As a youth-focused and child-friendly website we wanted to give something back to an invaluable part of every community: those who educate our youth. With funding continually being cut back many educators resort to spending their own personal money to adequately provide their students with basic materials necessary for learning. Homeschoolers are faced with that same challenge. With that in mind we are proud to announce a financial gift program specifically for K-12 teachers and homeschoolers, the Educator Seed Money Grant.
Any K12 Public School Teacher who will have classes in the fall (of 2017) is eligible to apply for the $500 grant.
To see if you or a K12 teacher you know might find it useful visit this page:
Our website is about a sandbox game that is sometimes used in formal schooling situations--Minecraft. It's also a very popular game for when kids are done with their schoolwork. We created the site to provide an environment that was void of bullying and bad language and we run the site with those goals in mind together.
