charity: donors choose
Monday, September 12, 2011 at 06:00AM in LOVE THIS..., charity, public school

With all the excitement of "back to school" it seems like a good time to mention one of my favorite charities. Donors Choose is a website where teachers can post projects they would like to do in their classrooms but cannot afford with their budget restrictions. As a parent of public school children I know first hand how many enriching activities arise that call for additional funds - whether it is a couple dollars for a class trip, or larger contributions to the PTA to fund an art teacher. I love that through Donors Choose you can look for activities that strike a chord, or sort by schools that are in high poverty is a great way to help school children, and show support for the teachers out there that want to make a difference.
