Help DonorsChoose win a Crunchie

Posted by Donna Callejon on December 22nd, 2007

Our buddies over at DonorsChoose are the best at rallying people to help them win awards. They won the BIG A$# Amazon award in 2005, have been on Oprah, and now are finalists for the Tech Crunch “Crunchie” Awards.

Not to dis the other great finalists…but DonorsChoose is a special friend to us. In fact, just this week we received a sizeable grant due to an introduction made by Charles.

So, if you have a moment, click here and vote for DonorsChoose.

Kudos to our buddies at DonorsChoose

Last week our good friends at DonorsChoose announced what we knew had been coming for a while – their nation-wide expansion.

Here’s one for the good guys!  DonorsChoose, led by an amazing school teacher-turned-social entrepreneur, Charles Best (see pic below), has successfully facilitated about $15 million to classrooms in several regions of the US over the past five years.  Having received expansion capital in the form of grants from our common supporter, the Omidyar Network, and others, DC is off and running to reach every public school classroom teacher who needs a little extra support to offer innovative and engaging programs.

If education is your passion, check them out.  And BEST of luck to the DonorsChoose team.
