and choose “I want to send a care package.”
  3. The morning of August 18th, 2014, we will close signups and our computer program will choose whom you will be sending a care package to.
  4. Once you come back here to pick up your teacher’s information, you’ll have until September 5th, 2014, to ship your gift. When you ship it, keep a receipt and come back here to tell us you’ve shipped it.
  5. Once your teacher posts the care package you sent, we’ll send you an email with a link.

Are you a teacher in need looking to receive a care package?

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Sign up for the exchange and choose “I am a teacher and want to receive a care package.”
  2. The morning of August 18th, 2014, we will close signups and our computer program will choose who will be sending a care package to you.
  3. When the person matched to you ships your care package, we’ll send you an email letting you know.
  4. When you receive your care package, come back to redditgifts and post an amazing thank-you note, hopefully with photos!

I don’t know who my teacher will be yet, but I’ve already gone shopping! Check out all the loot I bought for his/her classroom! I hope he/she is able to use it all!
