Boost your Charitable Donation this Holiday

We've previously written about DonorsChoose.org, but it is a favorite -- of us (see previous post), Stephen Colbert, and Oprah's Ultimate Favorite Things 2010.  In honor of the Thanksgiving Holiday, we encourage you to say "thanks" to the teachers educating students around the nation.  Two ways you can give back this weekend:

  • Bing is hosting a $1 Million Dollar Giving Challenge to help schools, through January 15, 2011.  Click the orange "Click here" text and then the orange "Help now!" button to get started.  From there you can donate $5 by entering your email and making Bing your homepage, or easily give $1 by clicking the button on the right.  It's that simple!
  • Want to make a bigger impact and choose where your donation goes?  Groupon is offering a 60% discount on DonorsChoose.org giftcards.  Spend $10 for $25, $20 for $50, or $40 for $100 worth of aid!  The Groupon price is still tax deductible and made possible through the Pershing Square Foundation.  Once you have your online giftcard, you can choose your favorite public school project to donate to.

Give a little.  Get a lot.  Happy Thanksgiving!
