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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
