Here’s the deets: From Now until October 8, 2009, anyone who signs up to become a fan of The Fund for Public Schools on Facebook will be entered to win a special prize package including the famous Manolo Blahnik “Something Blue” shoes Carrie Bradshaw wore in the Sex and the City Movie. The shoes will be delivered in the lucky winner’s size, along with a movie poster, DVD, and book signed by Sarah Jessica Parker.
This promotion is part of The Fund’s Shop for Public Schools program, taking place from October 1 through October 8, 2009. In its sixth year, program was developed by New York City’s retail community and The Fund’s Vice-Chair Caroline Kennedy to raise money for improvement and revitalization of public school libraries.
For one week in the fall, participating merchants will pledge a percentage of sales or a flat donation to The Fund for Public Schools. The funds are awarded through a competitive grant program, Library REACH, which awards schools up to $10,000 to purchase books, furniture, technology and other resources to improve their libraries.
The Fund for Public Schools, a nonprofit organization chaired by New York City Schools Chancellor Joel I. Klein and Vice-Chaired by Caroline Kennedy and Mortimer Zuckerman, works to improve New York City public schools by attracting private investment in school reform and encouraging greater involvement by all New Yorkers in the education of our children.
