January 13, 2009 – Thanks!

Last October, I made some contributions to DonorsChoose as part of the Tomato Nation campaign.  In honor of my own debate experience, I fully funded a podium for a middle school classroom.  Today, I got my thank you package which included pictures, individual thank you cards from each student and a letter from the teacher.  She said that the students could not believe that someone would do something for them without expecting anything in return.  They’ve been inspired to raise money so that they can fund another school’s project — and they think I didn’t get something in return.

  1. How generous of you to donate the podium and to consider the reward their thank yous and desire to pay it forward. The kids are right — you rock!!

  2. I agree. Thanks for being the solution.

  3. This is just so awesome!
