    I selected “I didn’t see a project I wanted to support” because I am from the UK and much as I like US kids I think kids in other countries have a greater need. I wonder if those who thought up the challenge remembered that the Internet is a global phenomenon?

    Mark,

    That’s certainly a valid perspective, and I encourage you to support global charities. But this is not to say there aren’t dire needs here in the U.S. In my county, for example, I just learned that our high school graduation rate is a staggering 56 percent. The entire state of South Carolina has only a 53 percent graduation rate. The schools in the U.S. desperately need improvement, but due to the fact that they are under local control, different school districts have different levels of funding. Many of them are appallingly low.
