DonorsChoose.org helps teachers and kids every day!
Both my kids have benefited several times because their teachers wanted to do a cool project or needed school supplies for their classroom so they would list it on DonorsChoose.org. It is exciting to see the donations and what people with when they make their contributions. Parents even use it to donate to because sometimes they just didn’t know how to help. I always send my parents links to the kids teachers requests, and they love they can contribute to their education. I love to be part of an excellent program- it has helped our Oakland Schools a lot!
I want to share that The Clorox Company just made school supply shopping simpler for those in need with a $100,000 donation to DonorsChoose.org, a charity website that helps teachers get the funds they need for various classroom projects and supplies.
Clorox also offers a receipt validation program so people across the country can help schools, just by doing their back-to-school shopping. Shoppers earn rewards by purchasing Clorox®, GLAD® and Hidden Valley® products and can choose to donate the rewards to DonorsChoose.org or redeem for money back via PayPal. We already buy these items why not give back the rewards!
In addition to the DonorsChoose.org partnership, Clorox will host pop-up shops in Chicago and Philadelphia where school supplies and products will be distributed free of charge.
- Clorox partnered with World Vision and Douglas Taylor Elementary to host a pop-up in Chicago on September 7. World Vision U.S. Programs works to create environments where all children and youth are healthy and thriving, cared for and protected, and making a positive contribution to their communities.
- In Philadelphia, Clorox partnered with the Andrew Hamilton School to host a pop-up on Saturday, August 20 in the school gymnasium from10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

Founded in 2000, DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. Teachers at over 71 percent of all the public schools in America have created project requests, and more than 2 million people have donated $439 million to projects that inspire them. Over 18 million students—most from low-income communities, and many in disaster-stricken areas—have received books, art supplies, field trips, technology, and other resources that they need to learn.
