Donors Choose 2012 – help support the nation’s future!

By Christie Wilcox | October 15, 2012 2:11 pm

It’s that time of the year again: time to give what you can to help students get the education they deserve.

Every year, science bloggers from around the interwebs team up with to help teachers. Science blogging networks battle to raise the most money to buy supplies for needy classrooms across the country.

The challenge runs from now until November 5th. I sincerely hope you’ll follow this link here and join the crusade. I chose to focus my fundraising on projects here in Hawaii because the education system here is dismal – the teachers here need all the help they can get to rise above some of the worst public education infrastructure I’ve ever seen. You should also check out all the other SciAm bloggers and their projects – let’s show the other networks that our readers are the most giving!

Please consider making a donation, even if it’s small. And if you can’t afford to donate, you can still help out by spreading the word on Facebook, Twitter and beyond!

Donate through my Science Sushi giving page, or any of the other science blogs!
