This holiday season, give the gift of education. If you’re looking for a cause to support, check out donorschoose.org. Selected as one of Oprah’s Favorite Things, donorschoose.org is an online charity that allows teachers to post proposals for educational projects in need of funding, and then connects them with members of the public interested in making donations. Visit the website, browse the projects, pick one that you like the best, donate, and help a teacher and students in need.
Here are some classrooms with great projects that need some help:
Human Rights Expedition
These students would like twelve copies each of nine books that tell the stories of human rights victims from around the world.
Healthy Harvest: Community Garden for Kids Part 1 and Part 2
A classroom in Oregon is asking for four sets of garden tools to help jumpstart their own school community garden. The garden will help teach the students about sustainable and organic gardening practices, while contributing to the school lunch program.
Science TAKS.. Uncut, Unleashed and Outdoors!
Help provide ten microscopes and twenty-five safety spectacles so students in Texas can perform science field investigations. The equipment will enhance their experiences with investigating nature and collecting data.
Happy holidays everyone!
