Teachers: Meet Katy Perry, Win $50,000, Fly to LA! Join #StaplesForStudents

IMAGE DISTRIBUTED FOR STAPLES - Global pop star Katy Perry discusses the importance of supporting teachers during the #StaplesForStudents press conference on Thursday, April 21, 2016, in Los Angeles. Continuing its long-standing commitment to celebrating and supporting teachers through the Staples for Students program, Staples teamed up with Katy Perry to announce a $1 million donation to DonorsChoose.org, a charity that has funded more than 700,000 classroom projects and impacted more than 18 million students across the U.S. (Photo by Casey Rodgers/Invision for Staples/AP Images)

When I received a call asking if I’d help spread the word about the partnership between Staples, Inc., DonsorChoose.org, and Katy Perry, I couldn’t say yes fast enough.  After hearing the passion Katy Perry had to help teachers, I knew this was a message that had to be heard by as many educators and supporters of education as possible.  To hear this message, enjoy the 1 minute video below… from Katy herself!

How YOU Can Help:

Did You Know…

An estimated 99.5 percent of all public school teachers use their own money to equip their classrooms, frequently at a cost of more than $400 per year (Education Market Association).  

“When I teamed up with Staples in 2014, I learned firsthand how desperately teachers need our support – many of them even dig into their own pockets to provide simple tools that we would expect to already be available in our classrooms. So when Staples approached me again this year, I jumped at the opportunity because I saw the lasting effect our collaboration had on DonorsChoose.org and thousands of teachers and students.” – Katy Perry
