Del Monte "Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms" campaign {giveaway}

Time is running out for this fantastic promotion but you still have time to get involved if you do it now!

What is the Del Monte Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms campaign? Glad you asked. :)

It is a program to help support kindergarten thru 12th grade public school teachers across North and Central America with cash to purchase school supplies and fresh fruit. One hundred prizes totaling $1,000 each will be awarded to teachers who get the most votes in the "Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms" online contest at

Every Monday, for five consecutive weeks begining October 18th, ten teachers in the U.S. and Canada will win $1,000 each ($750 in cash and $250 in fresh fruit gift certificates) in the "Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms" online contest. The cash is to help teachers purchase much needed school supplies. The fruit is for classroom snacks and to encourage educational activities about fruit and healthy eating choices.

In an effort to support schools in less developed countries where many Del Monte products are grown, and where classrooms are also experiencing economic disadvantages, the "Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms" program will link winning U.S. classrooms with a school in Guatemala or Costa Rica. The 50 selected Central American schools will also receive $1,000 each for school supplies.

To enter, teachers must register online and submit a short essay on how the funds will be spent. Winning teachers will be selected solely on the number of votes they receive online – so rally parents and students, friends and family to get online and vote!

Become a fan of "Teacher Monday: Cash for Classrooms" on Facebook and Twitter to stay informed about contest news.

I think its great that Del Monte is investing in schools. I've been in them and its true, they are short on funding!

I also like that Del Monte is donating the gift certificates for teachers to buy healthy food. besides the fact that many students are missing out on healthy diets, fruit is also a lot more expensive this time of year, making it more likely that they are deprived of it.

I volunteer with an ESL program at some local schools and I can tell you, the computers they use/ the school uses are quite old and slow. They could really use some new ones, but the cost is more than they could afford.

Kids eating habits are established early in life and its important that they learn to enjoy fruit! Teachers have great influence and a program like this could have a lot of impact on the future dietary choices of these kids.
