donors choose

i read an article about this site called donors choose a few weeks ago and thought it sounded like a great idea. donors can browse through different projects in low-income schools and pick specific projects to help fund. you know our public schools sorely need help; this is a way that we can make sure the money is going directly to the students and their classrooms.

i am not into selling stuff, but this is a worthy thing: a friend of mine is raising a few dollars to help transform the learning environment in her classroom at one of philadelphia's poorest, toughest high schools. her classroom is a stifling 80 degrees in january, far more conducive to her special ed students falling asleep than to them learning anything! it only gets worse as the spring term progresses. please consider helping out!
