Q1. How can I tell if I’m the first educator at my school to sign up in the 2019/2020 school year?
A1. If you are searching for your school when signing up and see that it has already been registered, that means another educator has already signed your school up! You’re welcome to still register to participate, but you won’t receive a gift card.
Q2. I’m not receiving my confirmation link to finish registering my account.
A2. Make sure to check your spam and junk folders. The subject line of the email is “Confirm your Teach Kindness Registration”. If you haven’t received the confirmation link, you can get in touch with the Teach Kindness team at firstname.lastname@example.org
Q3. What if I wrote Donors Choose or donorschoose.org in the ‘Where did you hear about us?’ box?
A3. As long as you wrote some variation of DonorsChoose, you should be all set! If you forgot to write anything in the box, you can reach out to the Teach Kindness team at email@example.com
Q4. When will I receive my gift card?
A4. You will receive an email containing next steps from the Teach Kindness team within two weeks of registering. If you were the first educator to register your school, you will also receive a $100 gift card by email.
