For Teacher Appreciation week this year we will be donating 10% of sales May 3 – May 7 to Peepers for Teachers.
A Year of Giving
To honor and recognize our teachers this year we wanted to organize an event that made them feel included and supported. To ensure our community went back to school bursting with school supplies, and of course Peepers, we organized our first ever low-contact Drive Through Parking Lot Party for LaPorte County Teachers. We were so impressed to see 110 teachers drive through our event! We donated 3,200 pairs of Peepers and 9 teachers received an epic giveaway! Although it was a bit different than years past, we were ecstatic to see our teachers faces, give a friendly hello, and send some positivity and Peepers their way!
Furthermore, we organized a social media event in September. It was a “Nominate a Teacher” giveaway on Instagram. This program ran by having a teacher tag another teacher on our Instagram post, and through a random generator one lucky teacher received our signature stuffed tote. Filled to the brim with everything that makes teachers happy – like hand sanitizer, Febreze, dry-erase markers and so. many. school supplies.
We also donated 40, $50.00 Teachers Pay Teachers Gift Cards given to staff at local Knapp Elementary school. Teachers Pay Teachers is the go-to platform created by teachers, for teachers to access the community, content, and tools they need to teach at their best.
More recently, we’ve support and funded 5 Donor’s Choose projects. Ranging from our signature stuffed teacher tote to $150 Amazon gift cards, we were honored to give the teachers, students and schools some much needed support. Peep below to hear what some of our teachers are saying:
Dear Peepers For Teachers,Thank you so much for your donation. This will help my kinders stay focused and achieve their end of the year learning goals. Thank you for supporting the community and believing our students can do anything they set their minds to. I could not have done this without you. You are appreciated!

My students that struggle to read or comprehend are going to be so excited to use them. I guarantee that these materials will allow my students to flourish in the classroom. Thank you again!
Dear Peepers For Teachers,Thank you so much for your support of my classroom! These seat sacks are really going to help us stay organized and keep our materials separate from one another. My students this year are going to be so excited to have new ones because our current ones are not in great shape. The seat sacks being ordered with your donations are much better quality and should impact my students for years to come!
Dear Peepers For Teachers,I wanted to let you know how floored I was by the kind gift bag that your team dropped off. It was such a wonderful surprise! The contents are so thoughtful and extremely helpful! Thank you all for your incredible support and compassion!
PFT (Peepers For Teachers) Frame of The Month
Did you know we have a featured frame each month that helps our teachers? Each month we pick a new best-selling frame, and 10% of that frame’s proceeds go into our Peepers for Teachers Unity Fund. This program runs 12 months out of year, so next time you need a new pair of Peepers check out our Frame of the Month. You’ll be rocking the best styles, while supporting local education!
Peepers understands how hard our teachers work, often taking personal time and money away from themselves or families to serve our community. We support them endlessly and will continue our efforts in making sure they feel supported. However, if you want to do more, you can always donate directly to the Unity Fund for Peepers for Teachers to ensure that every dollar goes to help local schools and teachers. You can make a one-time donation or set up ongoing payments for continuing support.
