Dollars At Work

Posted on December 31, 2008. Filed under: Web World |

I know — two WebWorld posts in one day.  You’re probably wondering if I ever work, or just surf the web.  Remember, it is kind of a holiday (but yes I’m working!).

I just stumbled on this website: http://www.donorschoose.org and am so impressed with what I saw.  Teachers from public schools across the country can submit donation requests for special projects they are wanting to do for their students.  The projects appear to range from pretty basic (markers, art supplies, etc) to a little more high tech like a new laptop.  A donor will receive a feedback package of student thank you’s, photos, and teacher impact letter.  To date, the program has given $27,000,000+ and reached almost 2 million students.  It’s definitely worth taking a look and just a few dollars can go a long way.
