Have you ever heard of Donors Choose? It is an online program that allows you to search for schools in your area that need help. Donate the way you choose and to the projects that are dear to your heart. Money is tight everywhere, we know this. Here in the North Texas area there is an endless list of school districts offering seasoned teachers early retirement packages to cut back on budgets. It is truly a sad situation.
But at the end of the day schools still need help. Classrooms are doing without.
How to Donate
It is super easy to give. You do not even have to leave your home.
Log on at www.donorchoose.org.
Pick the city and state you want to help (or the specific school).
Pick a subject, like the arts, math and science, special needs, etc.
The system will generate a list of projects that match your query.
The teachers in need give a description of the project they want to do with her students, outlining the supplies they need, as well as how much it will cost to complete the project. There is a running tally of how many monetary donations have been made and how much more money needs to be raised to meet their goal.
Once the money is raised, DonorsChoose.org delivers the materials to the classroom so the students can complete their project. The students will share pictures and thank yous to let you see their amazing accomplishments from the contribution you made.
Are you a teacher needing help with classroom materials or want a project sponsored? Just add your project to the DonorsChoose.org database. It is as easy as that.
I hope you’ll check it out.
