This Let’s Start The School Year Write Printable is part of a sponsored post on behalf of BIC and DonorsChoose.org through The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.
As a kid, I always looked forward to the new school year as it meant new back to school supplies. There’s something oddly satisfying about clean backpacks, fresh pens, and untouched pencils.
And now, as the mom to kids going back to school, I get a different but equal thrill when it comes to back to school supplies. Especially when we can start the year write by giving back, too.
As part of its BIC Bucks for Teachers program, BIC USA Inc. is donating $100,000 to DonorsChoose.org, a crowdfunding site for public school teachers. To support the program, simply purchase $10 or more of BIC ® stationery products through September 15. Then, receive a $10 BIC Bucks donation code to donate to a classroom project of your choice.
DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner in America create classroom project requests and you can give back to any project that inspires you. I’ve personally donated to DonorsChoose.org a few times before. There are so many local classroom projects to choose from, it’s a wonderful way to know where exactly my donations are going to. And let’s face it, teachers deserve all the help they can get when it comes to teaching our kids.
How to Donate to DonorsChoose.org with BIC
1. Buy $10 or more of BIC ® stationery products (before taxes or coupons) at any major retailer.
2. Snap a photo of your receipt and submit it on BICBucksforTeachers.com to apply for a $10 BIC Bucks donation code, while supplies last.
3. Use your DonorsChoose.org donation code to contribute to your classroom project of choice on DonorsChoose.org/bicbucksforteachers.
Thanks to BIC, it’s an easy way to get the new school year started write. And you can show your own teacher an extra bit of thanks with our Let’s Start The Year Write Free Printable Tags and Teacher Gift Idea!

Then, cut the tags out. The letters are left open so that you can use the colored pens to fill them in.
Then punch a hole and attach to a pen with a bow of twine. This makes a great first day of school teacher’s gift and a wonderful way to start the year write! Even better, though?
