I just got a package in the mail today from DonorsChoose.org – Not unbidden – I made a donation in October. But this package blew my mind.
I’m sitting here in tears…tears for the heartbreak and joy of how gifting so little can mean so much to others….tears for the pleasure of seeing the joy in those kids eyes because of the project I funded…tears for the joy of seeing the results of offering just a little bit of love where I could –
The package has pictures – lots and lots of pictures – and thank you notes from the children who were touched by the donation…
The best part is – doing something that for me was small and easy, contributed to delight and play and awareness and growth for 20 kids.
Check out DonorsChoose.org, won’t you?
- You get to pick what project you fund.
- You even get to pick WHERE your donation goes.
- You get updates and feedback when it’s done.
I chose to fund a whole project, and even *that* was possible with just a small donation. I funded this project with $300, but for me that was totally easy at the time.
Even if you only have $5 you can gift these kids.
