I also need:
1 - A short statement, from the teacher informing me that she / he have been buying school-supplies and / or snacks out-of-pocket.
2 - Please, also state that your wishlist on Amazon.com has a delivery-address which is your classroom and not your home, even during summer break.
3 - Please state that your Amazon.com wishlist does not include any items which may be hazardous or harmful to minors in any way.
4 - how did you hear about Classroom Giving ?
48 hours after submitting your request: Please check the site to confirm that your classroom's listing is live, that your classroom's info is correct and that the link, to your Amazon wishlsit, works!
This is not required. If you wish to make it easier for ClassroomGiving to promote your classroom's listing on social media, you can send me your Twitter handle and your facebook name.
A FEW TIPS ON USING AMAZON WISHLISTS (just tips, not requirements) :
At the top of the list, put items like: Paper, Pencils, Markers, Reading books, Hand-Sanitizer, Snacks, Crayons. Items which have been bought off the list, disappear from the list.
Your Amazon wishlist may expire for lack of activity and you may have to re-create it in the future.
Your ClassroomGiving.org listing will never expire, there is no need to renew it. If you have a new Amazon wishlist, just send me the new link (give@ClassroomGiving.org)
Once you receive supplies, you may choose to thank the generous givers. Track them down in your Amazon wishlist, which lists those who viewed your list, or by reading the gift-card. They should be listed to the left of it. Some choose to remain private. You can also, send Thank-You notes using the scan-codes.
Do not make your wishlist too long: 25 items tops. Once you received a few items, you can add more.
