Help schoolchildren and win fabulous prizes!

My pal (and former/founding Metroblogging NYC author) Sars over at Tomato Nation is awesome. Why, you ask? Because she is running a contest on her site where participants can win fabulous prizes. Which is awesome in and of itself, but the way to enter the contest is even more awesome – you donate to one of several challenges she’s set up at Donors Choose.

Donors Choose is a website that allows teachers to ask for funding for classroom projects and lets individuals choose which projects to fund. It’s a way to bridge the gap between what public school budgets provide and what students need.

The challenges she’s set up (including the current challengeare part of the Blogger Challenge at Donors Choose, and we at Metroblogging have set up a challenge too. Sars is totally kicking our butts right now, but remember that you can donate to as many projects and challenges as you want – and even small amounts count.

Almost all of the local NY metro projects on Sars’ challenge have been funded, but many NYC projects are still in need of funding in the Metroblogging challenge. You can also enter preferences if you join the site and they will let you know if local projects come up that need funding. And if you know any teachers, let them know about the site so they can get funding for their projects!
