Donors Choose and Contests

Helping public schools, winning prizes, sending a crazy lady in a tomato costume out in public.

E pluribus lycopersicum

Ten years ago, Tomato Nation and Donors Choose joined forces for the first time, bringing Orwell and Salinger and Alcott to classrooms in NYC. A lot has changed since the halcyon days of collecting your donations via PayPal and sending them to DC HQ via passenger pigeon. Two things, though, remain the same.

1. Kids need school supplies.
2. Tomato Nation readers are the best.

It’s all about the Hamiltons, friends. Stay tuned.
