   SESUG Charity Events to Benefit Donors Choose

SESUG 2011 continues the tradition of holding fundraising activities to benefit Donors Choose, Inc.  Donors Choose (www.donorschoose.org) is a unique educational charity that provides a way to donate to specific projects in public schools.  As we have done for the past several years, projects in the area of the country near the conference will be selected for funding.

SESUG will be providing two opportunities for attendees to participate in this rewarding activity:

  • Koffee For Kids
    SESUG will provide coffee all day at a special Koffee For Kids kiosk.  Please consider throwing a dollar or two into the jar at that kiosk.  It is totally voluntary, but keep in mind that 100% of your donation will go to Donors Choose.
  • Raffle Opportunity
    SESUG will be conducting a raffle on a limited number of specially selected items.  Each item will have its own raffle bin, so you can select the items you are most interested in winning.  Tickets will be available at the registration desk – and the more tickets you buy, the greater your chances of winning your favorite item!!

As we get closer to the conference, we will provide more details about these activities. In the meantime, please visit the website for Donors Choose and learn about how they are helping make America’s schools a better place, one classroom at a time.
