Leading shopping app ignites online program giving $15,000 to teachers
NEW YORK, Aug. 8, 2017 /CNW/ -- Flipp, the go-to shopping app used by tens of millions of shoppers to find deals and save money each week, today announced a program to ease the back-to-school burden for parents and teachers across the U.S. and Canada.
According to AdoptAClassroom.org, a not-for profit organization dedicated to giving teachers a hand by providing needed classroom materials so their students can succeed, one in five teachers spend $1,000 or more of their own personal income on school supplies for their classroom. In partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org in the U.S. and My Class Needs in Canada, Flipp is announcing a program to award fifteen teachers with $1,000 to be used to purchase necessary back-to-school supplies for their classrooms.
"It's common knowledge that the back-to-school season can be a stressful and expensive time for parents looking to find all of the items their kids need while staying on budget," said Charmaine D'Silva, VP of Marketing Communications at Flipp. "However, what many people don't realize is that this time of year can be equally stressful for teachers who are tasked with setting up safe and stocked classrooms for their incoming students - often on their own dime. Flipp wants to help out."
The ultimate tool for back-to-school shopping and saving, Flipp brings weekly ads from more than 1,000 retailers, leading coupons and an interactive shopping list to your fingertips to help consumers find deals and save time and money. With Flipp, shoppers can find deals on everything they need for the back-to-school season including tech, clothes, backpacks, dorm essentials, groceries to restock the kitchen, and more.
How the program works:
- Visit app.flipp.com/backtoschool and nominate your child's teacher by telling us how they go above and beyond.
- 15 deserving teachers will be randomly chosen from the nominations to receive $1,000 through Flipp's partnerships with AdoptAClassroom.org and My Class Needs towards setting up their classroom for the new school year, courtesy of Flipp. This Giveaway will be subject to the rules and regulations available at http://f.wishabi.ca/creative/BTS/Flipp_BTS-2017.pdf.
