The Puzzling Piece Fundraiser
Good evening everyone!
I'm writing tonight to share a very important cause that I am taking part in.
I recently accepted my first teaching job as an Autism Spectrum Disorders teacher in a local Elementary School. While researching technology that is available to help students with autism, I just couldn't ignore the prevalence of studies that show a strong benefit of the use of an iPad in the classroom, especially with students with disabilities.
After contacting numerous organizations, I found a great program called The Puzzling Piece which helps raise money for Autism Awareness by selling gorgeous necklaces, keychains, corkscrews and more.
The best part is, teachers and families who work with students with autism can participate in the program by doing their own fundraising. If participants sell 60 pieces, The Puzzling Piece will provide that classroom (or home) with an iPad!
I began participating in The Puzzling Piece just over a month ago, and I am already almost halfway to receiving an iPad for my students! I am now reaching out to people beyond my close circle to try to get those last 30 pieces.
I am asking you to help out by purchasing a Puzzling Piece to raise money for Autism Awareness and help provide the students in my ASD classroom with their own iPad. If you do decide to participate and order a piece, PLEASE let me know through a comment on here that you have done so so that I can be sure to thank you personally.
I need as much help as I can to reach 60 sales, so buy a piece for yourself, your family and friends, and pass on the word!!!
To buy a Puzzling Piece, follow the instructions below. The most important part is to enter my full name (Amy Spears) before checkout!
