Six Apart (the company that runs the blogging platform Movable Type) is giving out free certificates to make $30 donations to any public school classroom project on the donorschoose.org web site. You can help a school pay for copies of Dorothy West’s The Wedding, art supplies for special-needs kids, a trip to Washington, D.C. to watch our government inaction in action, and so on. Email donorschoose@sixapart.com by noon today (I assume they mean PST, so 3:00 for us east coasters) and they will send you a code within 48 hours.

Go here to learn more about this (and to see that it’s not a hoax).

Since I am not really interested in others except insofar as they affect me, I waffled on this one, but in the end I decided that helping people for free would make me feel good about myself.
