Stephen Colbert is not only hilarious, but fabulous. If you have not heard of DonorsChoose.org, allow me to introduce you to one of the sweetest charities on Earth. Here’s how it works: public school teachers from all corners of America post their classroom projects on the website DonorsChoose.org. With education cutbacks effecting our public schools, requests range from much-needed pencils for a poetry writing class, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class. I Mean What has selected ten classroom projects in need of various items to make their projects happen. Click on the image of Stephen Colbert, one the organizations board members to peruse the classroom projects that I felt a connection to and make a donation of any amount. No contribution is too small.
Was Stephen Colbert or Oprah (another board member) ever star in The Wizard of Oz? I played the Cowardly Lion in a grade school play, I was compelled to include Ms. Tiess’ project of mounting the play since they desperately need costumes. Another classroom project that I was drawn to is Ms. Sperduto’s intention to provide her students with current events reading materials to learn what’s happening in the world today. And what about Mrs. Calderon’s Blogging Our Way Through 2nd Grade? What’s cuter than that? Look, if we are to develop future bloggers, these kids need the basic necessities: Time Magazine for Kids.
Anyhoo, I hope I have peaked your interest and giving bone to do a little something special today. “Courage!”
