Sorry for breaking out of my cage, but I thought we could all use some good news this morning.
At the end of September, I received a notification from donorschoose.org that a Journalism class needed help to buy a decent digital SLR camera. Donorschoose offered $25 in matching funds, so I donated more in the name of First Draft.
Got this today:
We are honestly completely overwhelmed and excited about the new camera we received last week. in just this short amount of time, I have seen a dramatic increase in the students’ enthusiasm for journalism and the quality of pictures. I know that our October newspaper issue (and all future issues) will be far superior to anything we have created in the past. It only through your generosity that we have been able to achieve this feat and I am able to keep the journalistic spark alive in our high school. Please believe me when I say this is the kindest gift our class has ever received. Thank you again for your donation!
