 The more we buy/share, the more money we'll be able to donate!!! I would love you if you could help me out with my fundraiser by blogging, pinning, tweeting, and sharing via other social media.  My class has set a goal of collecting $5,000 by Feb. 12th for MAKE A WISH.  They are working really hard to collect money this week and have reached about $500.  We have a long ways to go and I really want to show them how we can pull together to help a child's wish come true.  I've collaborated with a few dozen teachers to create three bundles of teaching products to purchase (K-2, 3-5, and 6+ ).  Link in the first comment.  They are only $25 and are valued at over $65.  Please take a few minutes to share this.There's also a giveaway to win this EXCLUSIVE Melonheadz Illustrating Wish Upon a Star clip art set, a Starbucks gift card and a TPT gift card.  Head on over to enter now.  Don't forget to help out by sharing and buying the bundle.  I'll be forever grateful and my class will certainly appreciate the time and effort you've taken to help them.  Thank you so much!  XO
