I did a search and did not see anything about this on the forum. I could be wrong but I'll mention it anyway. donorschoose.org This website is awesome. If you're not familiar with it, basically you sign up and you create a project. Donors who want to help education can then get on and choose which projects they want to donate towards. When you get all the money you need the site will ship you whatever you ordered. It's free!! All they ask in return is that you send back thank you letters, pictures, stories, etc for the donors to let them see how their money was used. I have not created my own project yet but I know the art teacher at my school has done several and they have all been funded. She had no art supplies before and she has been able to do painting, sculpture, and all kinds of cool stuff. Check it out! It's too cool to keep a secret.
