Donor’s Choice is a cool charity that lets ordinary people support specific school projects. These projects are everything from getting a copy of the current reading assignment for every kid in the class, to bookshelves, to musical instruments, to computers. You can give as little or as much as you like.
The best part? (Especially for procrastinators.) You can give gift certificates for the program. The recipient gets to choose which project they want to support.
I made a giving page that collects the projects I saw as I was browsing that I’d love to see supported.
Please go take a look and help out. Give what you can. Help kids get the books and supplies they need. Heck, encourage your local youth group, book group, or church to sponsor a project.
