American teachers plunk down an average of $500 per year on classroom supplies and make plenty of sacrifices to ensure their students learn and grow. Thanks to Reddit's inspiring Gift Exchange For Teachers, you can be a part of giving back to these dedicated educators and putting a little joy in their lives via a present. Sign up by the morning of Tuesday, September 3, 2013 to give a gift, or if you're a teacher, sign up to get one (you certainly deserve it!)

    This was something that we did, and I was expecting our teacher to ask for the things that I think of as luxuries - an ipad for example. I was shocked to get a request for what I think of as classroom basics for kindergarteners. Mailing boxes of pencils, paper, crayons, and scissors to kids in Detroit is probably the best thing I've done all month. Liz, thank you for posting this.

      Thanks for sharing it there. Hope they got lots of folks signed up!

    Lots of steps to sign up but I did it and I shared it! Lots of people donated to the U.S. and I know many schools are in need in America, but I was thinking it would be good to go global too, so I donated to Mexico. What do you think Liz?

      The need in American schools is seriously great, but absolutely donate globally if you are so inclined.
