I recently heard about a special program that Disney is doing called Disney Planet Challenge. Since I teach Science, I thought it would be fun to enter the contest and see what happens.
Well, then Disney sent out a message on Facebook that they will fund the first 100 projects that sign up through DonorsChoose.org. I signed up this weekend and woke up at 5 am to be one of the first 100 teachers to register. Then, I prayed. I prayed that God would bless these kids. He gives them Beauty for Ashes.
At about 11:00 I received word that Disney would fully fund our project! Hallelujah! To Him goes the glory. Click on our site to see what we are up to: http://www.donorschoose.org/rodriguez
***I received word the other day that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation want to donate $100 to my classroom project. But since Disney has the paid the bill, I should make a new project. I'm thinking Math this time. Any suggestions?
