Review for Drop in The Bucket, Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization does amazing, life saving work bringing water to areas of need in sub-Saharan Africa. Having clean water and improved sanitation allows many girls to return to school and get an education. As a believer in the Girl Effect, I'm a big fan of this organization.

Review for DONORSCHOOSE INC, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I teach in a new, small rural school and state budget cuts have decimated us. With no major industry in the area, there is little local funding available to assist instruction. DonorsChoose has been a lifesaver for my school and classroom. As I look around my classroom, I see novel sets, cameras, art materials and even an iMac computer, all funded through DonorsChoose. While many of my students live in poverty, their opportunities in school are rich thanks to this organization. I cannot praise it highly enough.

I love Donors Choose! As a teacher in a rural, poverty-stricken area, I've depended on DonorsChoose to bring my students the educational opportunities they deserve. It's always hard to find time for grant-writing, but DonorsChoose makes it user friendly. Submit the project, then, when it's funded, the materials are automatically sent. DC has not only helped us get basics such as books, but also the really "cool" stuff such as a computer, cameras, and clay for making claymation videos. I understand some of the negative comments about the "donation" that DC adds into each project. If you object, you can opt out of that donation without lessening the chances of the project being funded. As I understand it, that money helps cover rising materials costs (it can take 5 months to fund a project and prices do rise), and not just administrative expenses. My classroom would be a bleaker place without DonorsChoose!
