Facebook, Twitter, and the Really Good Stuff Kids
Can you believe that July is almost over? For some teachers, school has already started or the new year is just days away, but for others, there is still a month left of summer vacation. No matter how many days you have left before heading back into the classroom, this week is going to be a fun one here at The Teachers’ Lounge and on Really Good Stuff’s social media sites.
We’re just a few hundred fans away from 50,000 on Facebook and when we hit that milestone we will be celebrating! The contest will start once we reach 50,000 and last for 50 hours. At the end of 50 hours, 50 of the people who enter will be randomly selected to each win a $50 Really Good Stuff gift certificate. 50,000, 50 hours, 50 people, $50! Will you help us by sharing our Facebook page with your friends and family, please?
We’re also stretching to 5,000 Pinterest fans this week. Do you pin? Follow us on Pinterest for great ideas, products, and exclusive contests!
#TeachChat will be on Wednesday night at 9pm EST/8pm CST. This week we will be talking about the first day of school and sharing some great ideas for getting to know your students, setting up class rules and procedures, and starting the year off in a really good way. We hope you will join us for great conversation, fun, and, of course, Really Good Stuff giveaways! Find out how to join and see a list of upcoming chat topics here.
We are heading into the final weeks of the Show Us Your Summer with the Really Good Stuff Kids Contest! Last week’s winner was Becki G., who took Reese and Rosely out on a jet ski! This week we’d like to see Reese and Rosely with your favorite ice cream flavor. That’s right, we’re giving you the perfect excuse to eat ice cream (or gelato or shaved ice)! Print out Reese and Rosely, snap a picture of them with your favorite frosty treat, and submit it for a chance to win a $25 Really Good Stuff gift certificate. Good luck. Read more here.
We would also like to ask you to help us celebrate the achievement of two of our Really Good Stuff employees, Diane March and Patricia Osborn, who trained so hard to participate in The St. Vincent’s Medical Center Foundation SWIM Across the Sound Marathon to fight cancer and support survivors. They, along with their teammates, raised over $10,000 to participate in this 15 mile swim relay. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate yesterday and with 4-6 foot swells in the Sound, officials had to cancel the race. Ladies, we are so proud of you and congratulate you on your dedication, perseverance, and the amazing example you set for all of us! We will be there to cheer you on next year!
