I was lucky enough on Friday to be given a $25 gift card to DonorsChoose, an online charity that allows you to fund classroom projects for schools across the country. I chose to give to the Cecil Floyd Elementary School in Joplin that helps kids with special needs. The school has been devastated by the May tornado that struck the area.
Shortly after making the gift, I received this beautiful reply from the teacher.
It was a great example of making a donor (me) feel very special — even though I had given a very small contribution.
Check out DonorChoose and find a school project you might want to support.
