Nominate Your Teacher to Win $50 to OfficeMax for National Cause
On behalf of the “A Day Made Better” cause for teachers, you can nominate your favorite
teacher to win a gift card to OfficeMax for school supplies!
Teachers are really incredible! They touch so many lives every day and open the doors
to opportunity in every way, shape and form. I’ve gotten to know my kids’ teachers over
the past few years and have seen first hand their incredible contributions.
With school budgets cuts, teachers are taking matters into their own hands by
purchasing their own classroom materials. According to the National Education
Association, teachers are spending about $1,000 each year on supplies for their class,
which is pretty astonishing. Can you imagine if your job asked you to bring your own
tape, scissors, and paper? There would be a backlash, but somehow, teachers have
silently picked up the tab…until now.
That’s why I’ve joined the Max Moms for Teachers program to help create awareness
and give back to teachers. The Max Moms are working in collaboration with the
national “A Day Made Better” cause founded by OfficeMax and nonprofit Adopt-A-
Classroom to help erase teacher-funded classrooms. Annually in October, they host a
national event that recognizes and rewards over 1,000 teachers with a total of $1 million
in school supplies to help alleviate the financial burden and thank them for their hard
You too can join in this cause and give back to a deserving teacher by nominating your
favorite teacher to receive a $50 gift card for school supplies donated by OfficeMax.
You’ll also receive an A Day Made Better cause box, and we encourage you to purchase
supplies for your favorite teacher and surprise him or her in her classroom.
