Give my students a grad gift!

Update: This project was funded in less than 24 hours! Thank you to Denise, Jenni, and Iris for your generous contributions!

Update #2: Ramir and Dezmond won! They’re both very happy. I’ll try to post more info soon.

 My students graduate on June 2 and go off to college and into the world.

I remember one of the first things I did when I got to UC Berkeley. I bought a subscription to The New York Times. I’d grown up with the San Francisco Chronicle, but I noticed that my peers had upgraded to The Times. Getting a subscription was one of the best decisions I made. Twenty years later, I still get home delivery now.

I’d like your help in giving two lucky students print subscriptions when they get to college in September.

The college student rate is $3 a week. That’s $36 for a three-month subscription. After that, the student will decide whether to extend the subscription.

The home delivery subscription will also allow the student full online access to nytimes.com.

Interested? Just click the ChipIn! button over on the right sidebar. Donate as much or as little as you want.

Thank you so much!

      Go Denise! You can send checks to me at Leadership High School, 241 Oneida Ste. 301, SF CA 94112. Or you can pay by credit card or PayPal by clicking on the ChipIn! button over on the right sidebar.

      Thank you, thank you!

    OK, I feel stupid, I can’t find the “chip in” button on the right side. Help! I want to use a cc.

      No problem! On the right side of the screen, toward the top, underneath the search box, is a widget with the title “2 NY Times Subscriptions.”

      It looks like this: http://awesomescreenshot.com/0735w1yb7.

      On the bottom of that box is the orange ChipIn! button.

      Hope that helps!

      Once you’ve found the ChipIn! button, you might confused by the next screen, too. PayPal hides the credit card option because they want you to use their service. Check your FB inbox in a few hours. I think I have a solution. Thank you again, Denise!

Please share your brilliant insights!
