Saving Dollarsand Sense

Thanks to all of you who nominated projects from the site.

It has been very difficult for me to only choose 3 projects to vote on because I believe that all of the projects that were nominated are really great projects.  I was happy to see a couple of the projects have already received their complete funding, and like to think that the generosity of the Saving Dollars and Sense community here may have had a little something to do with it!

Again, if you want to give on your own you can use the code SAVINGS and is going to match your donation dollar for dollar up to $100, meaning if you donate $10 then it automatically doubles to $20.

I wish I was able to help every one of these projects reach their goals!

Because I am unable to only choose 3, I will list all of the projects below that are still in need of funding.  These teachers are asking for ordinary school tools like dictionaries, books, & art supplies.

On Monday I will donate $75 to one of the projects below that you choose!

Requesting 6 Help-Yourself Book Boxes, labels and labeling pockets, and new chapter books for our classroom

Requesting a Classroom Set of The American Heritage College Dictionary for her students 

Requesting LeapFrog Tag Reading System to aid in their reading progress 

Requesting 2 Apple iPod touches and protective cases to provide differentiated instruction with technology in Language Arts and Mathematics

Requesting 25 subscriptions to SuperScience and a Secrets of Science Games Library to learn more about science and the world around them

Requesting 4 internet tablets to help incorporate technology into our classroom 

Requesting 2 pads of tracing paper and 55 stretched canvas for painting 

Requesting 3 book organizers to store all the wonderful books we have, and they also need a cart so we have a place to put everything for writer’s workshop

Please take a moment and help decide who should get our $75 donation. Please keep it to only one vote per person to keep this fair for everyone.

The voting is closed.

As you can see these are some VERY worthy projects.  I hope that some of us here in the SD&S community might consider donating a little to them since it is clear that this $75 donation will not be able to help all of the need that is there.

Remember every little bit helps, and EVERY SINGLE DONATION GETS DOUBLED through February 24th when you use the code SAVINGS up to $100!
