{Think About Others} DonorsChoose.org & Savings.com – Matching Donation Program Through 2/24

Submitted by on January 27, 2012 – 12:00 pm4 Comments

As a Savings.com DealPro, we are so excited to be able to share with you this very special campaign they have going on with DonorsChoose.org! If you have not heard of DonorsChoose.org before, it is an innovative online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. We hear in the news all the time about how teachers sometimes have to dig into their own pockets to get supplies for their class projects, all to help give their students a better education. This is a way to be able to give back to your community and support a deserving project!

One thing we love about being a DealPro is that Savings.com is also passionate about thinking about others and giving back. Savings.com is helping make your money go further when you give back to a school in need in the new year! Use the gift code “SAVINGS” any time between January 27th and February 24th on Donors Choose and they will match your donation up to $100.

More about DonorsChoose.org: Approximately 40 percent of schools across the U.S. use DonorsChoose.org, an innovative online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Public school teachers across the country post specific requests to support their classroom projects, ranging from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class. Visitors to the website decide which project they would like to support and DonorsChoose.org delivers materials to the school once a project reaches its funding goal.

Here are some suggested tips on how to navigate through the site to find the perfect project:
- Get local – Use their location filter to find projects in your state or hometown.
- Get inspired – What are you passionate about? The environment? Water color painting? A book you’re reading? Narrow projects by subject area, or search for what you care about in the keyword box.
- Get choosy – Sort your search results by cost, poverty level, or popularity…whatever matters most to you.

If you are a teacher, we encourage you to submit your projects to DonorsChoose.org so that others can contribute funds to them.  After submitting your project, share it with your students’ parents, friends, family, and the community.  If you are a parent, we encourage you to see if your children’s teachers have submitted a project and contribute to it. If you are a community member, we encourage you to step forward and help students get the best education they can with your help!

Let us know if you have a project on DonorsChoose.org that could use some help in contributions.  We’d love to spread the word to our readers.  Also let us know if you contributed to something on DonorsChoose.org so that we can give a shout out for that as well.

How are we contributing to DonorsChoose.org is by donating to a project in our school district. We are also passing the information on to the teachers so they can submit their projects.

Find a project on DonorsChoose.org today!
