PR Newswire – Press Release

“Today, more than fifty athletes, actors, founders, and philanthropists announced a surprise “flash funding” of classroom projects posted on DonorsChoose.org in communities across America. Collectively, these individuals committed over $14 million to fund nearly 12,000 projects, including books, art supplies, science equipment, field trips, and more. They are now challenging the public to join them by donating to classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org, making it a #BestSchoolDay for public school teachers and students nationwide. “We all remember special days at school, whether it was going on a field trip, doing a science experiment, or performing in a school play,” said Charles Best, founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org. “Teachers have a hard time providing these experiences when they have to go into their own pockets to buy school supplies. We’re so grateful to the people who have kicked off this philanthropic flashmob, and we hope that everyone–no matter the size of their wallet–will join this act of mass generosity by supporting a classroom project and committing to make every day a #BestSchoolDay.””(more)
