My students are about to do an author study at the end of April about Patricia Polacco so I created this Donors Choose project for supplies to create their final projects. They will study the themes of the author's works and create a book of their own. There is match funding for this project so we're almost there. Please consider supporting my students or sharing my project. We would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your help!

Hi Friends,
I am currently a 2nd grade teacher at a Title I school, meaning that my kiddos come from the highest degree of poverty. I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed, so I just created aDonorsChoose.org classroom request.

IF YOU ARE ABLE TO DONATE ANY AMOUNT TO THIS CAUSE BY SATURDAY, APRIL 23RD, YOUR DONATION WILL BE DOUBLED!! Just enter the code LIFTOFF during checkout and you'll be matched dollar for dollar (up to $100) thanks to DonorsChoose.org.
In return, you'll get awesome photos of your gift in action and our heartfelt thanks.

Please check out the link www.donorschoose.org/mrs.harrer to read up about my students and project and also to donate!

Thank you so much,
Lisa Harrer
P.S. If you know anyone who may want to help my students, please pass this along!

I have created a proof of concept model where I am introducing educational contests that will offer thousands of dollars in prizes for an entry fee of only $1. There are many educational contests that "smart guys/gals" can enter but they are either once a year (national spelling bee, Intel Science Talent, etc) or expensive to enter and limited by size (chess - entry fees $20-$300). Ours will be on the Apple/Android systems.

Our hope is to offer $50K-$100K tournaments every weekend for only $1 each. With the goal that EVERYONE can afford to enter the tournaments. Our first $25K tournament will hopefully be funded by the Indiegogo campaign http://bit.ly/1W167mV.

Please take a moment and read about it. It will be launched 8 days from now. If this will go well, our 2nd product will be a math game. Our first one which is already on both the Apple and Google stores is a memory game. Check them out!
