Hewlett-Packard, the folks who made the computer I’m using at this very moment, are going to kick in more money to our project, and they’re doing it on some sort of pro rated matching system that I don’t understand. What I do understand is that as of today, HP is tracking how much we give, and based on how much we raise by Sunday, they will kick in some serious dough.
Also, as a special bonus to those who have given, HP is going to send out giving cards which will let you decide where more of HP’s money goes.
The details are not clear, but it boils down to this: the more we give by Sunday, the more HP will kick in, and HP will give each donor the opportunity to help disburse the dough.
So now is the time. You’re tax-deductible donations are worth even more if you get them in now. And there are a couple of projects that are almost fully funded: for example,Show and tell: building mathematical literacy, has only $55 more to go before kids can start improving their math skills.
Thanks to everyone who has helped out. So far, we have reached over 800 students in impoverished Michigan classrooms. Every dollar helps.
