Donors Choose...

A public service announcement:
I've heard more than a few good stories about "Donors Choose" so...

For the month of November, if you post a "thank a teacher" video to, you will get $25 to give toward any special project or classroom supply request posted to

Also, you can give a shout out to your favorite teacher on twitter -- just post #MyTeacherMyHero Teacher Name, Subject, School, City, State.

The teacher as well as the school that tallies the most mentions on #MyTeacherMyHero during American Education Week (that's this week) will each be awarded a special donation of $1,000 toward the supplies or project of their choice.

Whether it's books or beakers, for second graders or sophomores, in Honolulu or Hartford there are thousands of classroom needs represented. Since launching in 2000, has channeled over $40 million to 2.6 million students in classrooms nationwide.

A social video website, My Teacher, My Hero came together to honor those teachers who have touched lives -- with the hope that their stories will inspire others to pursue the teaching profession (if we cannot change the pay scale, then we can at least acknowledge teachers' important role in our society).
