Please give a warm welcome to our September $1,000 charitable donation, DonorsChoose!
Ever since January earlier this year, we've pledged to donate $1,000 each month to a worthy charity. In the past nine months (has it really been that long?) we've given to: Child's Play, DonorsChoose classrooms, Red Cross, Autism Speaks (and we're working with ASAN now), Kids Need to Read, Make a Wish Foundation (plus a little something extra for Simon), FIRST, and some irresistible side projects, like our boxes of borked stuff, which is on-going.
Yep, we're donating to DonorsChoose again! Why are we donating to the same charity twice?
We can't resist a contest.
Check out what they posted to their Facebook wall:
Teachers! We know you spent the summer getting your classrooms ready for the school year and we want to see them!
Post a picture of your classroom to our wall by this Friday, September 24th, and you'll be entered to win one of twenty $50 gift certificates to ThinkGeek. (One entry per teacher!)
Did you hear that, teachers? We know that you're proud of your classrooms, so go show them off!
If you're not a teacher, don't think that you can't participate. Anyone can donate to DonorsChoose. There's no minimum donation, so don't feel sheepish about only donating a dollar or two. Every little bit helps, and reminds our teachers how much we <3 them.
