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. 🙂
