Help Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert raise money for DonorsChoose.org and Stephen Colbert will sing Rebecca Black's "Friday" with The Roots! 

 

Jimmy Fallon & Stephen Colbert recently announced that they've become Best Friends Forever (for Six Months) and are generously donating each others' time & money to DonorsChoose.org. 

 

Last week, Stephen announced that Jimmy had matched Stephen's gift of $26,000 from the proceeds of a Colbert portrait sold at auction. Unfortunately, Stephen did not tell this to Jimmy. 

 

However, Jimmy is very excited to raise the money for DonorsChoose.org and greatly appreciates the work his BFF (for six months) has done on his behalf. 

 

So, as announced on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, if the Fallon / Colbert Project can raise $26,000 by this Friday April 1st, Stephen Colbert has graciously agreed to sing Rebecca Black's "Friday" accompanied by the Roots. Please donate!

 

And thank you so much! PS, this is not an April Fools joke.


Every donor thanked. Donation is tax-deductible.

 

 

Here is just one of the several projects people can donate to...

My Students: "Great opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day.” I am a self-contained, multiple-subject, fifth grade teacher at a designated low-income elementary school. The student population is minority-based with a high concentration of English Language Learners.

 

My students are in need of current technology that can be of assistance to their academic development and advancement. I feel that by using current technological trends as a means to enhance conceptualization of academic principles my students will become more interested and engaged in the learning process. Many of my students are underprivileged and come from single parent, foster, migrant, and military families. They deserve advanced hands on learning opportunities, and rely on them more than students who receive regular educational support at home.

 

My Project: The Power Sync Case will allow my students to have a functioning iPod touch when needed. Currently each student has to rotate their device on the four chargers in the classroom, which means at times there are students whose iPods are not powered and therefore not usable. My students rely heavily on these devices as dictionaries, research tools, math flash cards, graphing calculators, atlases, and periodic tables. These are just a few of the apps that my students use on a daily basis to assist them with their assignments. The Power Sync case would allow me to place all of our iPods in a secure location overnight and retrieve them the next day fully charged and ready for student use. This case would also allow us to take our iPods into the field as we study our local pond for our Disney Planet Challenge project. When using iPods as a notetaking and research tool students use less paper which assists with conservation and helps teach the importance of protecting our environment.

 

With your assistance my students would no longer have to worry about having low batteries and devices that need to be charged. This one tool would make learning with technology reliable and dependable. Thank you for considering this project, your donations are more than just a contribution, they are a gift of knowledge that will be unwrapped daily

 

My students need an iPod sync case to sync and charge multiple iPods simultaneously and to better understand the convenience associated with technological advances. details»   <--- click for the cost accounting and donors
