#PCbacktoschool: Fulfill your Amazon Wish List!
That time of the year is creeping back up on us again... back-to-school! Some of you might just be getting ready, and some might already be back in the game! Either way, we know that 99% of you still have an endless list of items that you'd love to purchase for your classroom this year.
We understand that back-to-school season can be a bit overwhelming... the planning, the set up, building connections with your students, professional development, just plain getting back into it all again after the summer... and we've come up with another way that we'd like to help!
Pretty much everyone uses Amazon nowadays (uhm, hello prime!), and you can find just about anything on their website! That's why we are choosing 5 educators and funding their Amazon wish lists!
Here is how this competition will work:
From August 19th to August 26th, the top 5 fundraising pages with the most points will be able to submit their Amazon wishlist (up to the prize amount) to PledgeCents and have it fulfilled for FREE!
- 1st place = $125 worth of products from Amazon
- 2nd place = $100 worth of products from Amazon
- 3rd place = $75 worth of products from Amazon
- 4th place = $50 worth of products from Amazon
- 5th place = $25 worth of products from Amazon
- Create a fundraising page = 1 point
- $1 raised = 1 point
*Below the picture section on your fundraising page, you will see different buttons that you can click to share your fundraiser. We understand that not everyone on your friends list is able to invest in your fundraiser, but even just by sharing they are helping your page to gain exposure!
Don't forget that PledgeCents has 0% platform fees! You will receive whatever amount you raise on your page even if you don't meet your goal, unlike other sites. We also don't have a minimum or maximum goal requirement... so there's really nothing to lose!
The leaderboard below will be updated daily. Be sure to check in!
