The news cycle is filled with stories of teachers raising money for their students, or putting in countless extra hours of work to make sure they get the care they need. One teacher in Florida just took it one step further by dedicating one of the most important days of her life to her students.

A teacher in Tampa, Florida asked her wedding guests to bring school supplies instead of gifts to her wedding.

???? School supplies instead of a wedding registry???Kelli Cameron and her new husband Matt asked wedding guests to bring backpacks full of school supplies for children instead of a wedding gift. The first grade teacher from Roland Park K8 donated 70 backpacks full of supplies and uniforms to students at BT Washington to get their year started off right.

Kelli Cameron is a first-grade teacher at Roland Park K-8 Magnet School in Tampa. Her students don’t need help with supplies, but she knew that students were struggling at the nearby Booker T. Washington Elementary School.

The school gave Kelli and her husband Matt a list of needed supplies, and the couple created an Amazon wishlist. Instead of giving their wedding guests a link to a registry, they simply sent them to Amazon to pick out school supplies.

“We got engaged last summer. We had kind of been planning for a year or so, and decided we didn’t need anything specific,” Kelli said in a video on the Hillsborough County Public Schools Facebook page.

In the video, Matt said:

“It wasn’t much different than going online and making a registry. Instead of crockpots, it was Sharpies and T-shirts and khaki shorts. I’m not surprised at all that she thought of this and went into it so passionately, because that’s what she does every day.”

After their wedding at the Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club in Tampa in June, the couple took stock of the donations and found that their endeavor was a success.

The Camerons were able to donate 70 backpacks stuffed with supplies.

“How wonderful it was that we were able to do that, take something that was about us and help others,” Kelli said. “The kids who get the backpacks will be excited for that first day of school, and excited that they have that new backpack and new supplies, and are ready to start the school year.”
