Today, October 15th, kicks off the ScienceBlogs DonorsChoose.org campaign, which will run until Nov. 5. This is an annual even that benefits school kids all over the country. If you are unfamiliar with DonorsChoose, you should check them out now (then donate on my page).
In honor of kicking off the event, I'm going to shamelessly repost from last year when I "borrowed" from my daughter's favoarite book, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus. I'm hoping that if I convince you of the awesomeness of this book, the publisher will look the other way when it comes to the following, blatant, copyright infringement. So, yeah, the book is awesome and you should buy a copy now (I hope that's enough....).
Now where was I? Oh right, Don't let the Pigeon Drive the Bus is an award winning kids book about, well, telling a pigeon it can't drive a bus. The pigeon tries hard to convince you, but he may have better luck convincing you to donate to school kids from the poorest regions of our country. There will be a donation link to the right soon and I think my readers can kick the Everyone Poops out of the other pages that will be pleading for your money. And if we don't I'm unleashing the pigeon.
Alright, maybe I got carried away, but you get the point. I've chosen a number of science-related projects from all over the country for you to donate to. A lot of these classrooms need supplies to help educate the scientists of tomorrow and this is one way you can directly affect students, maybe even in your home state. Go check it out!!!
