    Dear Friends and Family, 
     
    I belong to the homeschool organization, T'CHERs (The Caribbean Center of Home Education Resources).   We are the only island-wide (PR, and USVI to a lesser extent) bilingual organization of its kind and we strive to provide information, resources, and human contacts for those interested in starting homeschooling, as well as for veteran homeschoolers.   A current project we have is setting up homeschool resource centers in libraries across the island. (Homeschool Connections: Book by Book with Libraries) There are two ways that you can help us in this endeavor - no matter where you live.  
     
    Box Tops for Education
    We've intiated a BoxTops for Education fundraising effort. Simply clip the Box Tops for Education coupon found on General Mills and other products, send them to us, and we then redeem them for 10 cents each.  If you should like to contribute to our Box Tops program, you may send your coupons to our fundraising coordinator: Olibama Piñero, 85 Calle Los Rotarios, Isabela, PR  00662.  You can also support us by
    making your online purchases through the Box Tops Marketplace. It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:     
    1. Visit www.boxtops4education.com
    2. Register your school: Tchers, State: Puerto Rico, zip code: 00622
    3. When making your online purchases, simply enter the Marketplace and click on your favorite store.
    There are more that 175 links to your favorite stores and a percentage of your valid purchase will benefit our group, without any additional cost to you. You can find an updated store list at www.boxtops4education.com .
     
    Good Search
    Another, even easier way, that you can help us in this library project, and any others that we come up with, is to use Good Search as your search engine.  It is powered by Yahoo and gives excellent search results.   Each time you use them for a search, T'CHERs will get 1 cent.  While this doesn't seem like a lot, it does add up and we can certainly use all the pennies we can get.  
     
    To use Good Search and help T'CHERs: 

     
    1)  Go to
    www.goodsearch .com 
    2)  In the "Who Do You GoodSearch For" box type "tchers" - our name should then come up  
    3) Conduct your search in the bar above it 
     
    OR, to make it easier and more accessible: 
     
    1)  Go to
    www.goodsearch.com 
    2)  In the "Who Do You GoodSearch For" box type "tchers" - our name should then come up  
    3)  Click on: Add GoodSearch to Your Toolbar (It will then be in your list of search engines on your browser and you can conduct your searches directly from there - with us still getting the penny for each search.   (If it isn't working for you, make sure that you allow "cookies" on your computer.)  
     
    We would greatly appreciate your support of T'CHERs in this way, however, please resist the urge to get more money for us by doing bogus searches.   GoodSearch is made possible by people doing honest searches, so please, simply search in the same manner that you would use any other search engine.  
          
    Thanks so much,
