Christina's LIS Giving 2

Oct 09 2010 Published by under Off Topic

Like last year, the Science Bloggers are getting together for the next month to try to raise money for Donors choose.

Here's the blurb from the site about what Donors Choose is: is an online charity connecting individuals, like you, to classrooms in need. The average public school teacher spends $500 - $700 on classroom supplies out of his/her own pocket, and students still go without critical supplies they need to learn. So this website is great, because teachers can post requests, like microscopes, DNA kits, even field trips to the zoo, and you can help fund them.

Take the time to read about how they follow up and how they make sure the money goes where it's supposed to go. This is a well run charity that can make a difference in classrooms.

If you are a school library media specialist, consider adding a project (by all means let me know so I can add it to my giving page).

You can visit my Science Bloggers for Students Page,, to make a donation.  In my sidebar there's a widget about classroom projects. If none of those projects work for you, please consider projects selected by other Scientopians or really any on the site at all.

Thank you!

p.s. - in a previous project I gave Donors Choose gift certificates as thank yous for participating. I think it worked out nicely so you might consider that!
