ADD Moms, along with thousands of other blogs, is participating today in a fundraising event initiated by BlogCatalog. BlogCatalog has partnered with DonorsChoose.org, a non-profit organization that “provides students in need with resources that public schools lack”.
Here’s a quote from the BlogCatalog site: “Let’s come together on May 28th. and prove that bloggers can do a whole bunch of good and that we aren’t limited to chronic complainers, contrarians or people who just want to hear the sound of their own voice.
Let’s Prove that a LARGE Group of Bloggers Can Come together For a Lot of Good!”
The goal today is $25,000.00. Although schools all over the country will benefit, the primary focus is public schools in New Orleans.
You know, my kids went to public school in a middle to upper class neighborhood. My oldest daughter works in a school located in a very upper class neighborhood; several of the children in her class have fathers who are professional athletes. And yet, both of these districts are under severe budget cuts. I’m told there is no money for new books, and basic supplies like paper. Can you imagine what it’s like in less affluent school districts?
