We featured Donors Choose back in 2009 but wanted to shine some light to this charity again. In the previous post, we mentioned micro-lending via Vittana. Donors Choose works along the same lines in regards to lending for education. In this case however, it's not a loan but there are promises of thank you notes and pictures from the students you help. You can donate as little as $1 and pick from a variety of projects based on your interests.
For a great source of information on Donors Choose (aside from the official website and our blog of course :D ) by a blogger currently going through this process, check out 'The Professor in Training' below. According to the future professor, HP will match your contribution so there's no excuse not to donate!
