Back 2 School Surprise Boxes Return

back2school septemberLast summer, a team of 28 fantastic volunteers put together 100 amazing Back2School buddy boxes for nominated teachers from across the country. I’m really pleased to announce that the scheme is back, but bigger and better.

You can read more about last year’s scheme here and here.

Last year the recipients were extremely pleased with their exciting surprises just as we were sending them. However I must admit organising volunteers, nominations and boxes was hard work and a lot of money, effort and organisation. This year to streamline the process we’ve set up a Crowd Funding page and a day in the holidays has been set aside for packing and sending to all those nominated.

This year you can still nominate a school colleague or teacher you know that deserves a treat and donate to a great cause that welcomes them back to the new school year with a wellbeing surprise.

All of the money donated will go towards creating and sending boxes, improving the website (just £22) and purchasing #Teacher5adayBuddyBox branded packaging.

The nomination scheme is open to all school staff in the UK, please do not feel you can only nominate a teacher; support staff and office staff are just as appreciated and deserving of a wellbeing surprise.

We look forward to all the nominations (last year the messages had me in floods of tears, both in sadness and joy), it was a pleasure to be able to make so many people happy at the start of the school year. We’d love to do the same again.
