Here’s a good one. If you have $500 to contribute, it will link you up with a classroom, with a specific teacher who has specific needs for his or her class. You make the contribution on-line; that teacher’s ‘electronic wallet’ gets filled with $500 to buy the stuff she or he needs; he or she e-mails you a thank-you report.
It’s incredibly efficient – largely runs itself, like eBay or something – yet gives you the ‘high touch’ one-on-one sense you really know where your money is going, and that you are making a difference in kids’ lives.
Charles and I have adopted a couple of classrooms. Care to join us? Right now, there are 3,913 classrooms with their hands up for you to choose among.
