As a former teacher I’m very excited about today’s project for a few different reasons. First, I LOVE buying school supplies. Even though I’m no longer in the classroom I still find myself stocking up on pens, pencils, notebooks, and folders for the house and, of course, we need to buy Connor’s school supplies for the new school year. And, you all know I’m obsessed with unicorns so I had to find a fun way to add unicorns to boring school supplies.
I’m also very passionate about buying brands who give back to teachers and school. So, when I recently found out about the BIC Bucks for Teachers Program, I knew I had to get in on the cause. As part of the The BIC Bucks for Teachers program, BIC USA Inc. is donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org. DonorsChoose.org allows school teachers from across the country to request much-needed materials and experiences for their students. Right now there are thousands of classroom requests that you can help bring to life just by purchasing BIC products while shopping for school supplies. This awesome site makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need.
I found a few in the school district that I used to work for and it’s sad to see teachers asking for pencils, markers, backpacks and even stools for their students. I even found a teacher at the school I taught at for 15 years asking for books. Why are teachers struggling to buy items needed for students in the classroom?
That’s where you can help!
In three easy steps, you can get $10 back from BIC to donate to your local teachers on DonorsChoose.org.
Step 1: Buy $10 or more of BIC stationary products at any major retailer.
Step 2: Snap a photo of your receipt and submit it to BIC Bucks for Teachers to receive a BIC Bucks $10 donation code.
Step 3: Use your BIC Bucks $10 donation code to donate to a classroom project of your choice on DonorsChoose.org/bicbucksforteachers.
And, now that we’ve bought our school supplies, scanned our receipts, and helped raise money for a classroom in need, it’s time to decorate our school supplies. I had to create a fun new unicorn SVG file – I just had to do it.
This One of Kind Unicorn Cut File is the perfect way to jazz up all those boring school supplies. Add it to your notebooks, folders, clipboards, pencil pouch – petty much anything big enough for a unicorn.
Don’t forget to visit BICBucksforTeachers.com, scan those receipts by September 30, and redeem those BIC Bucks. There are teachers counting on you!
