This morning I was reading about just doing a small thing that can create a big ripple. My small thing to do? Donate to Donors Choose.
If you haven’t heard of them, Donors Choose is a non-profit group that funds grants for teachers. It is a simple process (grants can be written in an hour or so) that can net you great results.
As I work with teachers across the U.S., they often tell me, “I’d love to have a big book easel, but our school can’t afford to buy me one.” That’s where Donors Choose comes in! Write a mini-grant for a big book easel (or crayons and paper and scissors or a classroom digital camera, etc.) and get what you need for your kids.
Here are some of the thank-you’s I’ve received from funding projects at Donors Choose. I hope you’ll consider either writing a grant or helping to fund one.
What small thing will you choose to do today to help someone else?
