Proud to be a teacher!



   Our fundraiser was a huge success!!! Words cannot express my feelings right now. A week ago, I had an *idea*. I wanted  to donate $25.00 to the victims of the awful tornado that hit Moore, OK last week. I knew that it wasn't much, but wanted to do my part. Then, I randomly thought, "What if I organize a fundraiser"...I certainly did not expect it to do this well. I am SO proud of the education community. We all came together. From the teacher authors who donated their products and blogged about the fundraiser, to the people who donated and everyone in between...my heart truly is grateful to you. Today, a $29,394 donation was made on behalf of Teachers throughout this great nation. I was so PROUD to be an American, a teacher, a woman, and a blogger. This whole process just goes to show that one idea CAN make a difference.  God doesn't plant the seed for us to waste it! 
I give all of the credit back to you. You donated your hard earned money. You helped me spread the word. We came together and accomplished something so wonderful.








Some people have asked me if I am keeping a portion of this donation. I want to be clear, 100% of the money went to American Red Cross OKC Earmarked for Moore, OK! 


If you donated and did not receive your product, please e-mail me at benoitcreated@gmail.com. Also, PLEASE Check your spam and junk folders!!


So tonight I'm going to  laugh with my family, relax, eat Chick Fila french fries (If you follow my fitness blog you know how big of deal this is) and thank God for the thousands of blessings I have in my life.

Thanks for going on this journey with me friends! God Bless!

Teachers Love Oklahoma



You know when something horrible happens, how we stayed just glued to the TV. All of the terrible and tragic things our world is faced with breaks my heart. But when I saw those little kiddos being carried out of that rubble...my heart literately broke. I just kept thinking about my family, and how truly blessed I am. Life can throw us all curve balls, and we all have days that we think we just have it so bad. Then, something like this happens. Like what just happened across OK.
My hubby kept saying "Ash, how many people do you think are homeless?"
I really, really do not want to think about those numbers. Or the number of parents that are burying their little guys.
I finally decided, with tears in my eyes, to turn to my friends in the blogging community. Within MINUTES..I had so many people offer to help.
So here we are  offering a fundraiser. This is your chance to give back and receive a tremendous amount of teacher created products.



I will take donations until May 28, 2013!!! 

For a $25.00 Donation, you will receive over $250 worth of teaching products! ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO THE RED CROSS OKLAHOMA CITY!!!
