That $500 donation — the largest amount that DonorsChoose is matching this week as part of its Teacher Appreciation promotion — instantly doubled to a whopping $1,000.
This $1,000 donation marks the second major gift from DSW. Read about the first $1,000 donation last December.
Isn’t this amazing? Isn’t this slightly crazy?
I am astounded. I am intensely appreciative.
Thank you, DSW! Your contribution continues to encourage me to think bigger about what’s possible. I am no longer thinking small.
For example: Why stop at three classrooms (my current goal for next year)? Why not try to distribute Kindles to every ninth grader at a school?
Also: Why not proceed seriously to achieve classroom library mirroring, where every title on the Kindles has a physical counterpart on the shelves?
And one last thing: Why not think of making the Kindle Classroom Project into a full-fledged nonprofit organization?
All of these are reachable dreams because of this latest large donation. Thank you again, DSW!
