White Coat Underground

DonorsChoose: you guys rock

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.

    Thanks so much for making this available. I choose the “Touching Sounds Through Play” program. My son has a hearing and speech impairment and I have seen first hand what a huge difference inspiring supplies and a committed, knowledgeable teacher can make.

    From the teacher’s description, I could really see that she “gets it”. I’m so happy for the opportunity to support these kids and this teacher.

    I’ve already donated.

    Could someone donate the temporary tattoo?

    You could make it a challenge.
    If you get $x you will get a temporary tattoo.
