One of the things that makes me puff up with pride when I think about everything PWN the SAT has become is that I’m able to donate 10% of the royalties I receive from book salesto charity. My favorite charity, where I send most of that money, is DonorsChoose.org. If you aren’t familiar, DonorsChoose.org is a site where public school teachers can post requests for classroom projects that need funding, and donors can choose—hence the name—which projects to support. You can read more about how it works here.
Anyway, at the end of every month I spend some time choosing classroom projects to donate to, and then I make some donations. You can see the kinds of projects I like, and classrooms I’ve previously supported, by clicking here. You can see some more awesome thank you notes like the one in this post in a Facebook gallery here.
But the point of this post is not just to brag—I’m posting because I want your help! I know many of you live near schools where teachers use DonorsChoose.org, and I bet some of you even attend schools where there are DonorsChoose.org projects that need funding. So I’m asking you to help me choose the projects I fund each month. All you need to do is go to DonorsChoose.org, find your favorite project, and copy/paste its URL in the form below. I won’t be able to donate to every single project that you suggest, but I will give to as many as I can.

I love that you do this! Since the majority of my clients are not local, I’m switching up from supporting my local inner city organization to this program to help kids across the country.
Thanks so much for supporting classroom projects through DonorsChoose.org! We’re so grateful to you for both funding projects, and now spreading the word. Also, it was great to meet you at our Open House the other night! 🙂
All the best,
DonorsChoose.org Marketing Team
Well hey there! The open house was really fun—thanks again for the invite. I’m glad I got to see where the magic happens.
To love what it is you do, is to never work a day in your life and I can honestly say that speaks volumes to me, as I am in my third year teaching Kindergarten in Bakersfield and living my dream! I hope you will find time to read about my students and my class. The cards given to them, away from school, were not dealt in their favor, but their abilities to learn and grow are endless and abundant.
Please help me by making a donation and/or getting the word out about my current project; my hope and my purpose is for a better tomorrow, and a brighter future! Make a donation today using code INSPIRE and Donorschoose.org will match your amount dollar for dollar!
