We love our public school teachers! They are often underpaid and undervalued – wouldn’t you agree? Here’s an easy and FREE way you can help support public teachers with SONIC’s Limeades for Learning program!
This is a partnered post. All opinions are my own.
How to Help Teachers for Free by Voting at SONIC’s Limeades for Learning
Recognizing public school teachers needed more support, SONIC Drive-In partnered with DonorsChoose.org ten years ago to create Limeades for Learning. During the fall voting period (now through Sunday, October 27), SONIC puts its $1 million donation in the hands of SONIC fans, asking them to decide where the funds go by voting for teacher projects at LimeadesforLearning.com.
Through Limeades for Learning, in partnership with DonorsChoose.org SONIC has donated more than $13.1 million, providing learning materials and teaching resources to impact nearly one million students.
Helping is simple! Sign up via email. It takes seconds to complete and cost you $0!
There are three ways to earn votes for teacher projects throughout the Fall Voting campaign:
- Vote once daily after signing up with a valid email address
- Visit a SONIC Drive-In to get a bag sticker code worth two votes
- Vote ten times to receive three extra votes via email
Projects with the most votes at the end of each week will receive funding while remaining projects get a chance to be fulfilled the following week as votes roll over.
I was thankful that SONIC helped me spread the love by donating to four teacher’s projects on DonorsChoose.org. I chose projects like fifth-grade aquaponics to musical instruments to third-grade technology needs. Many times on DonorsChoose.org you will find that teacher’s projects are matched by other companies willing to help too, so three out of my four donations actually doubled in value!
Would you like to help a teacher in need? Voting is an easy and free way to do that, but I’m also partnering with SONIC to offer one lucky reader the following giveaway:
Enter for your chance to win a $100 DonorsChoose.org and $25 SONIC gift card!
Not sure how to enter my giveaways?
Don’t forget to head to SONIC’s Limeades for Learning contest to vote now through Sunday, October 27 for these very deserving teachers!
