DonorsChoose Gift Certificate

Last month, I auctioned off a copy of Upgrading to PHP 5 on eBay with the proceeds going 100% to the EFF.

Today, I received an e-mail giving me a $30 gift certificate to DonorsChoose as a thank you for my eBay Giving Works listing! Cool. I didn’t know we did that.

DonorsChoose allows teachers to submit requests for projects or materials they need for their classrooms, and then allows donors to choose which ones to fund.

In recognition of my friend Jon Kline, I selected a project for the Oakland school system. It’s titled “Improve Reading Engagement with Book Club Books!“. I love the idea of students reading and discussing books in a group.

The project is now 9% of the way to it’s $762 goal. If you can, please support it, so it can achieve success.
