Eduwonk readers will en masse enter silly contests to win free CDs or to win a man-purse, but the response to a request to help a couple of teachers trying to launch a small initiative in LA is underwhelming. Even if you just have a few dollars to give, they’re needed and in-kind help is especially appreciated. The team needs t-shirts, transportation, and meals for the day of the competition as well as a lot of help getting ready. Email us at ‘education AT dlcppi.org’ and we’ll put you in touch with the teachers leading the project.
Remember, for large donations of time or donations of more than $100, Eduwonk will kick in a personalized, signed copy of Wendy Kopp’s recent book about Teach For America. We’ll handle getting it signed and shipped for you. Makes a great holiday gift!
