Whew. That was a heckuva ride! In four weeks, we managed to raise over $2500 for the DonorsChoose Challenge - and stay ahead of Mac|Life all week! That's 72 teacher projects completed and 3,664 students reached! Nice job!
We're really proud of what we've been able to accomplish (and contribute) to this cause - and we couldn't have done it without you. In the spirit of giving back, we lined up six prize packages for Donorschoose Week 4, here's a run down of the final week's prizes and winners:
In one week, we were able to raise $612 to help complete projects from our DonorsChoose Giving Page! Thanks to 22 of you generous souls not ony were we able to reach over 1,200 students but we also beat Mac|Life handily. Check out the side by side comparisson:
Let's be real: an education is important. Which is why this year we're participating in the 10th Annual DonorsChoose Challenge to help teachers get the materials they need in their classrooms. Our sister publication, Mac|Life, raised over $4000 last year and this year we think we can beat them - after all, you spent waaaay less money on your PC, so you've got a bit more to give, right? And if that's not enough of a reason - prizes! Every Monday we'll hold a contest for a shiny new prize. To enter, donate to one of the projects on our Giving Page, then forward your email receipt to me at amber at maximumpc.com. I'll send you back a thank-you and enter you into that week's drawing.
This week: Android Collectibles! They've been sold out for a while now, but we just found a secret stash of the critters in their blind boxes. To enter, give any amount - even if it's just $1 - to a project on our Giving Page and forward me the receipt. The deadline for this weeks (Week 1) prize will be 11:59pm Pacific time on Saturday, October 9, 2010. Got additional questions/comments/requests/wisecracks? See the FAQ below or shoot me an email!
