Hi everyone,

Hoping that everyone will help out a Streator schoolteacher who is trying to get critical math supplies for her classroom using a very novel technique.

Ms. Spierling from Sherman Elementary School on East Elm has created a project at DonorsChoose.org , a well-respected, non-profit organization that lets people from around the country support students, teachers and schools by making individual donations. Donations can be as small as $1.

All you have to do is go to DonorsChoose.org , click on "Projects," then find the "search" box on the right hand side of the screen. Enter "streator."

The Sherman Elementary project is called "Learning is a Pair-A-Dice." Get it - pair-a-dice, paradise. Hah!

You can donate as little as $1 or as much as you want. If you donate $100, the students in the classroom will send you handwritten "thank you" cards.

Even better, currently, you can boost your donation by $15 at no additional cost to you. It's part of a promotion for the documentary film, "Waiting for Superman." Text the word "possible" to 77177.(There's no charge.) When they respond, just text your zip code. They will send you a gift code. Enter that as you check out DonorsChoose.org and your donation will be increased by $15. That's free money to help a local school.

(Secret: if you can't spare any money yourself, you can still do the above, get the gift code and donate $15 and it will cost you nothing. However, only do this one time per account or DonorsChoose will catch on and put the kibosh on it.)

Hope everyone who reads this can spare a few minutes to donate $1,$5,$10 or more towards this Streator schoolteacher's worthy goal. And don't forget to get the free $15 gift code while it lasts.

Thanks, CPW
