Please Help Support My Donors Choose Project – “Give Students High Interest Books and They Will Read!”

Hi Friends,

As you may know, I’m a high school English teacher in Bloomington, IL, and I want to make sure my students have the materials they need to succeed. So I’ve created a classroom project request at, an award-winning charity.

I’m asking for donations of any size to help my kids.  If you give by August 21, any donation you make to my project will be doubled (up to $100). 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.

Here’s my classroom request.  Simply click on it:
Give Students High Interest Books and They Will Read!

To have your donation matched dollar for dollar, enter the match code INSPIRE on the payment screen. This awesome match offer lasts through August 21, 2013.

My students and I greatly appreciate your support.  A good book can change a student’s life forever.  Please help me put such a book in my students’ hands.


Support An A-T Marathoner For The Chicago Marathon

The following comes from my brother-in-law, Chad Schultz:

Friends and Family,

Join me in supporting the A-T Children’s Project by sponsoring me in my marathon efforts. I am raising money for a cure or life-improving therapies for a rare genetic disease called ataxia-telangiectasia, or A-T for short. Visit my fundraising page, and please pass it on to your friends! Either click on the link below, or copy and paste the link into your web browser.

Well, it’s that time of year. The Chicago Marathon is just over a month away, and I am running it for the A-T Children’s Project in honor of Alyssa Wood (Stepanie’s cousin). I have set my goal a bit higher this year, hoping to raise at least $2,500. All donations are tax deductible as the A-T Children’s Project is a 501(C)(3) charity.

I know that many people are being stretched to the limit with expenses due to high gas and food prices, new home purchases, and starting families; so I am going to donate the first 10% towards my goal. Please visit my webpage and give what you feel you can. Any contribution is greatly appreciated, but if you are not able to donate at all this year, I still encourage you to visit my page to learn more about A-T and see pictures of me, Alyssa, Stephanie, and others. The deadline for all donations is September 26, 2008.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

*For those who prefer not to donate online, there is a link on my page for a printable donor form that can be mailed. I will be happy to collect checks to mail for anyone in the Chicagoland area.
