It is critically important that my students have daily access to high quality technology in order to successfully prepare for the 21st Century. Without daily access, my students aren’t able to take advantage of the amazing digital opportunities that are available to them. This includes everything from high quality content that helps them improve their reading fluency to programs that promotes computer programming skills. These are just a few of the reasons why I want to purchase a Tablet Bundle for my students.

With Insignia Tablets in our classroom, my students will have daily access the internet and all of the learning apps that they normally use in the computer lab only once a week. This will allow them to have a high quality technology center in the classroom for the first time. Through Best Buy Education I can purchase a Tablet Bundle for my students at a discounted rate and also receive free shipping. This Tablet Bundle will provide our classroom with access to the following items:

- Insignia 10.1" Tablet 32GB (Quantity 10)

- 1yr Geek Squad Commercial Accidental Protection (Quantity 10)

- Insignia Flexview Folio Case (Quantity 10)

- Insignia Stylus (Quantity 10)

Your generous investment to our fundraiser will open a world of opportunities for my students that they will not soon forget. If you are not able to make an investment today, please still consider sharing this through your social media channels as it increases the likelihood that we reach our goal.

Here is the breakdown of our goal of $1,890.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar) for the Best Buy Tablet Bundle

Best Buy Tablet Bundle - 20% discount (x1) $1,594.60
PledgeCents partner product sourcing & logistics $189.00
PledgeCents fulfillment & labor $94.50
WePay payment and processing fee $56.70
Total goal amount $1,890.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar)

The amounts calculated above are used to ensure the fundraising goal covers all fees. Actual fees will be calculated and collected on a per transaction basis, therefore total amounts may vary once the fundraiser ends. Calculated fees consist of a 10% sourcing fee, 5% fulfillment & labor fee and 3% processing fee.

If we do not meet our goal...

I will purchase as much of the tablet bundle that I can for our students so they don't miss out on this technology that we need.
