For those of you who have been interested in the DonorsChoose.org Bloggers challenge and the participation by ScienceBlogs'ters and the DrugMonkey Blog Readers in particular, there is a new way to help.
DonorsChoose.org is in the running for a big prize from American Express and if you are a cardholder they would appreciate your vote.
from the DonorsChoose.org folks:
The contest ends at midnight EST on Monday, so we've got less than 48 hours left to go. 1st place comes with $1.5 million, and 2nd place comes with $500,000--all of which would go to classroom projects on our site. In this economy, winning those funds could be critical for the students and teachers we serve.
An inspiration from a Members Project participant.
If you are a cardholder, please go and register your vote for the children helped by DonorsChoose.
As an update, fan-freakin-tastic job DrugMonkey Blog Readers! You've kept us near the top of the Sb leaderboard in terms of the number of donors and for that I continue to be really touched. Thank you all for your generosity. It is not so important that you give a lot of money. We get hundreds of visits each day and our reliable commentariat runs to the several dozens. If everyone gives but $10 we can make a huge difference.
