Donors Choose

If you have never heard about Donors Choose you must visit their website! This organization allows teachers to create a wish list of items they would like to have in their classrooms. Individual and business donors can select projects by teacher, city, or state to donate any amount to. There are even certain times during the year that larger businesses will match dollar for dollar all donations by others for a period of time. Here are a couple of the items that have been purchased for my classroom from caring individuals and corporations the last couple of years.
My classroom carpet from Lakeshore Learning

 Six Leapfrog Tag Readers and Carrying Cases
Nook donated by Starbucks

I just received an email from University of Phoenix stating that they will donate to 200 alum projects up to $500 in the next week. Here's to hoping my kiddos projects might get selected!
