Ladies and Gentlemen, let’s get to work!
Florida Citizens for Science is launching a fundraising campaign to help teachers and students right here in Florida with science education. Through the great site Donors Choose, FCS has selected five science-related education projects to fund. As the school year kicks off in just a couple of weeks, let’s give these teachers and students the equipment they need to succeed!
We’re going to heavily promote this campaign for 30 days. So, first of all, please drop a few dollars in the bucket. Secondly, spread the word! If you have a website or blog, mention this campaign. Talk about it with your friends, family, co-workers, etc. Submit this as a notice in your local newspaper’s bulletin board. Let everyone know that the money raised stays right here in Florida.
Our initial goal is $1,200. However, you folks only need to come up with half of that. Florida Citizens for Science will match every dollar donated up to $600! So, if you folks contribute $600, then FCS will match it with another $600 for a total of $1,200: our goal! If you folks go over that amount, then great; we’ll fund yet more classroom requests.
Why start today, Aug. 7? Because it’s my birthday! I turn 38 today. So, how about giving me a birthday present by helping fund science education in the Sunshine State! Below is a button for you to click (and the button will also be available in the sidebar). Get busy! Let’s see how many classrooms we can help in the next 30 days. (Note, the status bar on that little graphic below and in the sidebar only changes once a week, I think. So, don’t be surprised if it doesn’t move right after you’ve made your donation.)
