Here's Mr. Hellman's pitch. Click on the link below for all of the geeky details:
"We're halfway through the school year! I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed. So I've created a classroom project request at DonorsChoose.org, an award-winning charity to replace some aging, failing lab equipment.
I'm asking for donations of any size to help my kids. Now through February 18, any donation you make to my project will be doubled! If you know anyone who is passionate about education, please pass this along. Your donation will brighten my students' school year, and you'll get photos and thank yous from our class.
*To have your donation matched dollar for dollar, enter the match code HEART on the payment screen. This awesome match offer lasts only through February 18.
My students and I greatly appreciate your support. Thanks in advance for your continued generosity."
