I'm new to Blogger. I was flipping through some other blogs and saw a post about DonorsChoose.org and I went to take a look. I think it's an amazing program with amazing potential for helping schools, which is something that everyone thinks is a good idea, but no one really knows how to do. Through this program, if it were more widely known, I think schools could obtain the tools they needed to actually encourage kids to learn.
I remember when I was growing up, our schools had issues at times with funding, and even as young as I was, I could see the impact it had. I noticed when we didn't get to do certain things the classes got to do the previous years, since I had a sister preceding me through the grades. I noticed when we didn't get as many handouts because the school was short on paper, and how I dearly missed those warm purple lettered ditto pages. I think my good deed for the month is going to be trying to spread word of this website to many many people. Hopefully it will drum up enough interest in it to make even more of a difference.
I mean, if 31,000 people can make a 13 million dollar difference, imagine the difference a million people could make.
