Donors Choose Social Media Challenge

donorsDuring the month of October, Nosh With Me will be participating in the DonorsChoose.org’s Social Media Challenge! Donors Choose is a charity that that funds classroom projects in public schools, using the Web to match teacher project requests with donors. Nosh With Me has selected two projects to try to fund.

The first project is requesting 27 copies of I Never Saw Another Butterfly, an incredible collection of poems and pictures written and drawn by children in the Terezin Concentration Camp during World War II. The second project is requesting 20 sets of knives for a culinary class in which many of the students are hoping for scholarships to attend culinary schools after high school.

There are many, many, other projects that need funding, and it would be amazing if we could fund the first two and move on to a third, fourth, or fifth! *So, as an added incentive to give to a good cause, all readers who donate via the Nosh With Me giving page will be entered in a contest to win a dozen cookies, baked in the Nosh With Me kitchen! Donating is easy–simply click on the link in the sidebar (over there to the left, then scroll down) and you’re all set. Let’s help some kids! And if you know of a project you think I should add to the Nosh With Me giving page, please let me know.

*U.S. and Canada only.

    What a great idea! I’m checking it out as we speak… err… type. As I type.
