Hey there SONIC Lovers! I wanted to make sure you guys knew about SONIC having it’s Third Annual #ThanksTeach Campaign recognizing U.S. public school teachers. As you know, SONIC is a longtime supporter of public school teachers through its philanthropic initiative Limeades for Learning®. (Remember the $200 gift cards we just gave away to 2 lucky Oklahoma Teachers? )
This month, SONIC launched its #ThanksTeach social media campaign to recognize, celebrate and reward teachers throughout May in honor of Teacher Appreciation Month.
All month, SONIC has been sharing inspiring stories of real teachers making a difference in the classroom, and encouraging others to join in and say thank you to important teachers in their lives by sharing the hashtag #ThanksTeach and using our Smile to Say #ThanksTeach Facebook camera filter. In addition, SONIC has donated $1 million to public school teachers in markets from coast to coast!
“Everyone has a teacher who has done something – big or small – to impact their lives for the better, whether it was one of your teachers or the teacher of a child in your life,” said Christi Woodworth, vice president of public relations for SONIC. “Teachers play such a critical role in developing our children, but spend nearly $500 a year out of their own pockets to buy the supplies they need to do their jobs effectively. That’s why we started Limeades for Learning® and why we’re saying #ThanksTeach by giving another $1 million to teachers for Teacher Appreciation Month.
Throughout the month of May, SONIC will celebrate these unsung heroes across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube by sharing the stories of real public school teachers using the hashtag #ThanksTeach and encouraging others to do the same. SONIC also invites Facebook fans to Smile to Say #ThanksTeach via a Facebook augmented reality (AR) application that springs to life when the user smiles into the camera on their mobile phone, creating a video or photo that can be easily shared.
