The ScienceBlogs Donors Choose program kicked off with a bang yesterday. Evolgen is attempting to raise a modest $500 dollars to fund in class projects for public school science classes. There are fourteen proposals to choose from in the evolgen challenge, which will run for the next two weeks. As an added incentive, if you forward your conformation email to email@example.com you will be entered into a contest to win some schwag (see here for a breakdown of the prizes).
Additionally, SEED has guaranteed to match whatever money we raise (up to $10,000). If you were apathetic about donating, you now have two self-serving reasons to support this great cause: prizes and an automatic doubling of your donation. How awesome is that!
