Check out True Blue Schools to donate money to your schoolThis is a sponsored post full of information I know you will want. While I'm being compensated for writing by Georgia Natural Gas, I'm really doing it because I believe in value of a good education. Georgia Natural Gas tapped me as one of their Social Influencers to tell all my readers in the Georgia Natural Gas region about their True Blue Schools program which gives money back to local schools. Considering the cuts to school budgets, this money is desperately needed. (See below to try to win $50 for yourself too!)
My oldest daughter attends public school and I see the value of every dollar that comes in through school fundraisers and parent contributions. They have smartboards and a computer lab and a technology teacher and an accelerated reader program all because of "extra" funds the school collects through a variety of programs. True Blue Schools is one of those programs.
How it worksFor every Georgia Natural Gas customer (both existing or those who switch) who signs up for True Blue Schools, $5 will be donated to the school of their choosing (public or private). I just signed up myself after learning about this and it took about 1 minute. They even have a tool to look-up your account number! And this program is at NO fee to you. The $5 comes from Georgia Natural Gas so your bill remains the same as do their competitive rates. TIP: If you switch from another company, be sure to use the code TRUEBLUE and you'll save 15 cents per therm discount on gas service, in addition to the school of your choice getting $5 each month. And that my friends, is a true win-win.
My daughter's school has earned almost $2000 thanks to True Blue Schools! And now they will get $5 more each month because I signed up. Some schools have earned $5,000 or even $10,000 in just months. In fact, Georgia Natural Gas has donated almost $2 million since 2008! If more families signed up for this program perhaps we wouldn't have the need for the school fundraisers that irk me so. (No wrapping paper...please...no more wrapping paper.)
