How about adopt a classroom? They aren’t as big as donors choose but it’s worth a try. I signed up a long time ago and one time someone donated $50 for my classroom. I try to stay under a certain amount in hopes someone will donate. The website is adoptaclassroom .org. Good luck!


Sadly you are not alone ..

I’m trying to stay positive, but it’s lonely out here!
