I recently wrote a DonorsChoose grant to get approximately $300 in storytelling materials. If you or a relative would like to donate to this grant it will increase my chances of getting it fully funded. The grant will be up on the DonorsChoose.org website within five days after review. Today I recieved a message that any donations will be matched prior to October 15th when the code PUMPKIN is entered at the checkout. So if you can give five dollars, they will donate another five dollars toward this project for our classroom. Below is the message. I hope you can help me drum up some excitement and get these great materials for the class. They include storytelling materials for nonfiction science books by Gail Gibbons as well as story materials for Ezra Jack Keets' A Snowy Day, Audrey Wood's Quick as a Cricket and many other favorites.

This week, our Board of Directors will match every donation you receive from friends and family. You can still participate even if you don't have a project posted right now.

Send folks to http://www.donorschoose.org/we-teach/604363, where they can get you a gift card to help with your next project. If they enter the match code PUMPKIN, we'll double their gift.
Share your exciting classroom plans with your friends and family, then let them know how to help:
  1. Visit http://www.donorschoose.org/we-teach/604363
  2. Enter any dollar amount and click "Give"
  3. During check-out, enter the code PUMPKIN where it says "Match or gift code", and your donation will be matched dollar for dollar
  4. I'll get your gift card and use it for supplies for my students. You'll get a matching gift card, which you can send to me or apply to another project at DonorsChoose.org
  5. The match code PUMPKIN will be active until 11:59pm Hawaii time on Monday, October 15

Let's stock those piggy banks!
