What a waist of time. Nothing new for curious people. I can tell the guy is into video gaming a lot. Good graphics and scientific language. Using just that, does not mean it is going to be a good m. . .Read More

DonorsChoose.org is a great idea. It allows anyone and everyone to help out with as little or as much as they choose.

Basically school teachers in the US who find themselves in need, make a request, explaining exactly what they are missing from their classroom. They tell you what it is they need that would be of tremendous help, they explain what they need it for. And how it's gonna help the kids learn, and love science, possibly just as much as you do!

If you can spare a few minutes and a couple of bucks, you can be responsible for making a kid fall in love with science. A love that can last a lifetime.

You the donor, get to pick exactly where your money goes. There are literally thousands of 'projects' you can choose from. I am sure if you browse through the list, at least one will be near and dear to your heart. And perhaps you will choose to donate a few dollars to the cause, in place of your morning coffee.

As a huge bonus, this month, under 'Science bloggers for students', all us science bloggers are trying to get as many people involved as possible. You see, for every dollar you donate, HP will match it, and we'll get double the impact and double the help!

So what do you say? Can you throw a couple of bucks at this? It is for a great cause!

Some of the bloggers here have graciously agreed to give out prizes, take embarrassing pictures, and some other incentives to help out. I haven't really thought of any that would work, but hey, I am open to suggestions, and willing to do my part to help the cause.

So if it'll take some incentive for you to donate, and you got a suggestion for what that incentive might be... bring it. I'm listening.


You can check out my giving page here. All that is really is a list of some of the many awesome projects I hope to see funded. But you don't have to contribute to the ones I chose, you can choose any project you like. If you click to it through my page, it still gets the HP bump. Or at least, I think it does.

 

Anyway, be generous if you can, after all, these kids may one day discover the meaning of life! You never know!

Donate in place of the morning coffee!?!  Maybe in place of the afternoon snack....   That sounds more reasonable.....

Hehe.. perhaps you're right.. I'm not a coffee person, so I mess up on the subtleties. But yes, ok, afternoon snack substitute it is!

Yea.. it was a silly suggestion.. I should have known morning coffee was the wrong way to go.


How do you feel about 'After gym protein shake'? Maybe that would be ok to miss out on one day? :)
