Usually in a similar situation, people turn to crowdfunding – the modern method of financing any of the projects due to “people’s” contributions on the GoFundMe website. But Teresa Denk, an elementary school teacher in Tulsa (Oklahoma) to raise money for students in her third grade materials and supplies, decided on a desperate act: she stood on the corner of one of the city streets with a sign urging passers-by to donate “much as you can”. Denk says that she has to spend on such purchases from two to three thousand dollars of his modest salary of 35 thousand dollars a year (in Oklahoma, the payment of teacher’s work is one of the lowest in the country). That provides the school administration is grossly inadequate, says Teresa. Although already in the first five minutes of standing with an outstretched hand she collected $ 55, it’s not just about the money, she said. Its purpose is to draw public attention to the difficult financial situation faced by the school in the state, forcing teachers to spend their own money on the purchase of the necessary classroom things.
