While I'm on a "Teacher" kick, here are some other things teachers will be interested in to help them out in their classrooms.
Detroit Soup offers micro grants to creatives for programs that will help others. Everyone pays $5 for soup, bread and a vote. Usually four people/groups present. The idea with the most votes at the end of the evening receives the money collected at the door. Often $300-600! There are other SOUPS across the country.
Ferndale Soup started in 2012. https://www.facebook.com/FerndaleSoup
There is a Soup in Flagstaff Arizona. You can start your own in your town too!
Check into your local area at this link Sunday Soup: http://sundaysoup.org/
Back To School Sales are starting already! Why? Well, having taught in AZ, school starts in July there, so, national companies offer savings for families as early as the beginning of July.
