Save The Day: April 13
5:30 PM update
Lean into it, y'all: $85,974, and Vanessa has a lot of cool stuff going on (scroll down) if you can help her Giving Page out.
9 AM update
$84,797 — 85K is nigh. I believe we have another match to look forward to…but it's not 'til 125K. Month's nearly half over. Let's make serious headway today. Otherwise, I'll have to threaten to sing on TV, and believe me, nooooooobody wants that.
In the meantime, reader Vanessa Y. has a handful of mini-prizes for you! Read on:
Please help support some of YOUR favorite things in the My Favorite Tomatoes Giving Page! All of these projects are from high-need, under-supported areas with students and teachers ready to make a difference. Like Mr. V trying to instill environmentalism AND community service in his students, or Mrs. R helping her students to learn English and to read.
Show them some love and get some love yourself! By donating to the My Favorite Tomatoes Giving Page, you are are eligible to get 1 of 4 $25 gift cards to either Crate & Barrel, Best Buy, Gap or Build-a-Bear (all companies that have supported DonorsChoose.org in the past). Also, for every project fully funded, a $10 bonus gift card to Starbucks will also be given to a donor to the Page. Looking to get you finished, project ending in 28 days.
Keep after it, Nation. Save this day.
