I hope that by building MacMost.com I am not just building a web site, but I am also building a community of Mac users and technology enthusiasts. I’d like to see that community help out children in classrooms in the United States. I believe that the use of technology in classrooms helps children learn, grow and become the leaders that we need for the future.
Therefore, I have started personally giving to projects at DonorsChoose.org. This is a web site that lets teachers post their needs, and the community give money to fund them. You can read more about DonorsChoose.org and I hope you agree with me that these are worthwhile projects for the MacMost community to rally behind.
Each week I will pick a project that I feel relates to MacMost in some way. Maybe a classroom needs a new Mac or iPad. Or, maybe they need software, digital cameras or other devices. I will personally give some money to the project and then post it here and in the weekly MacMost newsletter.
I hope that you will join me in donating a small amount to the projects I choose. This way we can come to the aid of a classroom as a community. Or, you can browse the different projects and pick on that inspires you. Either way, please tell others about your donation. Telling others will hopefully inspire them to give as well. I would love it if eventually the MacMost community could fully fund a project each week!
A school in Los Angeles, California is looking to buy an iPad to help teach kids to read.
“It is very important that our project get funded in order for me to be able to provide my pre-K and Transitional Kinder reading level students with kinesthetic, auditory, and visual opportunities needed to become literate. With your generous support my students will not only learn essential pre-K and Transitional Kinder reading skills, but will also learn how to use technology.”
Join MacMost in supporting this project.
