It is hard to believe that it has been almost 8 months since the devastating tornado ripped through Joplin, MO.
This week I got an email from a very sweet kindergarten teacher from Joplin. Here is what her email said:
I teach in Joplin, which made worldwide news last May when our town was cut in half by an F5 tornado. Many of our elementary schools were destroyed or damaged, and as teachers, we have had a roller coaster year. I came from a meeting yesterday where many are struggling with the weight of all we are dealing with. My request is this: would you be willing to donate a created pack of your choosing to give away at a drawing at our upcoming district Kindergarten grade level meeting? The meeting is Monday and I am sorry for the short notice but I did not realize until the meeting how down everyone is feeling.
Well, of course, I said “YES!” and filled her email inbox with goodies.
Then I started to think (scary), I bet there are other teachers (besides kindergarten teachers) who could use a little love. Want to help? Here is how:
1. Send your TpT product or Teacher’s Notebook to Erica
2. Then link up here
Wouldn’t it be awesome if we filled her email with signs of love?
Fill free to grab the heart above to share with your readers. We have to act fast! Thank you in advance!
UPDATE: A) You guys are amaZING! B) Teachers pay Teachers has some gift certificates if you would rather donate those. C) I’m going to have to see if there is an option C for other donations that will go into the hands of the teachers of Joplin… I’ll keep you posted!
