Oh, yeah, and I suppose I should do some actual learning, too.
One of my favorite parts of the website is that during checkout, you can choose to donate some or all of your profits to charity! Cash4Books is partnered with DonorsChoose.org, which allows you choose how much you would like to donate. If you choose to donate books, you will receive a code that you can use at the DonorsChoose website to select which project to donate to. There are over twelve thousand classroom projects to choose from, and you can sort by urgency to view classrooms with the greatest need, or you can search by subject or even by special needs. As I have shared in the past, my nephew struggles with autism, so it was very exciting to me that I could donate to any of almost 400 classrooms who need things like room dividers to keep their students focused. I could also see how much more money needed to be raised to meet the goal, as well as how many others have donated so far. And one of the best parts is that once a goal is met and the project is funded, the classrooms send in pictures and thank yous which are shared on their blog. Since 2002, DonorsChoose.org has raised $53,270,171 and helped 3,278,062 students.
