MetsGrrl’s Make A Difference World Series

This post is actually not about the New York Mets, but I’m hoping you read it anyway.

I’m joining the DonorsChoose.org Blogger Challenge. I don’t know if you’re familiar with DonorsChoose.org, but it’s an organization that facilitates fund raising for teacher-initiated projects in public schools. I personally think that public school teachers are 1) brave and 2) saints, and know how positively my life was impacted by great teachers who tried to make a difference.

The entire fund raiser is facilitated through DonorsChoose.org. This is a small, modest fund raiser, with two projects that are 1) in Brooklyn and 2) involve baseball as a tool to help motivate students, and help them learn and grow.

Think about what you would have spent at Shea during the playoffs on food and beer. Think about what you would have spent on one night at a sports bar, watching the games. If you’re getting a refund from the Mets for playoff tickets, would you miss $20 from it? Then read about what these teachers are trying to do with baseball, and consider making a donation to one or more of the programs.

I’m doing this because I believe in the organization and because I selfishly wanted to do something to make me feel better about not going to the playoffs. Small-minded as it may seem, the end result is all that counts. Even $5 can make a difference.

Mets bloggers, feel free to drop a line if you want to join in this challenge, or go ahead and start your own! The more the merrier.
