Technically, the Donors Choose challenge to help out needy kids doesn’t end until the end of the month. But donations given by Sunday are going to be matched by Hewlett-Packard. There are two great projects I’d love to get funded by Sunday, and I can’t see any reason why we can’t do it. If enough of us give a couple of bucks, we can get there in no time. Some donors have been freakishly generous, but a whole lot of 2 dollar donations can add up quickly.
A Story to Tell will purchase a computer and printer to help kids print up memoirs, helping them learn to construct stories and write. Being able to write coherently can make the difference between a good job and none at all. Right now, there’s about $220 left to go, and the Gates Foundation is matching!
Tools of the Trade will help kids who are learning English buy a printer. They will use it to construct stories and create comic books, a very cleaver way to help kids learn English. There’s $272 left to go.
This blog gets around 2500 hits per day. That’s a lot fewer unique visitors, but if even fifty people gave two bucks, we can make a big dent.
