Love to Joplin UPDATE

You guys are amazing!
Here is an email I got from Erica in Joplin

Ok....I am breathing...but just barely.  It is 9:40ish and I just finished going through the 107 emails I received since your post.  So far, we have received 4 gift cards, 5 TpT certificates and 276(!!!!!!!!!) units/activities!  Never mind, I just fainted!  :-)

I made a list of everything sent in and my plan for all other grade's items is to forward them to their respective grade level chair with an explanation.  They can distribute them however they wish.  :)

I am still so overwhelmed with every one's generosity.  Thank you again for organizing this.  I'm off now to change my piddly little PowerPoint I made up to introduce the giveaway.  I have A LOT more to add!

Many of you have asked about other ways to help out.  Here is another way to donate.  Just click on the image to take you to their donation page.

You can also find specific Joplin projects to support here:

I am so proud that you all showed up to share your talents and caring spirit!  Together we are mighty!

I'll be back later with my "Peek at my Week"... I'm running a bit behind!


  1. Thank you so much for the update! I am so glad that I found your blog through this wonderful linky party. I am your newest follower!

  2. Hi DeeDee:
    Thanks again for giving us the opportunity to do something for the folks in Joplin. I can't believe you wrote Thank You comments. We should be thanking YOU!
    Thanks for the heart-warming experience. It made me love the BlogWorld even MORE!

    Finding JOY in 6th Grade

  3. Would love to hear about the Joplin teacher meeting and giveaway excitement.
