As many of you know, I began my professional life as a teacher, first teaching English and literature to 6th, 7th, and 8th graders and eventually ending my time in the field of education teaching 8th grade English along with 7th and 8th grade drama. Along the way I tutored kids in everything from basic math to SAT prep and spent countless hours directing school musicals. I know first hand that no teacher works only forty hours a week and “summers off” is truly a misnomer. For this reason, I love charities that support teachers such as DonorsChoose.org and have written about them in the past.
DonorsChose helps fund school projects in support of education and literacy, and LeapFrog – also an early literacy advocate – is supporting this worthy charity. LeapFrog is no stranger to giving. Since 2009, LeapFrog has donated more than $1.5 million in Tag Reading Systems and books to the classrooms of more than 20,000 students. But they don’t want to stop there. Instead, they want to help bring $100,000 total in Tag Readers and books to classrooms in need, and they’ve partnered with DonorsChoose.org to help teachers who want Tag Readers and books for their classrooms.
Today’s Friday Featured Giveaway combines a charity that I love and a brand that my entire family loves! LeapFrog has provided me with a $25 gift card to support a school of my choice via DonorsChoose, and one Resourceful Mommy reader will have the chance to do the same.
One reader will receive the following:
- $25 gift card to DonorsChoose to support the school of their choice
- LeapFrog Tag reader and six books
This giveaway is open to U.S. readers age 18 and older (no P.O. boxes, please) and ends February 17th at 11:59 p.m. ET. Books shown in the image are not necessarily the books in the prize pack.
