    Guess what? My project on donorschoose.org is now fully funded! I got the email today and am sooooo excited! I wonder how long it takes for everything to get to me? Our new clubs start in two weeks. If I have everything, I can start mine right away!!! And Ann Taylor was one of the funders! Woot so excited! I tried to share the news with my dh, but he just gave me this look like, "Really? Can I get back to my game now?"

    Yup, it works! :D :D Woot! And thank you all! :D

    I think everyone should try this site, if you have a project that you are trying to implement! :D What is the worst that people can say...no? Pish, "no" doesn't phase me anymore, not when I'm trying to get things for my kiddos. :p

    Yes, it is! :D It's definitely worth it to try. My club was too much money, but I really wanted to try it. I think it's going to be a success, and the kids won't even know they're actually learning!

    I'm not surprised you got the funding-- that was a well written proprosal!!!

    You incorporated everything from everyone's favorite game to Winston Churchil to statistics on literacy. You were concrete and to the point.

    I would fund you if I had any money :)

    Congratulations on a job well done!!!

    Congrats :) I am hoping that my current request gets funded. I would absolutely love it if my Elmo got funded (it would make things so much easier with the copying restrictions we have now). Keep your fingers crossed corps that I will be celebrating soon. :)

    corps,

    It's 196569. I had one funded last year for literature for my classroom library since the teacher that I got the room from has cleaned it out completely (only left old construction paper) and I didn't have a lot of upper level reading. That proposal was for more than this one and I am just hoping that this one will make it before the end of the year.
