Hoover IB partners with mental_floss to raise funds
By Brad Coltrane
Dear Hoover IB Supporter,
Today's challenging economy has made it harder than ever for us to raise funds, but we think we've found a fun, smart solution that's going to make everyone happy.
We've teamed up with mental_floss magazine-- the brainchild of Hoover High alum Will Pearson -- to offer you a quick and easy way to support the IB program. In 2001, mental_floss began as a magazine for knowledge junkies. Since then, it's wowed critics and received rave reviews in everything from Newsweek to the Washington Post. The company, which specializes in blurring the lines between education and entertainment, has a whole host of products that are perfect for every knowledge lover you know: from wonderful books, to hilarious T-shirts, to a whole host of games and puzzles.
The partnership is simple. When you use the special Hoover IB coupon code at the bottom of this post, 30%* of your purchase price will come back to us for IB programs. The offer's good from April xx until June xx. So, go ahead and get your Mother's Day, Father's Day and graduation shopping out of the way, and help out our school in the process.
Thanks again for your support for Hoover IB. We're excited about the potential of this exciting, new partnership.
