Hey, if you're looking for a direct way to help out kids at school, here's a way to do it:
DonorsChoose Bay Area is a match.com of sorts for public schools and people who care about public education.
Whether you have $10 or $2,000 to give, you get to choose exactly how
you will spend your donation.
And it's easy. You can do your giving online–at www.donorschoose.org,
you can read about different student projects and choose one to support. Later, you get really touching student thank-you notes and photos–I know, I've seen them.
This month, Jerry Yang and Yahoo!, Inc. are giving $50,000 to DOUBLE
YOUR DOLLARS on any Bay Area project up to $700. It's like a big sale
on helping kids.
