It’s the first Friday in June, and this means…**drumroll, please**…it’s GIVEAWAY time here at The Mailbox Blog.

Check out this bright orange “Be the Difference” bag from The Mailbox. **This bag could be yours!** Of course, if you win the bag, you’ll need to remove all the super cool school supplies that are inside of it before you can use it. But hey, that hardly seems problematic!

To be entered to win this nifty bag—and the bounty of school supplies it holds—leave a comment right here on the blog that tells where or what you’ll be teaching next school year. If you don’t know or you won’t be teaching next year, that’s okay. Just tell us. **Be sure to leave your comment right here on the blog before midnight, June 12, 2016.** The winner will be announced on Monday, June 13.

The crew here at The Mailbox is having loads of fun with the “Be the Difference” bags. If you’d like to see where the bags have been and keep up with where they will be seen this summer, **join us on Instagram by clicking here.**

**Be the difference!**
