Staying active can be pretty tricky to do. Time is always an issue. Scheduling and creating lists can help, but self-motivation is definitely key.
I’m not just talking about working out either. Staying active in the community is important too. Besides for the social aspect, the more people who are involved, the better off we all can be.
thredUP, my favorite online fashion resale shop, is launching a program called Raise A Hand For Teachers. Working with AdoptAClassroom.org, they’re recognizing teachers across the nation for their hard work and positive impact on kids.
Giving back to your community has never been easier. Starting today until August 23rd, nominate your favorite teacher by clicking right HERE.
Three lucky teachers will each win $2,500 for classroom supplies and $500 for shopping at thredUP!! 50 runner-up winners will receive $100 to thredUP. Those are huge prizes! And with as much of their own money that teachers already spend on their classrooms, this could really impact a special group of kids…not to mention the educator who inspires them daily.
I’m about to go nominate Julia’s Kindergarten teacher, Mrs. Bocka. Mrs. Bocka was Julia’s first school teacher and I so glad that she was. She really got my daughter excited about learning…Julia would always be sharing the funny stories that her teacher told her. But the biggest reason that I am going to nominate Mrs. Bocka is because she made me little girl feel special. I could list countless time during the school year, but the one that stood out actually happened last month, once the summer break had already started.
Many times when people are off the clock, they don’t think about work. This is usually NOT the case with teachers, and it’s definitely NOT the case with Mrs. Bocka. She sent Julia a very thoughtful note, just checking in and sending her best. But this small gesture meant something much more for my daughter.
And now it’s my turn to be active and show my appreciation with a simple nomination.
Who are you going to nominate?
