A couple of weeks ago, I stumbled upon Adopt A Classroom, a site designed to help teachers who need extra funds for their classroom. I have previously used Donor's Choose, and a lot of my family and friends supported it. I told Josh I wasn't going to tell anyone that I was using Adopt A Classroom because everyone I know has helped so much. It took ten minutes to set up an account and a plea for funds. I didn't think anything would come from it since I wasn't using Social Media to plug it. But yesterday on my way out from school I got an email saying JCPenney sponsored our classroom. I was stoked! If your classroom is in need of supplies, I would definitely recommend Adopt A Classroom, while it isn't as widely known as Donor's Choose, it is more user friendly, requires less from the teacher, paperwork wise... and the money is ready to use as soon as someone "adopts your classroom". Our class is going to be able to use the money to help fund a ceramics component in our room!! (I am thinking we need to make some more clay gnomes!)

Hope you have an awesome Wednesday, I won't annoy you with HUUUUUMP Day... OK I just did.
