If You Can Read This…

If you can read this…just thank a teacher! This may be an anonymous quote, but it is still very true and very powerful.

Whether you were a book worm or the class clown, your schooldays were filled with indelible lessons that helped shape who you are today. Perhaps at the time you didn’t appreciate those lectures on molecules or geography exams but without your education, you’d be an entirely different person and this might be gibberish.

DonorsChoose
was started by a teacher for teachers, and they have made it as easy as 1-2-3 to ensure that today’s pupils in public schools across America have what they need to thrive in the classroom.

1Where do you want to donate?
2. Pick by region, project, class level or even a teacher.
3. Donations are fast and you can give as little as $10. You will get a personal note back from the teacher and the students when the project goal is completed!

Maybe you had a crush on your 5th grade science teacher? Or your  7th grade choir teacher turned you into a Karaoke King? From crayons to computers and literature to jump ropes, you will be making a difference for children from pre-K- 12 by joining other donors to raise the funds required to bring a project to fruition.

Here is your chance to give thanks or apologize for something that went down during your school years … Be True to Your School!

Thanks parents. :) Some teachers are idiots and I don't thank a lot of them that I've had because they are completely useless.
