Best School Day


On March 28th, Ripple (technology company) made headlines with the largest single donation in the history of DonorsChoose.org.  This New York company generously donated $29 million dollars to the nonprofit’s website, fully funding every request listed. With this donation, 35,647 public school teachers across the US are now receiving books, supplies, technology, field trips, and other resources for their classrooms.  As a special education teacher at River Grove School, this donation made an impact on my students and me personally. Through this donation, my students will be receiving the furniture needed to create a reading nook in our classroom. This includes a comfy couch they can read on and many wonderful class sets of popular novels including “Wonder” and “A Wrinkle in Time.”  Through this website we have also been gifted a rug for our book nook, comfy pillows to go with it, finger lights to keep reading fun, and reading trackers to help the kids keep place while reading. We can’t thank Donors Choose and Ripple enough for making such a positive impact in our classroom.
