A new school year has begun and with it come the multitude of fundraisers. They aren’t as bad as when I was a kid and schools sent home fundraiser packets the first week, but they do cost money which is something I have little of at the moment.
If you find yourself in the same boat you’re probably wondering why I’m even talking school fundraisers if I can’t afford to donate. Well, I’ll tell you why. If you’re a Facebook user you can help your school at no cost. Target has started a promotion to send $25 gift cards to schools and will send up to $10,000 per school. It’s called “Give with Target” on Facebook. All you need to do is visit its Facebook page, type in your school’s name, city and state then vote for it. It’s a once a week vote. For every 25 votes a $25 gift card will be sent to the school.
Target is giving out $2.5 million through its FB giveaway and if you’re not going to vote for a local school I’d appreciate you voting for my kids school. Just click here. I try not to give out a ton of personal information online, but I’m making an exception for my school of choice: Cleveland Elementary, Elkhart, Ind. If you vote for your school, thank you. If you vote for mine, thank you. Either way, all of our kids benefit. Make a difference and help a school today.
