Nonprofit,, offers an easy gift that’s needed, meaningful, and tax-deductible

The situation is so dire that devoted teachers spend an average of $1,200 a year of their own money to provide just some of the basics students need to explore their potential and thrive.

In challenging times like these, yet another coffee mug, picture frame or fruitcake isn’t the holiday gift your child’s teacher most needs.

A new nonprofit,, presents a solution: Thank the Teacher Gift Cards, which can be redeemed for classroom supplies. This welcome gift lets parents take the financial burden off of teachers and also helps children—including their own. Imagine the impact as we channel to classrooms some of the hundreds of millions of dollars normally spent each year buying traditional presents for teachers.

Thank the Teacher Gift Cards from offer yet another benefit: since they represent donations to a nonprofit, they are tax-deductible. Now, that’s something no traditional gift or gift certificate can offer.

Parents can order Thank the Teacher Gift Cards from Teachers can visit the site to redeem them for the classroom resources they and their students need.

These Thank the Teacher Gift Cards are needed, they’re appreciated, they’re smart, and they make a big statement: that we care about our kids and their dedicated teachers.

This holiday season you can do more than just give a gift—you can show you really
