Heard of Classwish?

ClassWish.org, an exciting new nonprofit, helps teachers and schools attract financial support from parents, local businesses, alumni and others in the community. I recently encouraged all of my teachers to set up an account (it is free). This is how it works:

* Teachers, visit ClassWish to create a Wish List of the supplies you need for your classrooms. It's as easy as shopping online.

*ClassWish helps you spread the word to parents and other supporters.
Visitors see exactly what is needed and how they can help.

*Contributions are tax-deductible and donors receive a receipt.
Many companies match employee contributions, and that can double the funding.

*Teachers submit a request online for ClassWish.org to purchase needed supplies.

*ClassWish has the supplies sent to you at your school.

*Wish Lists display all items ClassWish sends, so donors know how their money is spent.

I researched this thoroughly before publishing this post. I have spoken with some teachers who actually received a substantial amount of merchandise for their class. This is for real!
