Solid science education is the best inoculation against ignorance.
Project: We Like to Build It, Build It!
|Going forward, we hope to feature a mix of larger and our usual smaller projects. Last week, we featured a project that Square Knot brought to our attention: A high school class in Mesa, Arizona needs supplies to restore a one acre lot on campus into a Sonoran desert ecosystem. Since DonorsChoose has something similar to a "rec list", every time we create a flurry of activity on a project, even if the dollar amounts involved aren't large, we can push the project up that list so it gets shown to more donors outside Daily Kos.|
When the main project is finished, let's continue working on this one.
Project: Desert Outdoor Research Field
See our list of successfully funded projects. We're up to 401!
When projects are not fully funded by their expiration date, donors are contacted by DonorsChoose and asked to choose another project to which to redirect their donations. Occasionally, a fully funded project is called off for some reason internal to the school/teacher, and funding is returned. We have no way of knowing why, but DonorsChoose handles those donations in the same way as for expired projects.
