Welcome home everyone! Join us this week as we play the “what’s your favorite?” game. Make sure to let us know what your favorites are and if you have any in common with us.
Dog of the Week
“This is Chula! We got her from Paige’s family when they were moving to Oregon and couldn’t take her with them. She’s more cat than dog. She plays with her food before eating it and doesn’t like cheese. She follows me EVERYWHERE and hates rides in the car. She loves Nilla Wafers, peanuts, and meatloaf. The had originally named her Bandit, but she didn’t look like a Bandit to us, so we chose Chula, which means “cute” in Spanish. Oh, and she’ll steal your food right off of your plate if you don’t watch her. She’s an absolute pain in the neck, but we adore her! If she had a Tinder profile, this would be her picture.” – Chula’s mom, Tatia
Charity of the Week:
“Founded in 2000 by a high school teacher in the Bronx, DonorsChoose empowers public school teachers from across the country to request much-needed materials and experiences for their students. Right now there are thousands of classroom requests that you can help bring to life with a gift of any amount.
We make it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need, moving us closer to a nation where students in every community have the tools and experiences they need for a great education.
Our team has vetted and fulfilled over 1.3 million classroom project requests that range from butterfly cocoons, to robotics kits, to Little House on the Prairie. Many of us are former teachers, so our operation feels like a cross between a startup and a schoolhouse. Stop by our offices in New York or San Francisco and you’ll find us working hard, digging into our data, sharing our favorite classroom projects, and Instagramming the happiest thank you notes from students.” – DonorsChoose
