We’re excited to share about the Green Your School Fund and to be part of the Tom’s of Maine #GoodnessCircle blogger program this year. We may receive free products and/or compensation for participation. However, all opinions expressed are my own.
Tom’s of Maine Green Your School Fund
We’re in the middle of summer here, but the first signs of back to school are popping up in stores around town. Say it isn’t so! I love school supplies but I’m not quite ready for them yet!
There is one back to school related thing I can support! It’s the fact that Tom’s of Maine supports students all year long!
Together with DonorsChoose.org, classrooms around the country are benefitting from the Green School Fund! They’re giving $1 million dollars to support environmental education in our schools!
Green Your School Fund Details
The Tom’s of Maine Green Your School Fund was started in 2016 and has supported nearly 300,000 students already! Kids are getting involved in hands-on projects that helping them learn more about the positive impact that can have on our world!
If you’re a parent, share this program with your child’s teacher! If you’re a teacher, it’s so easy to submit your classroom environmental project to the #GreenSchoolFund project!
Visit www.GreenSchoolFund.com to submit your project idea through DonorsChoose.org. Tom’s of Maine will match every citizen donation made to qualifying environmental projects automatically!
Once the project is fully funded, the supplies are sent straight to the school and the project can begin!
Helping Kids Learn About the World Around Them
I love how the Tom’s of Maine Green Your School Fund is helping support our schools. As a former teacher, I’m all about offering support to our teachers.
Tom’s of Maine supports all year round by giving 10% of profits back to helping people and the planet. So when we choose Tom’s of Maine products, I know we’re not only getting great products that work well for my family, we’re also helping create the $1 million fund to help make schools more sustainable through DonorsChoose.org.
It’s a pretty easy way to give back!
Even though school might be over, we don’t stop learning around here. I promised myself I would never be a full blown teacher to my kids (although Weston has been doing some reading and writing activities this summer). But that doesn’t mean we can’t continue learning like we do all year long!
We’ve been taking advantage of the sunshine and getting out in the yard more. We’re taking on projects like clearing space for a walkway made of river rock and planting new plants.
We’re learning about how to take care of plants and the animals in our yard. Even practicing skills like measuring as we do things to care for our own little piece of the Earth!
Learning doesn’t have to stop just because it’s summer!
(And if you do run into a rainy day, there are still fun things to do like shaving cream painting your own Earth!)
