Thankful for...

It is that time of year when we all pause to think about what we are thankful for. Today my students finished some incredibly thoughtful thank you letters to the generous citizen philanthropists who have funded our Garden Stepping Stone Mosaic project on DonorsChoose. I dropped the envelope in the mail and when I got home I found a gift card waiting for me in my email.
I am thankful for the opportunity to volunteer with DonorsChoose. It is a wonderful charitable organization and I love the fact that through volunteering my time to screen proposals, I am able to earn a gift card each month. I dedicate these gift cards to paying it forward. My class has received some wonderful materials through generous donations over the years. In return, I try to show my appreciation by helping to fund the projects of other teachers.
Do you have a project posted on DonorsChoose right now? Could you use a little help getting it funded? If your answer is yes then please follow the steps below to link up. On Friday, I will choose a few projects  and will share some of my blessings with you and your students!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Amy - Thanks for sharing your project. Unfortunately, I've already held the drawing for this set of gift cards. I see you teach here in CCS too. I'll see what I can do to drum up some help for your project! Good luck!
