For those of you that are always on the lookout for great organizations I would like to suggest you consider www.DonorsChoose.org
It is a great organization that allows your donations to directly impact the lives of children. If you currently looking for a way your company can support your local community, I highly recommend you look at DonorsChoose.org. Here is another letter I just recieved from a classroom my companies recently supported:
I would like to express to you how grateful we are for your contributions to our flag football project. My students were, and are still, so excited about getting the new equipment. You have helped my students develop skills in kicking, throwing, catching, strategizing, and teamwork. The equipment has benefited all grade levels, from Kindergarten through 6th grade. We have played flag football with the equipment, and we have also played lead-up games, flag tag, and sharks and minnows. The cones have been very helpful on an almost daily basis with establishing boundaries for the students in their games.
Our school, as with many schools these days, has limited resources, and we have a very limited budget for Physical Education equipment. Without your donation our project would not have been possible and would have had to remain in the dreams of my students. You have helped to make their dreams a reality, and we are so very thankful. Know that you have made a difference to so many.
The ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death and that when their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions inevitably determining whether they were able to enter or not by their answer. Those two question were: ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ and ‘Has your life brought joy to others?’”
