$5 Friday for North AL Schools

August 6

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 12:00 AM on Friday, repeating until August 31, 2021

students doing assignments in class at school

Every Friday, a small group of awesome people get together to support a local teacher and her students. In the spirit of community crowdfunding, one project from a public school in North Alabama is selected on and they try to fund it with as many donations of $5 as possible. Often these teachers’ requests are about to expire and have received little to no money – we try to turn that around.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
-Helen Keller

Want to Join?

Go to this Facebook Group and join it.
Set up a reminder for $5 Fridays on your phone to check the group every Friday morning. The point here is quantity of donors, not the amount individuals donate. Joining the Facebook Group is you making a commitment to donate the price of a fancy coffee to one local classroom per week. That’s it.

Please share the group & help spread the word! Love this concept? We owe the idea to the original $5 Fridays national group.
