So the amazing women at ScienceWomen started a readers' challenge for through Donors Choose. This website takes applications from public school teachers that are in less fortunate areas of our country for a listing on their site to raise money for school materials. The donations are completely tax deductible and you get those great warm fuzzy feelings. This is an amazing program so I have to give kudos to Alice and ScienceWoman, the two ladies behind the blog, for sending out this challenge. Click the banner below to go to their specific challenge, in which classes chosen were science based, or click the link above to see all the ways you can help. The amounts needed are negligible and it is a shame that schools even need to ask for those quantities for simple things like rulers. Don't buy lunch today and donate $10 to a classroom. It's money better spent!
