Thank you so much to everyone who donated to a classroom project on #GivingTuesday and to all the teachers who advocated for their students. Over 17,000 donors came together to make it the single biggest day in DonorsChoose.org history, completing 3,210 projects and sending $1.8 million to classrooms.
Thanks to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, that giving spirit lives on. A week after #GivingTuesday, 100 lucky people woke up to a little bit of magic in their inbox. Those lucky 50 teachers and 50 donors each won $5,000 in DonorsChoose.org credits that they can use to bring classroom dreams to life. We can’t wait to see which projects they support! Congratulations to the giveaway winners and all of the teachers who had a classroom project supported on #GivingTuesday!
We’re guessing they feel a little something like this right now.
