These next 3 days are an especially good time to donate through DonorsChoose, as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is picking up the 2nd half of most of these projects when donors commit to the 1st half. Your donation goes twice as far.
DonorsChoose makes it easy for anyone to help students in need:
Here’s how it works: Public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on our site, and you can give any amount to the project that most inspires you.
When a project reaches its funding goal, we ship the materials to the school. You’ll get photos of the project taking place, a letter from the teacher, and insight into how every dollar was spent. Give over $50 and you’ll also receive hand-written thank-yous from the students.
