Donate $20 to High School Science and Get a $25 Gift Certificate to Pieces by Polly
If you're a long time reader of my blog, you may know that after getting his PhD in Chemistry, my husband decided he wanted to teach high school...so we moved to a super tiny town in rural Washington State where he teaches chemistry, physics, and physical science at a small town high school.
He's currently working to get supplies to provide enrichment opportunities to get the kids here really excited about science, through a website called DonorsChoose.Org. It's a site that lets teachers put up projects and then donors can donate as much or as little as they want to fund whatever projects sound most awesome to them.
Right now, my husband is trying to get a telescope, so he can start having some astronomy nights to benefit our entire school district. (We have our elementary, middle, and high school all on the same campus in different buildings.)
This week there are some unique opportunities to have DonorsChoose match donation funds to make your donation go a bit farther. Through TODAY 3/12/2014 if you donate AND use the code INSPIRE at checkout, a third party will MATCH your donation. (So a $20 donation would equal $40.)
PLUS they're running a promotion where the more different people who donate at least $20 will earn Eric a gift certificate (up to $3000) that he could put toward this project or a future project.
So in an effort to get more individuals to donate, I'm offering a $25 gift certificate to Pieces by Polly to anyone who donates $20 to my husband's project. $25 is enough to cover most items (in some cases two) in my shop including shipping. My offer is good on donations made through Monday, March 17 2014 or until the project is funded..and your gift certificate to Pieces by Polly is good through the end of the year. DonorsChoose doesn't tell us how much each person donates, so to redeem your gift certificate, you'll need to forward me the confirmation email you get after making your donation (just make sure to remove any of your financial information!)
If you'd like to donate to help our school get a telescope, you can go here. (And please, please remember the INSPIRE code, so your donation gets matched.)
Then email me at piecesbypolly (at) gmail (dot) com to get your gift certificate.
Thanks so much for your support!
