Let's Help Teachers Clear Their School Supply List!
Updated: Sep 1
Did you know that many teachers pay for a majority of classroom supplies out of their own pockets? Yes, it’s true! It's reported that teachers can spend as much as $1,000 a year on supplies for their classrooms. Thats why so many teachers have taken to social media to ask for help to pay for their classroom supplies. The #clearthelists campaign began last month, after teachers asked for help to buy supplies off their Amazon wish lists. Many of these lists include classroom basics like chalk, crayons, and markers.

We decided we wanted to help and after asking our followers if they knew of any teachers in need, we received these amazing responses. Scroll below to find a teacher in need of your support. Please donate if you can, we know the teacher you support will greatly appreciate it.
If you know of a teacher who could use some help for her supply list, see the directions below from an amazing article we found on Hip2Save!
Teachers, follow these steps to make your own classroom wish list on Amazon:
Choose the Wish list and whether you want the list to be private or public. You can also designate whether your list is for an organization and if so, you’ll have the option to provide the website address of the organization.
Click ‘Save’ and then you can start adding items to your list!
To add items to your wish list, simply browse Amazon for products and then click ‘Add to List’ under the Buy box on the right-hand side of any item’s product detail page.
Only list owners can make changes through Manage List. Both list owners and collaborators will be able to add and remove items.
If you are a teacher, make sure to share your list in our comments section below, so that our readers can see it too!
