Have you ever tried Donor's Choose? It's the best thing to come to teacher's aid since, well, the pencil with a brand new eraser!
Donor's Choose is a website where teachers can write up projects and ask for donations for classroom items. Donors can then choose to help you fund your project.
Earlier this year, I wrote a project asking for some seat sacks to help my firsties organize their supplies The wonderful company Chevron funded my project and a few days later I received the seat sacks! Look how wonderful they are!
