origami bear and raccoon, made by one of augie’s teachers.
hello lovely readers! i am about to ask you for money, well, kind of. many of you have heard me rave about the squirt’s amazing school. i am constantly amazed by the dedication and caring shown by the faculty and staff.
i volunteer my time at the school quite a bit, and it is obvious that everyone there loves the kids they work with, and wants them to thrive.
one of the things the school has done to improve the quality of education the kids receive is to purchase an online curriculum to supplement the teaching the teachers are already doing. many of the students at the school have developmental challenges that preclude them from using a traditional desktop computer/mouse set up. for that reason, the school has chosen to purchase a curriculum that can easily be accessed on an iPad.
so, they need iPads for the classrooms. my awesome office landlord runs a business that repairs and refurbishes iPads (and lots of other gadgets). he is able to get used iPads for the school at a significant discount. but fifteen iPads will still run about $1500, and the school is on too tight of a budget to spend that kind of money.
Another parent and i have started a gofundme for this fundraising effort. so far we only have $40, and half of that is from me. so here is what i want to do. GIVEAWAY TIME!!!!
for each $5 donation,, you get your name in the hat one time. donate ten bucks, get two entries, fifteen dollars gets you 3 entries and so on and so forth. i’ll draw three names each week (until we reach our goal) and send those three people hand made (with love) sock monsters to enjoy!
i will do the first drawing on monday, november 10. to enter, go to our gofundme page and make your donation. mention phrogmom in the comments so i know you came from here. or let me know in the comments that you donated. thank you so much for reading all of this, and for maybe thinking about donating!
