I learned about teachers’ wish lists on Amazon, a registry for everything an individual teacher needs for their classroom, a couple of years ago. Since then, at the end of the summer, we set a budget as a family and clear a few lists anonymously.
But last year was a total mess for our teachers. I know for a fact, if it weren’t for my kid’s school teachers, I would have lost the last shred of sanity I was hanging on to. So I thought I would expand on our tradition and reach out to our readership to collectively support some of the teachers in The Well Dressed Life community.
We all know teachers spend an incredible amount of time, effort, and personal money outfitting their classrooms. But I never realized just how much effort and money goes into it until I started to see their wish lists.
Teachers pay for everything from the books in their library to the staple holding up the artwork that lines their walls. Some are even paying for all that and extras to make their classroom a safe place, like bulk packs of toothbrushes and disposable cereal bowls.
Over the weekend, I posted in our Facebook Private group, encouraging our teacher friends to share their wish lists in the comments. I took a portion of our July revenue and was able to clear their lists, but I know there is more we can do.
Clear a Teacher’s List
Here’s how we can help.
First, if you are a teacher in our community, please follow this link and share your wish list in the comment section of the Facebook post. Please only share it on the Private Page so we can keep track and stay organized.
Then, any group member can go into that comment section, pick a list, and purchase directly from it. Amazon takes care of everything. The gift is delivered directly to the recipient, whose address remains private.
You can spend as little as a few dollars on a pack of dry erase markers, a book, or some sensory toys. Every little bit makes a difference.
Our community, especially over in our Facebook group, is so kind and generous; I know collectively we can make a big difference, especially as our teacher friends head into another unconventional school year.
