I have started a new area on our blog.TheSage.com site where we will focus on our communities and improvement. This category is called Community Pursuits. I would like to encourage dialog with all our readers on the site blog.TheSage.com even though this blog gets reposted on Facebook and other sites. Having access to all the comments our readers have shared is important for ongoing creative thought. This category will be used about once a week and will focus on community improvement, relationship improvement and amazing happenings around the globe. If you want to share something, please send me a message through our Contact Us page and select Blog Team – Community Pursuits.
Last week I came across a site called DonorsChoose.org while trying to find a home for various supplies that are too good to throw away. The concept was reduce our surroundings, offer goods for reuse and recycle what was left. While DonorsChoose.org does not take in-kind gifts, I did find some special projects going on right in our back yard. Should I say front yard? Thomas Edison Charter School South Campus is located down our private lane and across the street. I can see it from our front door. On the DonorsChoose.org site I ran across this school posting a need for donors to help kids learn about space education. See the project here: Space Education Project.
Anyone can use DonorsChoose.org and I would like to ask our readers to donate a few dollars to this space education program and review the rest of the projects needing funding on DonorsChoose.org. I don’t know the teacher in this project, nor do I know anyone who attends Thomas Edison Charter School (South or North campuses). Would you readers look for schools in your area and find a project or two that needs assistance? Please post your comments on this blog with a link to the project you are choosing to help fund. As a group I think we can satisfy funding on several projects around the US. I am offering $50 each to the next ten projects that our readers will share. Remember, you must post on blog.TheSage.com to be counted AND when you find a project to donate to, include in the description of your donation why you chose that project and that you want TheSage.com to give too. I will post in the comments of this post what projects we have given too and I will have Andee send messages on Twitter. I’m thinking it is possible to give these funds away today! What do you think?
Check it out! I think 10 projects around the country which get our attention will be many teachers and children that are benefiting.
Let me know your comments.
