Before Christmas, Google sent me a gift card to thank me for making them rich. The gift card was redeemable for $100 in donations at DonorsChoose.org – a site that coordinates donations with teachers who could use some funding for their classrooms.
I threw the $100 toward a math project at Burroughs Community School in Minneapolis. That went toward the $493 the teacher requested for the project.
Here’s a response I received after the project was fully funded:
The site offers a pretty cool way to connect with teachers in your local community. Even if you don’t have a diem to donate, try looking up some schools near your home to see what motivated are working on.
If you’re a Deets reading teacher with a project listed on Donors Choose, let me know. I’ll pimp it here to help get it funded. Or, feel free to link to it in the comments.
