Bloggers blog, Readers donate, Kids benefit.

Regular readers will remember that last year we here at Scienceblogs undertook a bloggers challenge for DonorsChoose.org, an organization that helps K-12 teachers. In two weeks we raised over $34,000 for deserving teachers and their students. This blog alone raised $1,000. This year, we’re aiming to be bigger and better, and given the extra time (and my increased readership), I’m setting our goal at $4000.

So, go here and donate. Choose a project if you want, or just donate to the general fund ... it’s all good.

Oh, and keep the email that you will receive from DonorsChoose - there will probably be a prize drawing at some stage for Sb readers who donate.
