One of my favorite memories of teaching in DC Public Schools was the day that my art supplies arrived, funded through a Donor’s Choose project. For our class, receiving the supplies wasn’t just exciting because it meant we now had a ‘Creation Station’ in our room; it was more exciting to know that someone out there cared enough about our classroom to give us this gift – a gift that wasn’t about studying, or testing, or homework – but instead given to us simply because someone wanted us to paint! For the rest of the week, everyone walked a little taller, smiled a little brighter – and spent every spare moment finding excuses to sketch, draw and otherwise express ourselves with color.
For the past few weeks at Kno, we’ve experienced this excitement vicariously through classrooms all over the US whose projects were funded by the Kno for Good initiative that we launched in November. From tablets, to art supplies, to music programs, to field trips, by purchasing textbooks on Kno you’ve brought immeasurable happiness and incredible learning opportunities to students and teachers. And that’s Good.
Today – we’re proud to say that over 100,000 students and almost 1,200 teachers have been impacted by Kno for Good. On behalf of our team, thank you for your support of Kno for Good, and your on-going support of Donor’s Choose.
