I just put up a new widget on the right side of this page. The network is participating in the Science Bloggers for Students Project, a month-long charity drive facilitated by the good folks over at www.donorschoose.org. If you click on over to our donorschoose.org page, you’ll find a whole slew of projects that we’ve selected to campaign for. The way donorschoose.org works is simple – teachers of needy classrooms post project descriptions, asking for donations to help them accomplish specific goals in their classrooms, which are often in very high-poverty areas. Donors can then choose which projects they want to support. Each project has a cost breakdown and description written by the teacher. Overall, it’s a very efficient charity (about 92% of what they bring in goes directly to funding projects, which is pretty much as efficient as large non-profit organizations get.) So head on over the The Gam Classroom Initiative page, check out the projects, and give whatever you can! Take this opportunity to help give these kids the science education they deserve.
