DonorsChoose reminder: Incentives to give more by Sunday

i-9dc84d4d9156dccb30d5f62466b4219a-swblocks.jpgDon't worry, SciWo's storytime is coming later today. But first a word about our on-going DonorsChoose challenge. Along with 22 others, DonorsChoose has already given $50 to our challenge, and now they want to give more...based on how much we raise by Sunday. Here's the scoop:

Next week, we will distribute $200,000, the rest of HP's contribution, to all Social Media Challenge Giving Pages. But this time, your share will be calculated on a pro-rata basis based on the amount you've raised by Sunday. What does that mean? Now is the time to motivate your readers, followers, friends, fam and fans to donate to your page, so you can claim a larger share of the funds!

And there's yet another bonus: after the Challenge is over, everyone who donated to your Giving Page will get a Giving Card, courtesy of HP. Those donors will get to decide which projects are supported with HP's $200,000 in funds. [Italics mine]

This incentive is on top of the already plentiful list of prizes available to donors to our challenge. To recap:

  • A chance at 3 t-shirts from our friends at Yellow Ibis. (Send a receipt for any amount to science dot woman at gmail)
  • Finish off a project and you can request a special SciWo's Storytime with the age-appropriate book of your choice. (Send a receipt for any amount to science dot woman at gmail)
  • A chance at a Scienceblogs swag bag with Seed moleskin notebooks and tote bags, ScienceBlogs mugs and USB drives, and books from Yale University Press and Oxford University Press. (Send a receipt to

Please give generously by Sunday and through all of next week. There are many great projects left to be funded.
