FYI - Americans, Take Action for Education!Friday, October 01, 2010
I received a request this afternoon to help mobilize Americans to take action in support of education. The result will be $1,000,000 to benefit Donor’s Choose, a non-profit helping fund in-classroom projects throughout the country.
In partnership with NBCs Education Nation, American Express has issued a challenge asking for 100,000 Americans to pledge to take action for education. If they get 100,000 pledges by the end of today (Friday, October 1st) they will donate $1 million to Donor’s Choose-- that’s $10 per pledge. Pledging only takes a minute. You can find the pledge on Facebook here: http://apps.facebook.com/educationchallenge.
