"During this time of uncertainty, teachers are going above and beyond to create safe and welcoming learning environments, whether in-person or virtually," said Christi Woodworth, Vice President of Public Relations for Sonic. "The Limeades for Learning Fall Voting Campaign is an opportunity for our guests to be a part of this great cause and see firsthand how teachers are flexing their creative muscles and inspiring their students."
Guests receive one automatic vote daily for a teacher’s resource request, upon signing up with a valid email address, but can earn extra votes throughout the campaign through the following options:
- Visit your nearby Sonic Drive-In to receive a bag sticker code worth two votes
- Vote 10 times and receive an email of three bonus votes to be used on the website
"Teachers are now using DonorsChoose to request resources in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and we’re heartened to see how educators are working to give students a sense of normalcy," said Charles Best, founder of DonorsChoose. "We’re particularly grateful for this year’s annual Fall Voting Campaign in partnership with Sonic as we strive to make important teacher requests a reality."
Vote once a day, now through Oct. 25, 2020 with a valid email address. At the end of each week, the teachers’ request with the greatest number of votes will receive a portion of Sonic’s weekly donation of $250,000, totaling $1 million at the close of the campaign.** To learn more about the campaign or cast a vote to a teacher in need, visit: LimeadesForLearning.com.
