Trunks of Hope
You’ve done it! Thanks to your support, we’ve surpassed our $5,000 goal to cover the shipping costs for the 2015-2016 school year’s Teaching Trunks! With the generous goal-matching from an anonymous donor and more donations from supporters even after the end of the IndieGoGo campaign, we’ve raised over $14,000 to send Teaching Trunks to students across the country!
Be sure to follow the hashtag #TrunksofHope to see where hope is being spread next. If you would like to continue to support the Teaching Trunks program, you can do so using the form below.
Teaching Trunks are filled with materials educators can use to help teach their students about the Holocaust, other genocides and character education — books, videos, maps, diaries, photos, artwork, guidelines, lesson plans and more. Last year alone, our trunks traveled to 17 states, reaching approximately 50,000 students! The Museum sends Teaching Trunks FREE of charge to any educator in the contiguous United States who wants one. If you’d like to know more about the Teaching Trunks or you’re a teacher who would like to request one for their classroom, click here.
