Disclosure: As an incentive to participating in this campaign I was provided with a $200 DonorsChoose.org gift card and a $100 Sonic gift card. Regardless, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.
It’s Teachers Appreciation Month and to help bring awareness to it SONIC is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Month through its Limeades for Learning philanthropic initiative and I highly encourage you to join in.
SONIC recently launched a $1 million donation match with DonorsChoose.org to help public school teachers get the essential supplies they need to inspire their students. You can learn more about this on the Limeades for Learning blog and when you donate SONIC will match your donations dollar for dollar.
I’ve participated in the Limeades for Learning campaign a few times now and with this week being Teachers Appreciation Week I’d figured I’d let you guys know about this campaign in case you’re still wondering how to show your appreciation to your child’s teacher.
How SONIC Is Celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week
In addition, to their donation matching campaign through DonorsChoose.org, SONIC is also offering every teacher a free Route 44 Drink or Slush with their purchases made using the SONIC app. The best part is even if you just appreciate a teacher you can qualify for this free and tasty treat as well.
All you have to do is just download the SONIC app and use the code TEACHERS for a free Route 44 drink or slush with any purchase when you order ahead. This offer is available until May 31, 2019. It is limited to one free drink or slush per guest and you can see the app for additional details.
Why I Love SONICs Limeades for Learning Campaign with DonorsChoose.org
As a mom of three kids, celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week, can get kind of hectic when trying to follow the guidelines/suggestions they send home from school. However, with the SONIC Limeades for Learning Campaign, we were able to make a donation to the music teacher, which was a way for the boys to show appreciation to a teacher who is probably often forgotten during teacher appreciation week and help them be able to get some new music equipment.
Earlier in the year, I helped a teacher get a Botley coding robot for their class. I find the DonorsChoose.org website to be super easy to use and once the campaign is fully funded, they purchase the products and ship them to the teacher, which makes it easy on their end as well.
Therefore, if you haven’t had a chance to do anything for Teacher Appreciation Week, or month, yet, consider donating via the DonorsChoose.org website. It’s simple to use, quick to make the donation, and you can make sure that your contribution is going to something that the teacher needs and will use.
SONIC Limeades for Learning $200 DonorsChoose.org Giveaway
Public school teachers don’t get the recognition that they deserve. Therefore, ten years ago SONIC partnered with DonorsChoose.org to help them get the support they needed. Through this initiative, SONIC has donated more than 11 million dollars and supported more than 27,407 classes and provided more than 822,210 students with learning materials and teaching resources. It’s really something good in my opinion.
Furthermore, being someone who has had the opportunity to donate to classrooms a couple of times and enjoyed how it made me feel to help a classroom, I’m also doing a $200 DonorsChoose.org Gift Card Giveaway. One of you lucky readers is going to have the chance to spend $200 on DonorsChoose.org helping the classroom, or classrooms, of your choice. To enter the giveaway, fill out the form below.
