Creating Future Award Winning Authors

The cost of this laminator, binding machine and supplies is $640, including shipping and <a target="new" href="" onclick="g_openWindow('', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

My 3rd grade students are wonderful writers who use their imaginations to take them to far off places. However, our school is located in a very poor community, so textbooks and supplies are our main priority. There is no room for purchasing items to help our children "publish" their works of art. I would like them to have the opportunity to go beyond the few sheets of paper stapled together. They need to feel proud of their creations. Therefore, we are in need of a book-binding machine and laminator in order to create professional looking books. The books will become part of our classroom library for future classes to read and enjoy. I want every single student that comes to my classroom to feel that his/her work is valuable and worthy.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
