Social Media Challenge

Welcome to the Social Media Challenge!

(aka the Philanthropic Throwdown for Public Schools)

Last year, bloggers big and small raised $270,000 to provide 65,000 students with the resources needed to learn. This year, Twitter has joined the fray, and we aim to help even more public schools.

Throw your hat in the ring, follow contestants via TweepML; or email us at smc (at) donorschoose (dot) org.
