I really hope you pick Murphy high School We live in a rural area and we need all the help we can get. Most people around here are afraid to sign up for alot of things because of scams. So I did it for them I know my daughter could use extra supplies so I know there are more in her school Thanks so very Much for the chance


I would like to update my list using many of the same items as last year however – it shows them as “completed” as if parents have already donated.
Is there a way to “reset” the list without having to add and retype all of the same items over again?


    Hi Susan,
    Yes, there is a way to reset your wish list. Log into your account, find the list you would like to reset, hover your mouse over it and click “reset” – it will reset all the pledge quantities to 0. Please email us at if you have any questions!

Hi. I am encouraged by the wonderful generosity of teacher lists.
It is refreshing to see companies and organizations giving to teachers.
Education must be measured by our strengths. And by the creative minds of our children .We can only hope to influence them in a most positive way. thank you

I appreciate the opportunity to replenish the supplies for my children. We live in an area where donations and extra support are greatly appreciated and needed. Thank you for this chance.
