As part of Teacher Appreciation Month, GoFundMe is launching a “We Love Teachers” $100,000 National Contest and partnering with Yoobi to help reduce out-of-pocket expenses for teachers. GoFundMe – the world’s LARGEST social fundraising platform– raised over $60 million to support schools, teachers and students across the country last year alone! Yoobi is SO excited to be teaming up with GoFundMe this year to help the true heroes in our story – TEACHERS!
