Great news about the Elmer's "Bag It Forward" campaign: now Facebook users can help!
Elmer's has pledged to donate $10,000 to Adopt-A-Classroom and, at first, only blog posts were accepted as a form of support. However, you can now create a Facebook Note to help raise $10 towards the $10,000 goal.
So if you have a Facebook account, here's what you can do write a Facebook Note worth $10:
- Log in to Facebook and at your profile page, there's either 1) a Notes tab or 2) the option to go to Notes by clicking on the + sign.
- Include the Rules. Write a quick message about the purpose of creating this Note and share the Note with friends (nothing fancy required - you can just say you're creating the Note to help Adopt-A-Classroom). Then copy and paste the campaign rules (see them below).
- BEFORE you publish ... change the privacy setting by going to "Note Privacy" which appears just above the Publish button. Make sure you've selected "Everyone" so that it's a public note (no other privacy settings for your account will be changed).
- AFTER you publish... show Elmer's that you've created the Facebook Note! Copy and paste the URL for your post here: http://bagitforward.org/do
Click here for an example (you'll have to log in to see it).
And that's it! You'll have helped to raise $10 for Adopt-A-Classroom, towards our goal of $10,000.
Deadline is Friday, September 10th so please create your note today if you'd like to help!
