Hello all. DonorsChoose.org is a way for teachers to request funding for tangible, immediate classroom improvements and several El Paso schools/teachers are participating and requesting help in funding items for their classroom. So I have started my own blogger challenge! All El Pasoans and former El Pasoans, I urge you to answer the call--the tug at your heartstrings for desert sunsets and the view of Star on the Mountain as your plane prepares to land.

Hello all.

DonorsChoose.org is a way for teachers to request funding for tangible, immediate classroom improvements and several El Paso schools/teachers are participating and requesting help in funding items for their classroom. So I have started my own blogger challenge!

All El Pasoans and former El Pasoans, I urge you to answer the call--the tug at your heartstrings for desert sunsets and the view of Star on the Mountain as your plane prepares to land. Support this effort!

From something as small as a reading easel to technology purchases, you can help to make a difference in your hometown.

All proposals have been reviewed by DonorsChoose.org and I am personally picking out a few that look good to me. Feel free to find others. You can view the district and school information by clicking the proposal links below. (UPDATE--I have chosen to list only one project at a time so that it can be fully funded.)

Can you spare $25 to augment the educational experiences of El Paso schoolchildren? Come on--it's easy when you think about it. That's just a handful of visits to Lumenbrite or Chico's Tacos we're talking about. So buy the small latte this week and just the single order of tacos and put your money somewhere other than, um, your mouth.

Practice philanthropy. It gets easier every time. Forward this to all your El Paso contacts. Let's see what we can do.

(To start things off, I took advantage of sixapart.com's gift certificate program and donated $30 to the reading easel project. Then I matched that with my personal funds for a grand total of $60. Will you match me?)
