"DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America create classroom project requests, and you can give any amount to the project that inspires you. We make it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education."
Children thrive when provided with appropriate educational materials that enhance curriculum. This is a fact. Another fact? Teachers spend a large majority of their own money to provide for their classrooms. With the massive budget cuts that CPS and the state of Illinois are facing, it is more important than ever that we find alternate ways to still give our kids the best possible education. That is where you come in. Since I have started using Donor's Choose, I have had 7 projects successfully funded thanks to friends, family, parents and community members. My students have not only learned lessons from engaging in the actual materials that are donated, but they have also learned some lessons about gratitude.
