Movie stars, tech founders, and athletes formed a fundraising flash mob that paid for 12,000 different school projects and requests in cities across the United States.
Funny man, Stephen Colbert helped organize the nationwide support for teachers after personally funding every school project in his home state of South Carolina last year, using his favorite charity, DonorsChoose.org.
He and the charity created the new campaign called “Best School Day” to be a single day surge of giving during which celebrities could use their fame and wealth to help schools across the country.
The website DonorsChoose.org, which lets the public personally donate to school projects that interest them, collected $14 million dollars that day as 58 actors, athletes, and entrepreneurs joined the cause for education.
This is great!
