Every August my chiropractor has an art supply drive for me & my friend Julie ( http://artchattermatters.blogspot.com/ ). He has a special day where anyone that brings in $20 worth of supplies(or gift card) gets an adjustment. Also, any new patients during the month of August can get all their initial x-rays and such for the $20 worth of art supplie. AMAZING, RIGHT?!?!!? It is a true blessing to us. These are the actual supplies that I received (Julie got about the same amount/supplies). We also received 7 gift cards each!!!(Hobby Lobby and Wal-Mart!!). So if you are in the Nashville Metro area...go to Dr. Ed Thomas at Total Body Healthcare, Inc. HE IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!
Amazing! I'm still lucky that our supply budgets have not been cut that much the past few years.ReplyDelete
OOH you just reminded me to make an appointment with my chiro-dude! Fix my back please Dr. Chad!ReplyDelete
That's incredible! How did that come to be? Did you ask or did he offer? My budget this year went from $1200 to $800 for a school size of 800 kids. That's a pretty significant cut. I need to brainstorm fundraising ideas!ReplyDelete
What a great idea! It's great to have such good community support for your program. Another way I save money on supplies is by asking the classroom teachers to donate to the art room at the end of the year. It works great! More on that here:ReplyDelete
