Please consider donating to Donors Choose project for an iPad for my Kindergarten students. I am a second year teacher at a Title I school and many of my students have a hard home life. My classroom has a very limited amount of technology to provide a better technology rich environment for these students to be successful in the future. Any donation will help! Thank you for your consideration.

Please consider donating to my project on donors choose. I know that it is a big project but I am sooooo excited for it to be funded for my students. I work in an inner city school in Ohio. My students struggle significantly in reading and building my library full of fiction and nonfiction books will be an amazing resource. Any donation will help. Thank you for your consideration!!


If the link does not work my project id number is 1233862

I truly appreciate everything!

Please help Ricardo O'Gorman Garden School. Our Montessori-inspired pre-k in Harlem wants to create an afternoon arts enrichment program with either yoga, drama or music. Our founder, Ned O'Gorman, died just a few a months ago of pancreatic cancer, was an amazing and inspiring educator. He had invested over 50 years educating children in Harlem and also was the founder of The Children's Storefront.

For more about our efforts and school, please view the following link:


Many thanks for your support!

Hello Friends

I'm working on getting a set of four iPads for my 3rd Grade Classroom. Can you help me out? My project was just approved and posted on DonorsChoose.org. Here's my classroom request:


To have your donation matched dollar for dollar, enter the promo code INSPIRE on the payment screen. This awesome match offer lasts through July 14th. Your gift will help me, my current students, and future students tremendously. I would be very grateful if you would pass on this message to anyone else who could help.

Thank You,

First of all I'd like to thank you for the opportunity to share our project MathePlant on your platform!

The aim MathePlant is to create an ad free and free of charge app for Android that elementary school students presents math exercises and makes a simple but beautiful reward system for motivation. A virtual plant, we call it MathePlant, to get through regular practice alive, depending on the results to make them grow better and equip with "features" by frequent use. The exercises come in several difficulty levels and therefore will cover all years of primary school. To let this project come reality, we started a crowdfunding project at indiegogo.com and hope it will succeed - so please support us by spreading the word or donating us directly! So here you go: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/matheplant/x/6157466

Thanks a lot
Michael of @MathePlant

Help give my students the opportunity for a more hands-on approach to science and social studies! These vital subject areas are usually neglected in my school's curriculum, which focuses on "teaching to the test" and places most of its emphasis on reading and math. My school is classified as "highest poverty," meaning most of my kids don't have the funds or access to books and resources that are necessary to help them see how awesome our planet can be!

You can help fund the last $195 of my project, which includes a year's worth of subscriptions to Scholastic's "Let's Find Out" science and social studies edition. Thank you so much for your consideration in supporting my students!

I am moving to a new school and a new grade level this year. Unfortunately, I don't have any sturdy bins to organize my classroom library. I've used dollar store/discount store bins before, but they don't last and I feel like I'm just throwing away money each year. Please consider donating to my Donors Choose project at http://www.donorschoose.org/project/books-baskets-binsoh-my/1246976 .

I only have $110 to go and I'll be able to get my books ready for my students to easily find and return classroom books! Thank you!
