Here at School on Wheels, we can’t believe it’s already November! That means that the holidays are coming quickly. We’re celebrating the spirit of the holidays this year with 10 Days of Giving!
Each day from November 23 – December 2, we have a different way for you to get involved with School on Wheels. Each of these opportunities will allow you to contribute to our programs and the kids we serve in a meaningful way. Giving back is fun and easy, and it has a huge impact!
Monday, November 23 – Kroger Day
Right in time for that last-minute cranberry sauce purchase: if you shop at Kroger, make sure to support School on Wheels by choosing us when you enroll in the Kroger Community Rewards program! Every time you shop, swipe your Kroger Plus card and our programs receive a portion of the proceeds. Enrolling is easy – click here to get started. Make sure you have your Kroger Plus card on hand, and search for us using our name, School on Wheels, or our organization number, 66739!
Tuesday, November 24 – Marsh Day
Register your Marsh card to benefit School on Wheels before you finish your holiday shopping! Each dollar that you spend allows us to purchase supplies for our students. To register, click here, enter your Marsh card number and enter our school code – 49398. After that, you’ll be supporting students experiencing homelessness in Indianapolis each time you shop!
Wednesday, November 25 – Wishlist Wednesday
As you are thinking about the delicious meal you are about to enjoy with your family and friends, please consider making a donation of snacks or other school supplies to benefit our students this #WishlistWednesday! Check out our Amazon wishlist to see our biggest needs. All donations are greatly appreciated!
Thursday, November 26 – Thanksgiving
We hope that you have a fantastic day spending time with your family and friends. Thank you for everything that you do for our students throughout the year!
Friday, November 27 – Black Friday // Target Day
If you’re like many of our staff members here at School on Wheels, you shop at Target all the time. Before you head out to snag the best Black Friday deals, make sure to register your Target card to benefit our students! Enrolling is easy – sign in to your Target Redcard account and search for us by name, or by our school ID number: 125704.
Saturday, November 28 – Spread the Word Day
We’re halfway through the 10 Days of Giving, but there are still five full days to get involved! We would love it if you could share the graphic below with your family and friends on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to help spread the word as we enter the home stretch of the campaign! While we are pushing these opportunities this month, the majority of them will continue to benefit our students throughout the year!
Sunday, November 29 – FundSponge Day
With Cyber Monday just around the corner, we wanted to let you know that you can support School on Wheels while you’re browsing the deals tomorrow (and every day)! Make sure to check out our Fundsponge page before you buy anything online to see if those retailers are willing to give a portion of your purchase price to benefit our students!
Monday, November 30 – Cyber Monday // Amazon Smile Day
Cyber Monday is here! While you peruse the fantastic deals that Amazon will have that day, make sure you’re checking them out on smile.amazon.com. If you choose School on Wheels Corp. as your charity of choice on Amazon Smile, we get .5% back on every purchase. It’s a win-win! If you have a hard time remembering to switch to Amazon Smile before you make a purchase, check out this awesome Google Chrome add-on that redirects every Amazon page to Smile.
Tuesday, December 1 – #GivingTuesday
Now that Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday have passed, it’s time for #GivingTuesday! Each year, on #GivingTuesday, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. We have something exciting coming to help us celebrate this year – check back later this month for more information!
Wednesday, December 2 – Brown Bag Lunch Day
We know that you’re getting to the end of your Thanksgiving leftovers, but we hope that you can make them last one more day! On this final day of our 10 Days of Giving, have your friends and coworkers support School on Wheels by bringing a brown bag lunch to work and donating the amount you would have spent on going out! If your business is interested in participating in the Brown Bag Lunch Day at your work, please contact Amber, Director of Development, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
While we hope you can help us by participating in 10 Days of Giving as it’s occurring, most of these opportunities are good any time during the year! Please consider signing up even if you aren’t able to participate right now.
