“Here we are at the end of another school year, and once again, teachers throughout the US are facing uncertainty,” said Marc Joseph, Founder and CEO of DollarDays. “Will they have a job next school year, and if so, will their classrooms balloon to unmanageable sizes? Congress has not acted and now the impact of sequestration on federal educational programs is becoming a frightening reality.”
DollarDays, America’s premier online wholesaler, works closely with teachers and school administrators across the country, supplying the tools and supplies needed most in public education. We hear the horror stories of budget and personnel cuts from our customers in primary and secondary education throughout the year and the thought of deeper education cuts does not look good for our kids or our teachers.
Who are the biggest victims of the education sequester?
• Special needs kids and Head Start (the pre-school program for disadvantaged kids)
• Poor kids and Title 1 (federal support for low income school districts)
What are the consequences of education cuts?
• Special needs kids may not get the therapy they need
• School districts may become reluctant to classify kids with disabilities because of the cuts to this program
• Art and music programs may be reduced or cut to help the budget gap
Five ways Americans can help our teachers and students now:
1. Communicate with your representatives in the House and in the Senate.
2. Donate to National Teachers Assistance Organization for professional assistance for teachers.
3. At Donors Choose, public school teachers post classroom project requests and you can donate to the project that most inspires you.
4. At Start Donating, they match donors with teachers in need of supplies.
5. And at DollarDays on our Facebook page, we are giving away $5,000 worth of products in May to help teachers across this great country; so please nominate your favorite teacher who deserves your help.
People become teachers because they want to help others and they want to make a difference. Our teachers need to focus on their passion, instead of worrying about if they will lose their jobs because our political leaders could not act to protect the educational system, which has been the backbone of our society. Let’s hope our leaders come to their senses before it is too late for our kids, and in the long run, the future of this country.
“It may seem like contacting a senator or donating supplies couldn’t possibly make a difference, but collectively, we can make a difference—a difference that will help our teachers, our kids and our country. Be sure to visit DollarDays.com and nominate your favorite teacher to win in our $5,000 school supplies giveaway—eighteen teachers will be randomly selected to win,” said Marc Joseph.

Most of us own pets. We know the comfort they provide for life’s invisible scars. The unconditional love they provide transcends work issues, family conflicts, death, divorce and other life events. Our pets don’t care if we can read or not, what our skin color is or who we love.
At DollarDays, the nation’s premier online wholesaler, we are doing our part by giving away $5,000 worth of merchandise to help animal shelters across the country—and you can be a part of it. Please nominate an animal shelter in your community by entering on our Facebook page. Additionally, Animal Planet’s hit reality TV show, Pit Bulls and Parolees, will have a donation opportunity for their pit bull rescue center, Villalobos (VRC) on DollarDays’ checkout page during April. Customers can choose to donate $1, $5 or $20 to VRC.

For the month of February, we are extending our New Year new opportunity so anyone can own their own online business right away! At DollarDays, we believe in helping small businesses succeed, which is why we created this turnkey solution. CEO Marc Joseph’s recent Huffington Post article to get a little fuel for becoming an online distributor.
With our Distributor Program, you get a unique sub-domain on our site, with all the same products and content as DollarDays.com. We provide you the added benefit of customer retention and long term sales while offering a commission rate of up to 15%! Many of us have dreamed about owning our own business but the costs are just too much. DollarDays has created a distributor program where there is no investment in inventory. It gives you the chance to sell over 225,000 different products by the case at truckload prices to the businesses and organizations in your town or to your neighbors. It is a very simple program.
The setup fee ($99) is waived for the first year. The annual fee is equal to the price featured at the time of renewal. All DollarDays order policies apply. A monthly recurring fee of $9.95 (normally $15.95) will be charged for the following services:
- Full Service Sales Force
- Complete customer service including handling returns
- All customer order tracking and email notification
- Order processing and shipping
- Payment Processing (Mastercard, Visa, American Express, PayPal)
- Responsibility for collections on unpaid or delinquent orders
- Website hosting and daily maintenance of product database
- Manage and warehouse all inventory.
We handle it all, so you can spend your time promoting your website! Go ahead and compare programs. We guarantee you won’t find others that offer so much for so little.
Already have your own storefront (online or brick and mortar)? Use this opportunity to buy merchandise for your store and make commission on it.
In addition to all of the above, we offer significant help to you through our Distributorship Tool Kit, Q&A podcasts and a free downloadable copy of CEO Marc Joseph’s book ($22.95 value),The Secrets of Retailing…or How to Beat Wal Mart.
Take a closer look at our distributorship program. We’d love to have you on board.
