2011 Donors Choose Science Bloggers for Students Drive Wrap-Up

The 2011 Donors Choose Science Bloggers for Students Drive has ended, with over $50,000 raised by my fellow science bloggers to bring supplies to more than 25,000students across the country! Team Ocean & Geoscience placed fourth, which isn’t too bad considering there were only four of us  (seriously, no one can touch those Freethought bloggers!).

With your help, The Contemplative Mammoth raised $759 dollars, and helped fully fund 3 projects: new teacher Mr. Petrofsky got earth science supplies, Ms. Lee’s class has microscopes, and Ms. McIllhone has built a hands-on science library for students with disabilities.The challenge is over, but the need goes on; are still three unfunded projects on my giving page, so please feel free to check it out (Mrs. Pickett only has 2 days left to raise $115 for math gadgets for her kindergartners!).

Many thanks to all my donors: Mary Beth Anzovino, Kathryn Loup, Anne Jefferson, Trompetine Nilson, Chris Rowan, Debbie Knight, Jeorg Rings, Robert Drach, Jenna Krotke, Janet Stemwedel, Eric Mallory, Kelsey Gill, Sam Gill, Jessica Blois, The DonorsChoose.org Marketing Team, Elli Goeke, and two anonymous donors!

As promised, one lucky donor gets a set of custom up-cycled science-themed marble magnets. The Random Number Generator has spoken, and the winner is: Chris Rowan of the blog Highly Allochthonous. So, Chris, what theme would you like? nce learning library for students with disabilities. There are still three unfunded projects on my giving page, and while the Challenge is over the need is always there, so feel free to check out those projects (Mrs. Pickett only has two days left to fund her proposal for hands-on math gadgets for her kindergartners!). Many heartfelt thanks to all who contributed to and signal-boosted this drive, and to my fellow science bloggers for using the Internet for the powers of good!
