From Stand for Children (and for our SPS teachers):
On October 5th, DonorsChoose.org through a generous gift from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will distribute free $10 gift cards at local Starbucks stores. These cards can be redeemed and applied to local teacher requests for needed classroom materials and student projects. In addition to the free $10 gift cards, donations to support teachers classroom requests can be made directly through the DonorsChoose.org website.
Please visit your local Starbucks this Wednesday and donate to your favorite teacher. Click here for additional information on how to redeem your gift card.
Important: Gift cards will be applied to projects on a first-come, first-served basis until our grant is spent, so be sure to apply yours soon!
Among the King County Schools in this group are Seattle's SBOC, Hawthorne, Thurgood Marshall and Beacon Hill.
(Please, this is to help kids in our Seattle schools so no comments about Stand or Gates Foundation or Starbucks - except to say thank you.)
THANK YOU, Stand for Children, Gates Foundation and Starbucks.
