This post is sponsored by SONIC® Drive-In. However, all opinions and enthusiasm for the SONIC Limeades for Learning initiative are my own. I hope you’ll join SONIC in celebrating teachers during Teacher Appreciation month.
Be sure to read down to the bottom of this post, because there are a lot of awesome ways you can join in and help teachers – including matching donations and a DonorsChoose.org giveaway. Plus, a special offer for a free Route 44® Drink or Slush!
I’m so excited to partner with SONIC to share how we can all help in making a difference for teachers. Our public school teachers face many challenges. It is a job that requires a lot of patience, dedication and a passion for teaching. I worked for a short while as a substitute teacher, and quickly realized I lacked the patience and ability required to be effective. Teaching is truly a labor of love.
Unfortunately, our teachers sometimes have to work with limited resources. I know both of my children have had teachers who regularly dipped into their own bank accounts to pay for classroom supplies. Programs like SONIC’s Limeades for Learning really make a difference in helping public school teachers get the essential supplies they need to inspire their students.
Teacher Appreciation Month – Join SONIC in Celebrating Teachers!
SONIC Limeades for Learning
Recognizing public school teachers needed more support, SONIC® Drive-In partnered with DonorsChoose.org eleven years ago. In 2009 SONIC launched Limeades for Learning.
Limeades for Learning® is a national award-winning initiative to support U.S. public school teachers in local communities. Since the launch of SONIC’s Limeades for Learning philanthropic campaign in partnership with DonorsChoose.org, SONIC has donated $11,902,421, supported more than 27,407 classrooms, and provided learning materials and teaching resources to impact more than 822,210 students.
Starting Wednesday, May 8, SONIC is launching a $1 million donation match with DonorsChoose.org to help public school teachers get the essential supplies they need to inspire their students. Your followers can learn more on the Limeades for Learning blog and donate. Then, SONIC will match their donations dollar for dollar!
Donating to support teachers is easy. Simply, visit the Limeades for Learning projects page to browse all projects posted by SONIC teachers, select a project in need of support, and click Donate. Then, SONIC will match your donation dollar for dollar. Visit the SONIC Limeades for Learning Blog to learn more.

$200 DonorsChoose.org Gift Card Giveaway
SONIC generously provided me with a DonorsChoose gift card to use at my discretion. A simple search on the DonorsChoose.org website resulted in a variety of projects at my daughter’s elementary school that are in need of funds. I was able to fully fund a project for music books for the music department. SONIC also provided a $200 DonorsChoose gift card for me to give away!
