As a pre school teacher myself, this campaign is near and dear to my heart! We are living in such a hard time right now. Thank you to LeapFrog and VTech for providing these we some resources!
AdoptAClassroom.org DonationAs schools remain closed, many parents are getting a fuller picture of the important role teachers play and the scope of their responsibilities. To support educators faced with the challenge of recreating the classroom from home, VTech Electronics North America has pledged to match all donations, dollar-for-dollar, made between March 31 and April 3, to AdoptAClassroom.org‘s COVID-19 Disaster Relief Fund, up to $50,000. The fund will be disbursed to high-needs teachers and schools impacted by COVID-19. AdoptAClassroom.org is working directly with educators, schools and vendor partners to identify their needs and get tools in the hands of students to make sure the learning doesn’t stop.
