Merry Christmas! Did you get everything you wanted?
Like, did you get the new iPad or the iPad mini? Or maybe the Nexus 7 or Nexus 10? Or perhaps the Microsoft Surface or the Kindle Fire HD or the Nook HD+ or the Samsung Galaxy Note?
If so, congratulations! I’m jealous.
But now you face a problem. What should you do with your old E Ink Kindle? Do you keep it and promise to use it as a dedicated reading device? Or do you scrap it for your fancy new tablet, which can do practically everything?
Never fear! If you decide to upgrade to your new tablet, you can donate your used Kindle to my ninth grade students in Oakland and San Francisco. They love to read, and they love Kindles, and they would be very happy to receive your donation.
So far, generous donors have contributed 19 Kindles to my classroom. You could be the next generous donor!
All you have to do is fill out a five-second form on the Kindle Classroom Project page, and I’ll let you know next steps. Please consider donating your Kindle. You won’t regret it. Thank you!
