Reminder: Donors Choose

By Phil Plait | October 12, 2011 12:17 pm

Just a quick reminder: I’m participating in a blogger’s challenge with Donors Choose to raise money to get science supplies for classrooms in need. I have added a link in the sidebar of the blog (just below the picture of me) so that you can see how much has been raised, and which also provides a link to the donation page.

If you can’t donate, that’s fine, but if you could, please help spread the word through the social networks; Twitter, Facebook, Google+, whatever you can. This is a great way to get people to contribute directly to kids who need to learn about the joy and wonder of exploring the Universe. Thanks!

    As a well-paid Dane I pay over 50% of my income to taxes. Taxes which, aside from making schools and universities free, health care free, pensions free, etc, also go to needy organizations including foreign support. As a Dane, your call for extra support has no effect on me. Just want to make that clear.

    Best regards, Jens

    Greetings and Salutations…..
    @Jens….that seems like a lot to have removed from one’s income…but then the list of items provided for it is even more impressive. It would be interesting to see what America would look like under a similar plan.
    I assume, though that your tax rate is on a Federal level. Are there local taxes, sales/VAT on food and other items too? If so, what does that add to the tax burden. Also, is the system a “progressive” one where much lower incomes have credits applied to leave them with more cash, or is it a flat tax?
