The Project has gone international again!

2013-05-07 18.21.42favicon It’s been a big day at the Kindle Classroom Project!

In the morning, I received an email from DonorsChoose that all donations would be doubled through Friday to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.

So I quickly wrote a post, and just a few hours later, $200 has already been donated to purchase new books. Quite impressive.

The donors (so far): Laura (San Francisco), Stuart (San Francisco), Iris (San Diego), Michele (San Francisco), and LeAnne (Fremont).

I must also point out: All five are repeat, sustaining donors. Thank you.

But that’s not all!

Just a few minutes ago, I got home from work to find Kindle #49, the fourth new Kindle purchased directly from my students’ Amazon wishlist. (Go Preeti! Go Lesley!) Here’s evidence:

The donor remains anonymous. But here’s where it gets exciting. My detective work has confirmed that the donor lives in Cambodia. The Kindle Classroom Project has gone international again! This is the second overseas Kindle in Project history! (The first came last December from Jo in Surrey, England.)

You just never know what’s going to happen. You go to work, minding your own business, and by the end of the day, there’s $200 donated and a Kindle from Cambodia.

Let’s keep this hubbub going! Who wants to guess where the next Kindle will come from? I say Nepal. Or maybe Ghana. favicon
