With the arrival of a certain book (selling like hotcakes on Amazon!), Sean has generously sent out thank you gifts to all deserving participants of the DonorsChoose challenge. The final tally was 36 donors contributing $12,125, reaching a total of 3,112 students across the nation. These are incredible numbers! We can all feel proud that we have had a tangible impact on so many lives. And who knows, maybe one of the kids we have reached will now be inspired to become the next Einstein?

As promised, we're doling out loot. 13 people gave over $100, and 4 gave over $500 (with 2 giving over $1k each!). Here is the list of recipients: >$100: copy of Sean's book Raymundo in College Station, TX James in New York, NY Pete in St. Paul, MN Paul in Dearborn, MI >$500: copy of Sean's lectures Kitty's Coffee in Cincinnati, OH Sili in Odense, Denmark There are many people that "qualified", but haven't sent me their addresses (of special note were Meghan in Melbourne, FL and Herbert in Bahama, NC, who were especially generous). If you would like to receive a token of our appreciation, please contact me. Thank you again to everyone for participating!
