Think about some of the most memorable academic experiences while you were in school. Somewhere on that list is an amazing field trip that you took with your class that was an eye opening experience. I want to be able to provide those same types of opportunities for my students through the use of Google Expeditions. With Google Expeditions our class will be able to leverage virtual reality to have access to over 500 digital field trips to locations including Antarctica, Machu Picchu, and even the International Space Station.

In order to have access to these amazing digital journeys, our classroom needs the proper technology. That is why I am fundraising for a Google Expedition Kit that will be purchased through Best Buy. The Google Expedition Kit will provide us with with the following items:

- 20 Student Devices

- 20 Virtual Reality Viewers

- 2 Rapid Chargers

- 1 Teacher Device

- 1 Router

- 1 Case

- Geek Squad® White Glove Service

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 $224.00 (rounded up to the nearest dollar) for Best Buy's Google Expedition Kit

Best Buy Google Expedition Kit for 20 students (x1) $6,999.00
PledgeCents partner product sourcing & logistics $853.60
PledgeCents fulfillment & labor $426.80
WePay payment and processing fee $256.08
Total goal amount $224.00 (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 Google Expedition Kit that I can for our students so they don't miss out on this technology that we need.
