NewsOK: DonorsChoose.org gift cards
Ben Felder emailed me before the Thanksgiving holiday with a video pitch. Felder, Director of Outreach & Communications for the Foundation for Oklahoma City Public Schools, wanted to raise awareness of DonorsChoose.org gift cards. In Felder’s words, the Foundation “partners with DonorsChoose.org and recipients will be able to donate money (depending on how much is on the card) to a local classroom in OKC.”
Solid story. Good gift idea. And don’t we all need a little help in that area? Certainly teachers and students have plenty of needs and this is a great way to select various ways to help.
We spoke with Foundation CEO/President Mary Melon a few weeks ago about another partnership, as Partners In Action was set to launch. This time, the well-spoken Melon was accompanied by Melissa O’Neil, Foundation liaison for DonorsChoose.org.
