I had so much fun working on a little surprise for a friend!! She is a new middle school science teacher and was literally hired last week. Oh and did I mention that her school starts next week? It’s been a whirlwind week of prepping for her! Both lesson plans and classroom setup!
Anyway, she has been quite attentive to all the school supply sales happening and has been asking me about various items….
This worked well for me since I was able to secretly create a list of stuff to buy her without her knowing!
As a part of the Bag It Forward campaign I made a “BOO bag” for Miss Shuman! Actually hers was a BOO Box since one of the items I bought was a rolling teacher crate!
It was so much fun shopping for school supplies and then leaving them as a surprise on her doorstep!! I only wish every teacher could receive a fun Boo Box!
And in case you missed what the Bag It Forward campaign was…
Bag It Forward!
Bag It Forward is a campaign by Elmer’s to encourage donations of school supplies to help kids locally! You can check out their website to see all the great stuff people have donated! It’s very encouraging! In fact everyone can #BagItFoward, no blog post is necessary! Just upload a picture of the school supplies you are donating on the BAG IT FORWARD website! Whether its one thing or a bag full it’s all appreciated!
If you need help finding a place to donate the supplies to check out my list of Arizona Back to School Drives!
And with Facebook you can help for FREE!!
You can help support Elmer’s Kids In Need Foundation by “liking” them on Facebook and watching a video. Elmer’s will donate products for each “like” and video view they get through Sept. 1st. Products go to teachers in disadvantaged schools!
