Don’t forget to save and scan your receipts into the Shoparoo app! It’s a super simple way to earn free money for our school. 4th grade won the class competition for the month of April and received an extra recess as a reward. We can’t wait to see which grade level will pick up the pace and scan the most receipts for the month of May!

Shoparoo is school fundraising made easy: the free app turns pictures of your everyday shopping receipts into cash donations and sweepstakes entries for our school! Yep, it’s that simple. All you have to do is shop as you normally do, snap pictures of your receipts with the app, and voila Just shop, snap, earn!

Get started today:

1.   Download the free Shoparoo app onto your phone

2.   Select our school from the list and start taking pictures of your receipts – shop anywhere, buy anything!

3.   Select a grade to support and have fun with grade competitions! At the end of each month the grade level with the most points will get one extra 15 minute recess!

There’s no limit to how much money we can raise with Shoparoo – the more supporters, the more we will raise for our school. Schools with just 40 supporters are earning an average of $1,000 every year. That’s free, easy money that we could be fundraising too. Check out to learn more about this awesome app! Thank you for your support!
