At CritterKin we are partnered with a global community of educators to raise funding for the "Not Perfect Hat Club" (NPHC) Project, created by author/illustrator Jena Ball, and it is on the Pubslush platform: https://Pubslush.com/project/4118.
The idea behind the project is to help kids understand that "perfect is not an option" and discover ways to celebrate and enjoy the things that make them uniquely and perfectly Not Perfect! It's described by Jena (a.ka. Ms. Jenaia to her young fans & teachers) in a TouchCast video: http://notperfecthatclub.com/

The goal of the Pubslush campaign is to complete the NPHC book, illustrations, teaching materials, and the PBL initiative for classrooms. It has the support of the Global Classroom Project 2015, individual teachers, principals, parents and other partner organizations.
The Not Perfect Hat Club is first and foremost an engaging, entertaining, imaginative story by Jena Ball and a song! The project is dedicated to growing a global movement, to create - A place where EVERY kid can hang a hat! We're asking everyone to: "Pass the Hat for the Not Perfect Hat Club." Thank You!

My kids love learning - but they REALLY love playing video games! Why not let them do both? I'm trying to get MinecraftEdu licenses for my class to connect content to their interests. Check it out! And let me know if you have any questions about getting into gamification! http://tilt.tc/8pxw

I have a Donorschoose project for my robotics team and I hope to be successful with them! My project is dollar for dollar because of SPARK, so whenever you donate some money, SPARK will donate that exact same amount. This is a wonderful opportunity for me! Your donations are also tax-deductible, so I encourage you to support me! All donations are greatly appreciated! Heres my project: http://www.donorschoose.org/project/preserve-vex-robotics-team-memories/...

I am a BRAND new teacher this year at a district where we don't have many resources. I am asking for your help to support me and promote me to friends that might help.
I teach elementary special education and I am trying to build up an awesome program that people love! We are working so hard as a team at this school, but we don't have the funds.

Please help us or share us with your friends! Thank you all for supporting education!


If you donate before January 29th, use the promo code SPARK and they will double your donations!

I'm a music teacher in an urban school in the city of Pittsburgh, and we recently lost our Instrumental Music Program. Help me supplement our kids music class by incorporating guitar instruction into their music classes!

Check out my Donorschoose project... only $291.00 more to go!

Thank you for the opportunity to share! I had some success with Donors Choose last year during my first year teaching. Currently, I have a project going for new puzzles. My Early Childhood Special Education classroom has puzzles but most are very old, dirty, and missing many pieces. My kiddos get so sad when they get to the end of the puzzle but they can't finish it because of a piece being gone. We were supposed to be able to order some new ones, but two separate break-ins at our school have resulted in all extra money going to replace gone technology. Any little bit helps and my project is up for the INSPIRE code until July 16th! http://www.donorschoose.org/project/is-a-puzzle-still-a-puzzle-without-a...

S.T.E.A.M Nation is going to be an outstanding experience for those attending, volunteering, and exhibiting at the event. Last year I volunteered, and had a blast! Can't wait till Saturday, October 18th!

STAR Education, a nonprofit in Los Angeles with a 27 year history of success, is bringing equity to innovative learning by producing our second annual S.T.E.A.M. Nation event this October. Our goal is to bring S.T.E.A.M. professionals and 2,000 underserved students to West LA college for a day of inspiring performances and hands-on activities.

Please help us make this happen by sponsoring a student or sharing our Indiegogo campaign: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/s-t-e-a-m-nation-2014
