Thank a Teacher and Help End Teachers Out-of-Pocket Spending

Share your great teacher story and Bing will donate $5 to DonorsChoose.org - plus a chance to win an HP TouchSmart computer.

On average, teachers spend more than $1,000 out of their own pockets to fund classroom projects, and with impending budget cuts this number is expected to rise even higher. Bing aims to help teachers get the materials they need to provide all students with a great education.

When you submit a comment about a teacher who positively impacted your life (or the life of a child) at www.bing.com/education, Bing will give a $5 donation to help fund a teacher’s classroom project on DonorsChoose.org. It’s simple: share a story about your favorite teacher, and pay it forward to another one. We all know a teacher who inspired us to become who we are today – what’s your story?

All you have to do is:

  • Visit www.bing.com/education (coded link)and submit a comment about a teacher who positively impacted your life or the life of a child you know. You may comment on up to five teachers.
  • Receive an email from Bing with your$5 donation code and link to DonorsChoose.org <link to http://donorschoose.org>.
  • Decide what classroom project to fund with your $5 donation from Bing.
  • Search for your comment on the Bing map. In June, Bing will send every teacher their comments in a congratulations letter.
