Donors Choose Wrap-up

Thanks to everyone who participated in this year's Donors Choose Science Bloggers for Students campaign. Twenty-two readers from this humble blog donated a total of $524, affecting a total of 904 students! And that's not all, because HP is matching every dollar donated, so your $524 is actually worth $1048.

Keep your eyes on your email inboxes for the emails from Donors Choose with information on how to use the HP-matched vouchers to help even more students - don't ignore those emails, or those matching funds will go UNUSED!

Overall, the support from the science-blog-reading community has been enormous:
More than 50 bloggers from various networks raised $34,690 from 472 citizen philanthropists, affecting the lives of more than 23,000 students.

A big w00t! goes out to the all the networks which participated in the month-long challenge: Discover, LabSpaces, Ocean and Geo Bloggers, Scientopia, ScienceBlogs, WIRED Science Blogs, and the Independent bloggers!

Good work, everyone!
