As a reaction to feeling so divided we created $5 Fridays on Facebook as a small way to come together and make a difference. We hope you will join us because we are stronger together! Each Friday we will pick a local teacher’s submission on DonorsChoose.org for an educational project, and try to fund it with as many donations of $5 as possible. Often these teachers’ requests are about to expire and have received little to no money – we try to turn that around.
Please join our group and share it! Help us spread the word! Set up a reminder for $5 Fridays on your phone to check this group every Friday morning. The point here is quantity of donors, not amount individuals donate. Joining this Group is you making a commitment to donate the price of a fancy coffee to one local classroom per week. That’s it. “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.” -Helen Keller
Love this concept? We owe the idea to the original $5 Fridays national group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fivedollarfridays/
