ClassWish offering teachers a chance to win!
More than 100 educators in K-12 schools will each win $1,000 of classroom resources: books, computers, musical instruments, art supplies, sports equipment, science equipment, etc. from ClassWish. We would love to see this funding go to teachers in New Jersey, so we encourage you to enter for a chance to win. After all, you can’t win if you don’t enter. If this were an infomercial, we would write, “Wait! There’s more!” Indeed, there is. Teachers enter by simply creating a Wish List at http://ClassWish.org. That Wish List also attracts tax-deductible contributions from people who care about kids, and many companies match employees’ donations, which can double ─ or even triple ─ their funding.
