In the context of a needy public school classroom, $165.00 is a lot of money. Not enough, but a lot, and every little bit counts. Every $5.00, every re-tweet to let others know helps. Today’s headlines show US unemployment continuing to rise, but here in Michigan, that’s old news. Unemployment state-wide is over 15%, and in many areas is twice that.
So keep up the hype. If you can’t give, email or tweet others about the challenge. While I would have liked to specify science-y projects, my home state is hemorrhaging, so I’ve picked any at need projects in Michigan.
As for what I should do for you if we reach a certain threshold, I’m not sure. Some readers have suggested a non-permanent tattoo, but I hate to spend money that could go to classrooms. I’m sure you’ll come up with something.
