Donor’s Choose Challenge: A Ways to Go

I am excited that just a week into this and we already raised close to $400. However, we still have a long way to go. One of our projects, Coral Reef Flip Books, needs a mere $117 before being fully funded. That’s pocket change people! Besides, who doesn’t love some flip books. Ms. M’s classroom is in a high poverty school district in Chicago. She is seeking both flip books and wide-ruled composition books for daily journaling. In her own words, “To help students become aware of endangered coral and animals of the oceans, each student will choose one kind of coral and one sea animal to research and create a flip book.” Ocean science, conservation, organismal biology, writing exercises, and flip books…that’s just good education!

Seriously though if we don’t get this project funded bad things might happen here at DSN. Something like this…
