Here’s a quick way to support teachers and students while you take care of your usual household shopping!
From August 1, 2014 through August 31, 2014, Lysol will donate 5% of all retail sales of their products sold at Staples and Staples.com to fund classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org. Funding will be applied as a half-off Double Your Impact match offer for project requests at high need schools.
Priority will be given to teachers at schools where nearly all of the students receive free or reduced lunch and who have not previously had a project funded on DonorsChoose.org. Projects posted by August 6th, 2014 will be considered for the offer. Lysol will donate up to a maximum of $100,000 and a guaranteed minimum of $50,000 for this campaign.
You work hard to instill healthy habits at home, but it’s equally important to reinforce those in the classroom. With today’s kids spending an average of 30 hours per week at school, teachers and parents need to work together to establish healthy and fun learning environments at school. The team at Lysol is passionate about helping to keep families healthy at home, at school, and everywhere in between.
Here’s more about the Healthy Habits Program from Lysol:
At Lysol, we’re always looking for opportunities to educate students, teachers, and families on healthy habits. From basic hand washing to sanitizing lunchboxes and school supplies, we believe prevention is always better than a cure.
That’s why we’ve partnered with the National Education Association (NEA) and the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA) to launch the Healthy Habits Tour. This unique public health initiative makes it fun and easy for students to learn how to reduce the spread of illness.
The Healthy Habits Tour
With the Healthy Habits Tour, we’re taking health on the road. Our Healthy Habits bus visits schools across the country to promote germ education. Students visit a series of interactive stations, where they learn how thorough hand washing and other healthy habits can keep germs at bay.
Healthy Habits Week
Healthy Habits Week is a nationwide educational effort to teach healthy habits to kids. Taking place September 22-26, 2014, we work hand-in-hand with teachers and parents to teach children about health and hygiene through fun activities and simple lessons. Healthy Habits Week is supported by a rich collection of educational materials created in collaboration with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), available for free online at www.lysol.com.
