The “Team #PhysEd” Campaign
by Joey Feith
10/50 Shirts have been ordered (20% of our goal)! Order your Team #PhysEd long sleeve or hoodie shirt today!
I was messaging with a few old classmates the other day, and found myself getting laughed at for having included a hashtag in one of my texts. You see, instead of typing out “physical education” or “PE”, I wrote #physed. The thing is… it wasn’t an accident.
For four years now, I’ve been using the #physed hashtag on Twitter. At first, it was a rare thing to find another physical educator using the hashtag to mark tweets that were PE-related. However, over time, the hashtag grew more and more popular to the point where one could say that a community had built around it.
Today, I’m a proud member of the #PhysEd community and I make sure to include that hashtag everywhere I can. I want people to be aware of all of the amazing teachers who are going out of their way to connect, share, and collaborate through social media, physical educators who are working around the clock to raise the bar for physical education everywhere!
That being said, I created a new Teespring campaign that will a) give you a way to help support ThePhysicalEducator.com, b) help get the word out about our amazing #physed community, and c) give us some sweet new shirts to wear!
By popular demand, I made sure to include long sleeve tees and hoodies in this campaign. By the sound of it, it seems like some of us could use some extra warmth these days (#polarvortex… ok, that was one hashtag too many). Here’s how the campaign works:
1. For the shirts/hoodies to ship, there needs to be at least 50 pre-orders.
2. Whether you pre-order a shirt or a hoodie, it all counts towards our goal of 50 pre-orders.
3. When you pre-order, your credit card will not be charged unless the campaign meets its goal (50 pre-orders).
4. Only if we do meet the goal, your credit card will be charged after the end of the campaign (February 23rd 2014).
5. Once the campaign is done, and if we’ve met our goal, the shirts will ship!
As I write this, we’re currently at 20% of our goal (10 shirts have been pre-ordered). There’s only just over a week left, so make sure to pre-order your shirt as soon as possible! The shirts will not be available after the campaign is done, so don’t miss out!
Go to the Team #PhysEd campaign page to check out the shirts and place your order.
Let’s get the word out and make this happen!
Thanks for reading and happy teaching!
