Here is an article by Theresa Harrington from the Contra Costa Times:
Ever wanted to help local schoolchildren, but didn’t know how?
DonorsChoose.Org takes the guesswork out of contributing to schools by giving teachers the opportunity to list projects they’d love to do in their classrooms, if only they had the money.
The website lets potential donors read about the school, class and project, then decide how much to contribute. It keeps track of how much has been collected and how much more is needed to make the teachers’ (and students’) dreams come true.
