I hope that some of you folks can give a few dollars towards improving scientific literacy!  My fav is "Do Plants Wear Genes?"  It's too bad there isn't something like this for Canadian schools - or maybe there is and I just don't know about. Details and links below.

********************************************************************

Well, it's that time of year again.  It's the annual Donor's Choose drive to promote scientific literacy in grade school classrooms.  The LabSpaces crew has once again teamed up to select a variety of projects to to fund to help bring new materials into classrooms to enrich students and their scientific education.  Yesterday, we gave $60 to a project in Naples, FL to obtain microscopes and slides for an underpriviliged grade school classroom.  The email message from the teacher was exceedingly heartwarming:

Dear Brian, Shanna Hodgson, Lauren Ledesma and CenturyLink, 

I cannot thank you enough for your generous donation to my classroom! I can't wait to see the looks on my student's faces when I tell them what is on the way to our classroom! My students will be so excited to use this microscope! You just opened their eyes to science. We can't wait to get these great resources and put them to work in our classroom. Your genorosity means so much to my students and myself! Once again, thank you so much for opening up your hearts to my classroom. Words cannot express how grateful we are!

With gratitude,
Mrs. I

Giving to Donor's Choose is simple and every little bit helps.  I ask you to please visit our giving page where we have selected 70 projects to highlight and hopefully get funded by the end of the month.  I will be spotlighting my favorites over the coming weeks and working hard to bring science into these children's lives.  Please help me by donating and forwarding this link to as many people as you can.  It's for science :)
