Making It Happen

 


If you have a dream activity, project, or just a need for your classroom donorschoose can help make it happen.  When we started virtual teaching something just felt off and sitting all day was hard for me.  I'm a very active person and I realized I missed standing up.  Through donorschoose I was able to get a stand up desk and it makes a HUGE difference.  For me, it make virtual teaching seem more normal.  

COVID has created many challenges in how I typically run my classroom and I was able to get supplies to still have activities at their desk.  If you don't like asking others for money, donorschoose has match offers which allow you to fund your project without asking others.  I typically use a match offer plus double or triple match days to fund my project.  A double or triple match day is mostly random but the site will tell you what days any money donated to your project will be double. This makes an easy way to take that $25 gift card you get from a match offer and turn it into $50.  

If you are new to donorschoose, start here.

If at any point you need help creating a project, picking resources, or setting up an account let me know.
