has partnered with my fellow contributors to the Silicon Valley Moms Blogs
this month to run the DonorsChoose.org Blogger Challenge
. Last year they helped 75,000 kids get needed supplies. Now that all of us bloggers are on the case, I know we can help even more kids.
The premise behind DonorsChoose.org is simple and effective. Teachers request what they need and write a description of how the item will benefit the children. Some of the requests are basic, others to enhance the education environment in a creative way. Trust me, you’ll be bowled over as you read though the many requests.
You choose how much you want to contribute. Your money goes directly to the classroom/project of your choice.
So please, if you have a moment click though this link and contribute during the month of October. And know you made a child smile and a teacher very, very happy.
Take a look at the widget in my sidebar. This widget keeps track of every donation that goes though our link. Use the link directly above, or click through via the link in the sidebar. Watch it grow!
Oh, how I wish I was going to BlogHer. Alas, it was not in the cards for me this year (money-wise, or schedule-wise). So I will need to live vicariously through my blogging buds as they jet-off to San Francisco and blog about all the things I am missing!
I am however, very excited to be following my Silicon Valley Moms/friends as they embark on a road trip only Thelma and Louise would rival:
Take five moms, give them a Chevy Tahoe Hybrid SUV, add wireless internet access in the vehicle, a GPS system, cutting-edge cameras and video recording technology, video games, music, gasoline, hotel stays, food, mainstream media covering the road trip on the internet & television – and see what happens as these hilarious and irreverent women drive coast to cost, picking up their fellow SV Moms Group Contributors and blogging it all on the road….. Seriously, you will NOT want to miss following these bloggers as they make their way across the country, from Northern Virginia to San Francisco.
Go visit Silicon Valley Moms Group Summer Road Trip ’08 and follow along with me as my friends traverse the country on their way to BlogHer.
I’m officially jealous! Good luck ladies!!
