Here are tips on attracting more donations
Many people want to help school children. All you need to do is let them know what your students need and how they can contribute through ClassWish.org. Here are some proven tips that will help you attract more donations.
Your Wish List page
Be sure to provide a photo and an introductory paragraph, and add at least a few items to your wish list. Look how effective this can be:http://classwish.org/teachers/15726-Mark-Thackeray
Many teachers get donations from friends and co-workers. Be sure to share your wish list on Facebook and Twitter at least once a week.
Do you have a blog? Do you have friends with blogs? A post and a web banner help attract attention and donations.

School PTA or PTO
The school PTA or PTO is typically the glue between the school and the community. Make sure they know about ClassWish.org. They can create their own wish list, promote donations on the School Needs page, and encourage donations to your Wish List.
Ask the school to display a banner on its website linking to its ClassWish.
