Our ChangeMaker for August: Donors Choose

Dear ShopAnthropists!

We are in Back-to-School mode. As our nation's education budgets keep getting cut, we feel that we all need to do whatever we can to help our kids in school. That's why we selected Donors Choose for the month of August. is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need.
Here's how it works: public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on Requests range from pencils for a poetry writing unit, to violins for a school recital, to microscope slides for a biology class.
Then, you can browse project requests and give any amount to the one that inspires you. Once a project reaches its funding goal, we deliver the materials to the school.
You'll get photos of your project taking place, a thank-you letter from the teacher, and a cost report showing how each dollar was spent. If you give over $50, you'll also receive hand-written thank-you letters from the students.
At, you can give as little as $1 and get the same level of choice, transparency, and feedback that is traditionally reserved for someone who gives millions. We call it citizen philanthropy.

As a ShopAnthropist you can double down on citizen philanthropy! Catch our great
back to school special offers, do your school supply shopping online and earmark the retailers' corporate gifting percentage for Donors Choose.

Thank you!
