. Since we’ve homeschooled up until this year, I stayed somewhat oblivious to how much the public schools were in need of funds to supply their classrooms efficiently. This year, however, with my kids attending a charter school, I have not gone a day without being reminded of what is still needed.
Our school is brand new and, while the classrooms look beautiful, I know that we are in need of much, as are many other schools in California and throughout the United States. What can be raised through fundraising efforts seems like a drop in the bucket, but every little bit certainly helps.
That said, I have been on the hunt for all of the sweepstakes and contests that could potentially mean more funds for our school, so I was excited when SheSpeaks presented me with the opportunity to spread the word about Macy’s Classroom Makeover Sweepstakes where the winning classroom will win a $25,000 upgrade! I entered our school right away and now through September 15th, you can nominate YOUR kiddos’ school for the makeover… No voting is involved and $25,000 is on the line, so don’t delay!
How to Enter:
Head to Macy’s Facebook page and “like” the page
Click the Classroom Makeover Sweeps tab
Fill out the entry form & submit
Share the contest via Facebook and Twitter
SheSpeaks is also hosting a #MacysB2S Twitter Party TONIGHT. You can learn more about the Sweepstakes, join the chatter about back-to-school, enter to win a Macy’s gift card, and more. I hope you’ll plan to join us as we kick off the school year in style!
