Donors Choose



I love this website.

Last Friday when I was all tired from the last day of school, I got on the computer and uploaded 2 projects.
All-Purpose Teacher...
Project 1 is Heavy Duty Book Boxes for my entire class. 

Project 2 is an iPad 2 for more internet access for my students.

I checked school email (yes, I check during summer), and found out that for the first week of the projects the site is matching donations.  I clicked on the iPad project, and then I blinked since my $570 project is $96 away from being funded.  I'm like - say what???  So excited!

I'm thankful for partnership funding - they want to help my class!!!

So - come Friday if it hasn't been funded, I will be coughing up the $48 with the code "Inspire" (to match) and then next year I'll get the iPad for my kiddos.

SOOO excited!!!

  2. Congratulations! And continued success! I was wondering where you found those book boxes. I have been looking for some and those look very sturdy.

  3. Wow, that's awesome! I want to put a project on there for iPads as well. I need to find out more info on this!

    What is partnership funding?

    And, if your iPad is funded now, you just have next year's class write thank you notes?

    Thanks!
