Update on the Donors Choose Challenge!

Standard

The Donors Choose Challenge is now over, and the project to get more nature bloggers involved was a success!!

The total amount given for the Nature Blogs Group was $5,170.  That put our group at #11–not quite in the top 10, but still pretty darn good!  That also is quite a bit more than I managed by myself last year ($270).  YAY! And THANK YOU!

Overall, the total amount given this year was $637,336. That’s amazing! I was very excited to see that one of the top groups was Making a difference for Michigan Children.  Teachers are being laid off left and right here, so making sure our remaining teachers are supported and have the tools they need is very important.

9 of the 12 projects I chose were fully funded–that’s a lot of new buggy and gardening stuff in the hands of kids. Still need an end of year tax deduction? You can still give!!

MUCH LOVE TO ALL OF YOU THAT DONATED!!!

  1. Great job BG! It was great to be a part such a wonderful initiative. Hopefully we can get more nature bloggers to participate next year and make it even bigger. We are keeping our widget up year round and plan to periodically poke readers to donate.
