"Thanks a Billion!"
Target Kicks Off a New Teacher Appreciation Campaign
Before you say farewell at the end of the school year, say thank you.
That's the message Target's sending to students and parents everywhere with its "Thanks a Billion" campaign, which invites guests to honor rock star teachers for all their hard work.
As part of the social campaign, guests are encouraged to share a brief message of appreciation through Target's Facebook page or the Thanks a Billion website, honoring a teacher who has made an impact on their life.
When a guest submits a note of gratitude (certain terms & conditions apply), Target will donate $25 to the teacher's school with the opportunity for each school to receive up to $25,000. But here's the best part: Target won't stop until it's given away a grand total of $5 million.
Here is how to participate:
- Step 1: Select your school | Where does your teacher work?
- Step 2: Thank a teacher | Who is the teacher and why are they so awesome?
- Step 3: Share your thanks | Tag your message with #ThanksaBillion...and make sure to share it with your teacher.
