Using Donor's Choose to Fund Classroom Projects!

Have you ever used Donor's Choose? It is an amazing resource for teachers
and it is so easy to use!  Maybe you've seen post about it, but never taken the time to check into it.  That was me last summer.  I saw several blog posts about it and finally looked into creating a project of my own.  
I can tell you in 4 easy steps how to do it-
Last summer, I posted my first project.  I wanted full access to the website Speakaboos for my entire school.  It was fully funded by the beginning of the year.  Just yesterday, I posted my second project to purchase 2 iPad Minis for my library. The great thing about Donor's Choose is that the first 7 days, donors can enter the code INSPIRE and their donation will be matched! How awesome is that?!
It really doesn't take long to create a project.  Depending on what your needs are, you can sometimes have certain types of projects funded, in part, by specific companies.  For example, AJ Books funded 50% of my first project!
Check it out, you won't regret it!
If you already have a DC project posted, leave the link in the comments below, I'd love to see your ideas!
