When we think about the people who have made a difference in our lives, teachers often come to mind—our teachers we had growing up, our kids’ teachers, our teacher friends. Their hard work, dedication, and incredible stories inspire us on a daily basis. As we head into the busy back-to-school shopping season, we want to take a moment to recognize teachers for their hard work and the positive impact they make each day on our children’s lives. thredUP has partnered with to Raise A Hand for Teachers.

Teachers are extremely generous with their time and money, often spending out-of-pocket on supplies and even clothing for students who can’t afford these essentials. From July 15 – August 23, visit to nominate your favorite teachers(s) with a photo, video, or story. Three teachers will each win $2500 for classroom supplies and $500 to shop at thredUP. (50 more teachers will win $100 to shop at thredUP!). Nominate your favorite teacher today, and help spread the word to parents, kids, and teachers across the country!
