This past summer, our staff got a special visit from Los Angeles Galaxy soccer star and DonorsChoose.org supporter Landon Donovan. Although he’s been very busy becoming Major League Soccer’s highest goal scorer of all time, he still took the time to answer all of our questions.
He shared with us where his passion for education comes from (his mom, a public school teacher) and why he started playing soccer in the first place (to burn off energy). He also updated our chalk wall with his autograph!
Landon told us that he’s been a “fan [of DonorsChoose.org] since Day 1,” so we are particularly excited to announce that he will be joining our National Advisory Council.
