I want to help Silicon Valley Moms blog spread the word about Donors Choose? It's a fantastic program which raises money for very specific school program needs. I've got a post up about and East Palo Alto school which needs some reading stations, and a class at my own kid's school is looking for an LCD Projector. But look through the list for a cause close to your heart. Lots of reading, writing, art, critical skills for the little and big humans of our future.
Like they say (completely paraphrased), we're waiting for the day when our schools get all the money they need and the government has to hold a bakesale (oh, the reminds me, bake cookies for the walk-a-thon bake sale), but until then a few dollars here and there for all of us will really make a difference.
