Watch a Video & Then Enter to Win a Gift Card

Longtime readers of this site know that I’m a big proponent of DonorsChoose.  During my years as a classroom teacher I had over 65 proposals funded on DonorsChoose thanks to the generosity of citizen philanthropists and corporations who chose to fund my proposals I wrote for classroom supplies, books, writer’s notebooks, field trips, and special programs.

Speaking of corporations, Intel will make a $25,000 donation to DonorsChoose to help fund technology-related classroom projects if 200,000 people watch a video they posted on Amazon.com by Wednesday, September 14th*.  You can click here to watch the video.  In addition, Intel is graciously donating a $100 gift card to one reader of this blog post. The winner of the gift card may either fund one of their own classroom projects or another teacher’s project with the $100.

Here’s what you have to do to get entered in this giveaway:

1)  Watch the video.

2)  Leave a comment about the video or about your past use of DonorsChoose in the comments section of this post by Wednesday, September 14th at 12:00 p.m. EST.  A random drawing will take place after noon on the 14th.  The winner’s name will be announced in a blog post on Thursday, September 15th.

Please be sure to leave a valid e-mail address when you post your comment so I can contact you to obtain your mailing address.  Then, my contact who represents Intel will mail the gift card to you.  Please note: your e-mail address will not be published online.

*= The video says that 200,000 people must watch it by August 31st.  I’ve been told the deadline to watch the video is now September 14th.
