A place for kids to sit

October 10, 2011

One of the Donor’s Choose projects that I am featuring in my challenge is for

A Place to Sit:

Have you ever had to sit on a dirty floor? This is what my students must do each day in my classroom, we don’t have a rug or carpet in my class so my students have to sit on the floor to learn. The floor has dirt from our playground and in the winter it has small puddles of water from boots.

The primary school is in Sanford ME and is a high poverty school. Looks like a nice location.

Brother or Sister…. Can you spare a dime?

    Well done yesterday, people. Your generosity brought this project down to arm’s reach. Only $130 to go…can we take another bite out of that today, my friends? No need to wait for the last minute.

    Just remember, they have no rug and Winter is Coming…

    I made a donation last night through your blog that is not showing. The donation was for “Stolen Cells of HL”‘s project. My bank account shows that the money is being paid. I assume that there is a time lag between donation time and the time it gets reported to your blog.

    Big thanks to all of my readers, including you-know-who-y0u-are who polished off the project, for pushing this one through to funding!

    not entirely sure who you are of course. Is it possible that you donated through another challenge link or through just plain searching on Donor’s choose? that way the donation would go through (and I see one through Odyssey’s challenge that is approximately the right timing) but it wouldn’t necessarily show up in my scoreboard. anyway, the credit is less important than the fact you helped out some kids!!! thanks.
