Teacher Clear the List Project – copy

Hey everyone…It’s hard to believe it’s time for school to start back but here we are again!

A few years ago we started a new project of posting teacher’s classroom wish lists. We had great success and are adding on this year for an even bigger opportunity to give back to teachers. So please join us again in supporting teachers who give so much of their time, energy and their own money to give their students every possible opportunity! If we can lighten their load and ease some of their financial burden by purchasing back to school supplies for them then let’s do it! Remember it takes a village and we can achieve so much more when we work together. We’ve tried to make this easy. I’m sure there will be a few glitches but we’ll work through them. It’s pretty simple just click their Amazon Wish list link and get started and we’ll be on the way to clearing some of these lists! We can all do something –purchase an item or two, clear a list, and most, of all pray. Thank you so much! You guys are the best!
