Classes are starting back up again and that means thousands of underfunded schools and teachers are in need again.
This weekend, for any donation you make to projects on DonorsChoose.org, a crowdfunding platform for teachers that was featured as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies this year, none other than Bill and Melinda Gates could help your donation go further.
Friday through Sunday, for all projects that raise 50% of their goal, the Gates Foundation will contribute the other half. So, say a $500 project raises $250 in donations—the Gates Foundation will give the other $250 (it will spend up to $1 million dollars). Essentially, it’s a 50%-off clearance sale on doing good.
Your first kiss isn’t as important as your last. The math test really didn’t matter. The pie really did. The stuff you’re good at and the stuff you’re bad at are just different parts of the same thing. Same goes for the people you love and the people you don’t—and the people who love you and the people who don’t. The only thing that mattered was that you cared about a few people. Life is really, really short.
