Christina's LIS Rant

I think sometimes the widget on the left side doesn’t work. Here’s the direct link to support one of the projects I’ve picked. I think these are some great things that will help students in my state, but if you don’t see anything here that floats your boat, please pick a project on one of the other ScienceBling’s giving pages.

We’ve also just heard that the very generous folks at HP will be donating even more to the cause. This is what they’ve told us:

HP wants to make yet another contribution to your Giving Page. The more you raise by this Sunday, October 25, the more HP will contribute!

Next week, we will distribute $200,000, the rest of HP’s contribution, to all Social Media Challenge Giving Pages. But this time, your share will be calculated on a pro-rata basis based on the amount you’ve raised by Sunday. What does that mean? Now is the time to motivate your readers, followers, friends, fam and fans to donate to your page, so you can claim a larger share of the funds!

And there’s yet another bonus: after the Challenge is over, everyone who donated to your Giving Page will get a DonorsChoose.org Giving Card, courtesy of HP. Those donors will get to decide which projects are supported with HP’s $200,000 in funds.
