What is #Teacher5adayBuddyBox?
#Teacher5adayBuddyBox is a strand of the #Teacher5aday initiative with a focus on volunteering. A buddy box is quite simply a box of goodies that gets posted to a buddy.
Who can get involved?
The scheme is open to teachers, educators and other member of school staff that are concerned with improving their wellbeing and the wellbeing of others.
It’s particularly awesome if you still love sending and receiving snail mail and are happy to volunteer.
How does it work?
It’s quite simple. You sign up and get matched with a wellbeing buddy, you make contact with them. Swap addresses. You send each other ‘buddy boxes’ throughout the year. They receive their ‘buddy box’. You make them smile. The hardest part is deciding what to send.
What happens once I sign up?
You can sign up anytime but may have to wait for a wellbeing buddy to be available to be matched with. Once your buddy has been found you’ll be informed by email/Twitter and you can take it from there.
Swap addresses, send your ‘buddy box’, make each other smile.
Remember this is completely voluntary, it is your responsibility to contact your wellbeing buddy and to send out your “buddy box”. You must cover all costs involved.
This is completely based upon all participants wanting to sign up and take part out of the kindness of their hearts. I’m afraid I nor anyone involved in #teacher5aday can accept responsibility if you do not receive a buddy box in exchange. Therefore please only sign up if you intend to send. Thank you.
