One of the many reasons I love selling my teaching resources on Teachers Pay Teachers is the super-fabulous people I meet through TpT . . . the teacher-authors who sell their resources on TpT are passionate about education, committed to excellence, and some of the most genuinely caring and giving people you’ll ever meet!
For example, several sellers are working together to donate a percentage of their sales this Sunday, December 14, to their favorite causes and charities. I’ll be donating 50% of my sales to KIVA, a non-profit organization that strives to use the power of the internet to connect people who are in need with those who want to help. You make small loans – starting at just $25 – to people around the world (including right here in America, by the way!) who are working diligently to provide for their families or to pursue higher education. The recipients pay the money back so it can be re-gifted to someone else in need — continuing the circle of compassion, kindness, and empathy– all the big lessons and life-skills we hope to teach in our classrooms!
KIVA is not a charity, as the recipients of the loans pay the money back. In fact, KIVA has a 98% repayment rate and one of the best aspects of the program is this: When your loan amount is repaid, you can choose to cash your money out and use it in other ways, or you can re-gift the money to someone else in need!
Please visit Literary Sherri on TpT this Sunday, December 14, to support KIVA! While your shopping for resources for your classroom, check out these teacher-authors, too . . . all these sellers will be donating a portion of this Sunday’s sales to their favorite causes:
