Mrs. Shelton from Midwest City OK is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

What, They Don't Have Their Own Books?!

My students need a variety of books, to be combined with bookmarks we are coloring, to distribute to less fortunate children in our area, focusing on the homeless.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My students WILL make a huge difference in other children's lives with this project. I teach Third Grade in a high poverty area public school.

My students will be presented with an opportunity to take part in a life changing lesson. After preparing bookmarks for the requested books, we will pass the books, along with bookmarks, on to underprivileged children who do not have books of their own. Our main focus will be homeless children.

Due to the high poverty of my students, they are not financially able to afford books for this project. I am needing help in supplying books for my students to give.

Your help will allow my students to experience a life changing lesson. They will be allowed to see that they can make a difference in another person's life.
