Today Is the Day to Shop Teachers Pay Teachers and Here’s Why

All proceeds are going to some great organizations.

If you’re a Teachers Pay Teachers fan, then get your carts ready—the TPT Day of Giving will take place on September 27.  Many TPT authors are coming together to make a change, donating 100% of their profits to charities like The Alzheimer’s Association, The Prison Library Project, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Heifer International, Autism Speaks, Together Rising, Charity Water, and The American Cancer Society.

To learn more about the day, check out this page. Also, search the haghtag #TPTDayofGiving on Instagram. Here are some of our favorite finds.
