Why you should follow...

@DonorsChoose on #FollowFriday !

This has been an interesting week for Culturatti Kids staffer, Amy. Every time she flies, she gets sick. And this last time was no different. And if you know Amy, you know that she likes to talk - but this "mysterious flying illness" includes losing her voice. Fun. Good thing Amy knows sign language. Bad thing that most of her friends and family don't!

Because of this, Amy had to cancel all her meetings this week including one with this week's #FollowFriday shout out. So to make up for it until we can have our chat, we wanted to share Culturatti Kid's respect for Donors Choose with all of our followers.

Donors Choose helps create 'partnerships' between teachers and people willing to give as little as $1 to help fund school projects. Teachers submit project requests to which visitors to the Donors Choose website can donate all, or a portion of the request. Once a project reaches its goal, the materials are delivered to the school. Its as easy as that. You can support as many projects as you like and you can even focus on locations that are close to you and/or projects in areas (such as arts or literature) that inspire you.

According to their impact page, Donors Choose has raised $38,736,888 to fund classroom projects throughout the country. Just image the impact your dollar could have!

Please check out their website at, and their twitter profile @DonorsChoose. Thank you for being such a great organization and we're proud to suggest you for #FollowFriday!
