Donors Choose

Donorschoose DonorsChoose.org has issued a challenge to the blogging community.  (This site is an undertaking of Michael Everett-Lane, a friend of this blog.) 

Please have a look at the DonorsChoose.org website and see if there is anything you’d like to support.  I used the keyword "shakespeare" and ended up making a contribution to the Stone Scholastic Academy in Chicago.

Here’s what a teacher at Stone Scholastic said to reel me in. 

I am a 7th and 8th grade language arts teacher in Chicago, Illinois. The school I work for has a diverse ethnic population with students from all income levels. Recently I was able to introduce one of the greatest playwrights of all time to my seventh grade classes: Shakespeare! I used a set of No Fear Shakespeare books to bring "A Midsummer’s Night Dream" into our classroom. The students were hooked right from the start!

I like this idea of connecting individual supporters to particular projects, schools, and teachers. Anyhow, have a look and see what you think.
