I can’t even believe it’s time for back to school. It’s crazy how fast this summer went. I know my teacher friends are feeling the same way as they prepare their lessons and get everything ready so that first day will be perfect for both the kids and parents.
Did you know on average, teachers spend about $1,000 of their own money just to make sure their students have the resources they need to learn? That’s crazy! I knew they purchased supplies here and there but I guess I never really thought about how much they spent, I’m sure it adds up pretty quickly.
This is a sponsored post but all opinions are 100% my own. I believe this is a great way to support teachers!
This year, GreatClips is doing something I think is just fantastic (well two things actually!).. first, they’ve teamed up with AdoptAClassroom.org to give back to teachers and to help them with the financial stress they face while trying to make sure their students have everything they need for the school year.
That means that for every download of their free Online Check-In App, Great Clips will make a donation to AdoptAClassroom.org (up to $20,000) to help support teachers.
Check out this awesome video that includes two surprise classroom makeovers for two deserving teachers.
And secondly, they have a fun contest going on where YOU can win up to $100 worth of school supplies, delivered directly to your door! All you have to do is submit your back-to-school supply list. They pick a new winner every day until September 5, 2014 so you still have lots of time enter!
Tip: Be sure to confirm your email address when if you submit a school supply list because you’ll get a $2-off Great Clips coupon for entering the contest!
So Here’s How You Can Help Support Teachers
Download the free Online Check in App – Between now and September 5th for every download of the GreatClips Online Check in App, a donation will be made to Adopt A Classroom.
If you are unfamiliar with the Online Check-In app, this service lets you add your name to the waiting list at your local Great Clips salon. It’s not an appointment – what it does is let you add your name to the list before arriving at the salon to help save you time. You can download it here.
Plus this is a great time to try the Online Chick in App because many Great Clips salons are offering back-to-school pricing for haircuts! (Be sure to visit your local salon for the special pricing details)
