I want to thank everyone who contributed to the Donors Choose science blogger challenge. Because of you all -- 90 people who donated in total coming from this blog and my other outlets like Twitter and Google+ -- we raised $5,887, and 2,480 students will see new science materials in their clasrooms! Wow. Think about that. Nearly 2500 students, positively affected by strangers who simply want more science taught in school. Some of the donations were for a little bit, and some for a lot, but they all added up to a huge effect on those kids' lives. So thank you to every who participated, and know that you have been a great help. And for those of you who donated in the last couple of days, I've been told the matching donation email has been sent. Check your inbox, and in just a minute of your time you can double your impact. Y'all are great. Thanks again.
