FREDERIQUE CONSTANT HONORS EDUCATORS NATIONWIDE FOR TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK
May 3, 2021 (New York, NY) – Frederique Constant is proud to offer their continued support of the nonprofit organization, DonorsChoose, and celebrate educators for Teacher Appreciation Week by pledging $20,000 in donations in partnership with 10 retailers nationwide. Each retailer will have the opportunity to support their local community by awarding the teachers and schools of their choosing.
Retail partners are participating in the teacher appreciation pledge and look forward to making a difference on a local level: Bernie Robbins Jewelers, James Free Jewelers, Longs Jewelers, Meierotto Jewelers, Moody's Jewelry, Mountz Jewelers, Murphy Jewelers, Panowicz Jewelers, Right Time International, and Schiffman.
With students easing back into in-person learning and the continued need for optional virtual education solutions, Frederique Constant believes that there is not a more poignant time to support students and teachers as they adjust to the new normal. With the constant need for technology, supplies, and personal protective equipment, Frederique Constant and DonorsChoose are providing teachers with the funding necessary to access these tools.
DonorsChoose enables teachers to request donations for projects, programs or resources that are not included in their regular budget. Founded in 2000, the nonprofit has since helped fund 1.9 million classroom project requests ranging from butterfly cocoons to robotic kits, new books for classrooms, and much more. Donations as small as $1 are accepted. Every donor receives a personalized thank you note from the teacher, photos of the project in action, and a report of how each dollar was spent. Charity Navigator and GuideStar have awarded DonorsChoose, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, their highest ratings for transparency and accountability.
Carla Wilke, Chief Marketing Officer of Citizen Watch America, shared:
“Frederique Constant is honored to be an ongoing partner of DonorsChoose, and as a brand founded on the principle of living your passion, we are very proud to help give back and show our appreciation to the hard-working teachers who are dedicated to educating their students remotely during this unprecedented time.”
Charles Best, Founder and CEO of DonorsChoose, expressed:
“Our mission is to make it easy for anyone to help a teacher in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education,” said Charles Best, CEO of DonorsChoose. “We are so grateful to have such a dedicated partner in Frederique Constant and to be able to rely on their continued support to reach classrooms on a national scale.”
Additionally, each watch purchased from a participating Frederique Constant partners between today and May 31st will come with a $50 gift card that can be used to support a teacher request of your choice on DonorsChoose.
