The other night Bill and I were watching The Colbert Report and he had Craigslist founder Craig Newmark on talking about a website he’s promoting called DonorsChoose. It’s a website where public school teachers post proposals to get funding for projects, materials, and supplies when the school can’t afford them. “…a website connecting classrooms in need with individuals who want to help.” Donors can give any amount to any project they decide. I’ve seen projects range from $160 for art supplies to $1300 for a digital camera and printer.
Check it out. Maybe your local school or a school you once attended needs some help.
