Pretty Awesome Way To Spend a Thursday!
Comedian Stephen Colbert announced last week on Thursday that he would fund every existing grant request for South Carolina public school teachers. This was made possible by education crowdfunding website DonorsChoose.org.
Colbert made the announcement on a live video feed at a surprise event at Alexander Elementary School in Greenville.
Colbert partnered with Share Fair Nation and ScanSource to fund nearly 1,000 projects for more than 800 teachers at over 375 schools, totaling $800,000. (dailyskos.com)
