OfficeMax, Max Moms & A Day Made Better

I am thrilled and honored to have been chosen to be a part of the Max Moms team. Those of you who read my blog and know me, know that I am passionate about education. More than that, I am passionate about making certain that my children's teachers do not have to spend money out of their own pockets to teach.

I work on fundraising for the school that my children attend. This year I am one of the chairs of the Silent Auction.

I promote literacy. I buy books for the classrooms. At least 10-20 per year.

I have begged people I know for printer cartridges. Even bought an extra one to give to a teacher when I bought one for our house printer.

I work hard to insure that those who take the time to educate my children, have the tools they need and hopefully more. I have partnered with some amazing companies to help me reach these goals.

I do what I can but I am always trying to do more. Nothing that I do can ever thanks these teachers enough for what they do for my children.

Enter OfficeMax with “A Day Made Better”

“A Day Made Better” is a national cause founded by OfficeMax and nonprofit Adopt-A-Classroom to lead the fight to erase teacher-funded classrooms. Annually in October, more than 3,500 OfficeMax associates surprise and honor more than 1,000 teachers at Title 1 schools across the country with a total of $1,000,000 worth of classroom supplies – $1,000 per classroom. Nominated by their principals, teacher recipients receive this honor for their exceptional contributions and going above-and-beyond as an educator.

The name, “A Day Made Better,” is derived from the concept that OfficeMax and Adopt-A-Classroom can make at least one day better for teachers by providing them with essential classroom supplies. Through more than 1,000 simultaneous teacher surprise events, the cause seeks to call attention to the issue of teacher out-of-pocket spending and motivate the public to take action by supporting local educators through Adopt-A-Classroom. “A Day Made Better” was first conducted in October 2007 and has since funded over 3,500 teachers and attracted donations for more than 10,000 classrooms through Adopt-A-Classroom.

Please consider visiting OfficeMax’s Facebook page and posting a comment on their wall. Tell them what you think of their Facebook donation campaign benefiting Adopt-A-Classroom and/or of the “A Day Made Better” program.

You can also follow the cause on Twitter. Consider sending out a tweet showing your support for the program.
