I am a teacher and a mom. The most profound experience with teaching children about giving is my experience with Donor's Choose. I love writing and I use examples from my own life when teaching writing. The students love to read what I write and learn that one can do things with their writing.
Last year, my students went on a writing campaign to request people to donate to our class so that we can get some books that we desperately needed for our reading program. Unfortuntely, we did not get as much as a letter saying their sorry that they couldn't donate.
I learned about Donor's Choose from a friend that is a teacher. I decided to request the books from Donor's Choose. In a short amount of time, we found out that we were funded! Yeah!
The students learned that you don't have to know the person to give to them. They are delighted in the spirit of giving. They have been looking for ways to give to others.
If this was not enough, we have been surprised that my class has been blessed with another set of books from an unknown donor.
Donor's Choose is a blessing to the teachers that are funded. We appreciate you connecting teachers with donors.
