Note - this is a featured post that will be at the top of the page until my birthday. Scroll down for newer posts.
A couple of months ago, I posted about signing up for the DonorsChoose.org Give-Back Birthday challenge. Even though my birthday is in August, I posted about it in May because there were a number of projects that needed funding right away, and I wanted to bring people's attention to them.
Now that my birthday is a few short weeks away, I have gone through and updated my birthday page with many new projects that still need funding. As I stated in my original post, I will personally match the first $2,000 donated. The projects I've chosen need a total of $5,242 to get them all fully funded - that means if $2k is funded by people who want to give me fantastic cash and prizes for my birthday, and I match the next $2k, over 75% of the projects in my list will be fully funded!
So please donate - even a $5 donation means $10 goes to a needy classroom. Many employers do company matching for charitable donations, too, so your donation could easily be tripled if your company and I both match it. If you'd rather set up your own Giving Page, please do so, and let me know in the comments.
