Donors Choose

Oct 19 2010 Published by under Donors Choose

Once again, I'm amazed by the generosity of my readers.  The huge project you funded which will give science supplies to an inner city school was finished just in time, and the giving frenzy was sparked by a very small donation.  Small donations can do this---they become a nidus for more giving and from a moral standpoint are at least as good large donations.

The other thing that amazes me is that we (you, me, Scientopia readers) are doing really well in our competition with other groups of science bloggers.  We are only a little bit behind mega-groups ScienceBlogs and DiscoverBlogs.    The best thing about the contest is that kids win no matter what.

So keep the donations coming, especially the smaller ones.   And here's a great project for the donations: a teacher in an inner city school wants an aquarium so that her kids can observe  frog growth and development.  As a fellow blogger has pointed out, there are some significant successes out there in education.  We can help build on these successes by helping talented, creative teachers elevate our children.

So, $224 by tomorrow will help another teacher help her kids.  That helps all of us.

    Donated, but this is getting kind of depressing. Shouldn't the taxpayers be buying basic equipment for schools rather than forcing them to beg for little things like an aquarium? Yeah, I know, not an original thought.
