You’ve heard of DonorsChoose.org, right? The place where teachers can get funding to help their projects?Â As they put it:
1. You give to a classroom project.
2. We deliver the materials to the class.
3. Kids learn and show it in photos and thank-you notes.
I can’t think of a charity where you can have a more direct, more appreciated, more specific impact. You can choose a project in your town, one that’s focused on a topic you love, one that helps the neediest kids in America, anything you want. When you page through the requests, you see the very best of American education. These teachers really care about helping their kids, and helping them do that is a truly awesome feeling.
And now here’s the part that’s even awesomer: DonorsChoose has sent me five $25 gift cards to give away!
Think about your favorite teacher. Think about what a difference they made shaping your whole life.
