Let the challenge begin! Starting October 1, 2008, bloggers from around the globe will compete to raise money for U.S. classrooms on DonorsChoose.org.
Never heard of DonorsChoose? Here is how it works…
DonorsChoose.org is a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack. At this not-for-profit web site, teachers submit project proposals for materials or experiences their students need to learn. These ideas become classroom reality when concerned individuals, whom they call Citizen Philanthropists, choose projects to fund.
Proposals range from “Magical Math Centers” ($200) to “Big Book Bonanza” ($320), to “Cooking Across the Curriculum” ($1,100). Any individual can search such proposals by areas of interest, learn about classroom needs, and choose to fund the project(s) they find most compelling.
In completing a project, donors receive a feedback package of student photos and thank-you notes, and a teacher impact letter.
How can you contribute? Easy!
Visit our Giving Page located on DonorsChoose.org. Review the local projects that we have selected and donate a few dollars to help complete the project.
Many of our projects are 65-75% funded! Just a few dollars from you will provide these Chicago classrooms with the resources that they need to enhance the learning process.
All contributions are tax-deductible…
