As a teacher of 15 years, I had never heard of #BestSchoolDay until about 10 minutes ago when I went to my Donor’s Choose (What’s this?  Click on the link to my post all about it.) page to see if my project had received any new funding.  I couldn’t believe my teary eyes when I saw that I had been fully funded.  Thanks to my cousin and #BestSchoolDay.

What is #BestSchoolDay?  A Huffington Post article filled me in …

Today, more than 50 actors, athletes and founders are stepping up to provide a boost to those students and their teachers. They’ve created a philanthropic flash mob, giving more than $14 million to 11,000 classroom project requests across America.


I don’t know who those 50 generous people are, but I wanted to throw out a giant THANK YOU out into the universe!  I’d also like to send out a giant THANK YOU to the regular people who generously donate to organizations like Donor’s Choose on a daily basis.  I never expected my project to get fully funded so quickly and I am excited that I will be able to use my new technology equipment this school year!

What a great feeling I have right now.  🙂
