Donate Your Birthday with DonorsChoose.com

I regularly write about how one of my favorite charities is DonorsChoose.com. The different programs they do to get people excited about giving is what draws me in. Well that and how $50 gets a teacher real close to creating a memorable learning experience for the kids.

I didn’t realize this was an option, but a video of Stephen Colbert mad me aware that you can donate your birthday. Here is an excerpt explaining it:

Great Give-Back Birthday

You are cordially invited to The Great Give-Back Birthday
— our online donation celebration! The party will go year-round, and
we welcome birthday celebrants of all ages. It’s easy to join, here’s
how it works: 1) You donate your birthday to DonorsChoose.org, 2) You
create a personalized Giving Page with classroom projects you care
about, and 3) You share your Giving Page with friends and family. Your
“party guests” can donate to the classroom projects you’ve selected.

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
