I Need Your Help

The WONDERFUL charter school I work at in Jersey City, NJ is having its annual spring auction. Because we are a charter school we only get 65% of the funds that the failing public schools get. Completely not fair, but that's a topic for a different blog. The auction is such a fun event because the students are not allowed to come and the parents get really excited bidding on items that have been donated. Some things they bid on, Yankee tickets, a Nintendo Wii, dinner at local restaurants, and so much more. I know that times are tough for most people, but I truly believe that all selfless acts are rewarded. If you, or anyone you know would like to donate items for people to bid on, I would glad accept them. I'll also give you our tax ID number so that you could deduct your donation. Perhaps your chef wrote a cookbook? Maybe you can get a hold of a set of pots and pans. Anything that is new is welcome. My classroom is making a themed basket of picture frames, albums, and anything else related to photography. I would also take things for my classroom basket. Thanks so much!!

Please email me if you would like to donate or learn more about my charter school. desperatechefswives@gmail.com
