>Help some kids get into reading!

>Hey folks! Wanna donate to a school-related semi-local project?

Six Apart (the company that owns LJ) is donating $30 gift certificates to anyone who emails them for one to give to the project of your choice at DonorsChoose.org – and I found one that was very modest. $250, for 25 copies of the first book in the “The Series of Unfortunate Events books, by Lemony Snicket” series. It’s for a Snellville, GA elementary school, third grade class.

The LJ certificates are free, and the info can be found here:

The project I’d like to support is here:

I think it would be cool if some of my readers could pitch in to help these kids get some books. It’s not much, and wouldn’t take long. Even if you miss the window on the freebie certificates, a few bucks of your own could really make a difference!

Deadline for the freebies is 5 p.m. PT on Monday, October 1, 2007. We’d only need 8 or 9 people (8.3, to be exact) to donate these certificates to fund this class prohect… And I’m donating mine!
