DonorsChoose – double your impact!

You heard of HP, didn’t you? It’s a person (or company, perhaps Hewlett Packard for all I know) who donated to every single challenge on Social Media Challenge Giving Pages on DonorsChoose!

And now I hear that HP wants to give even more – but there is a method to that madness: you have to donate first! More anyone raises by Sunday, more that person’s Challenge gets from HP:

HP has been tracking the competition closely and has already made a $50 contribution to your page, as a result of all of your hard work. The good news? 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.

See – that’s easy. Now all you need to do is click riiiiiight here….
