Help Black Bloggers Raise Money For School Projects
Some Black Bloggers in the Afrospear , spurred on by science educator The Urban Scientist, have recently come together to help raise money for various students and school projects.
You may already be familiar with the Donor's Choice website. As describe at the site:
"DonorsChoose.org is a simple way to provide students in need with resources that our public schools often lack. At this not-for-profit web site, teachers submit project proposals for materials or experiences their students need to learn. These ideas become classroom reality when concerned individuals, whom we call Citizen Philanthropists, choose projects to fund."
Well during October, Donors Choice is holding a blogger challenge; a friendly competition, as it is described, to raise some early school year funds for kids.
Various Afrospear bloggers have come together under the group Black Bloggers for Education. They have set up pages at the site promoting different projects that you can choose from to donate to.
BlackPerspective.net and the Eddie Griffin blog are helping to promote the effort.
So if you have even five bucks to spare, please go by and give to education; and show that Black folks do indeed care about more than just athletic achievement or kicking a flow.
