BY REBECCA BENNETT — The Mall at Prince Georges announced a crowdfunding campaign called “Kickstart Your Class” to help teachers fund classroom projects.  Anyone can search for projects and donate, while teachers can submit projects for crowdfunding.

“Kickstart Your Class is our way of thanking our loyal shoppers and showing the community how much we value our students, teachers and their schools,” says Victoria Clark, Mall at Prince Georges Marketing Director. “In working with to crowdfund these projects, we are demonstrating the true power of community.”

Mall officials said they hosted an “Educators’ Night Out” to introduce local teachers to the crowdfunding initiative, which included in-store promotions, prizes and refreshments.

Philadelphia-based PREIT, the mall’s parent company, will also be distributing over $75,000 of gift cards throughout all of its mall to fund select projects, a press release said.
