As we move into the month of December, signs of the holiday season are everywhere: street vendors offering freshly roasted chestnuts, stores showing off their holiday window displays, and trees glittering with white lights. Here at DonorsChoose.org, the most evident indication of the season is the increase of holiday themed project requests.This year we thought we would honor the holidays with a series of project spotlights. We selected 12 holiday based projects to highlight on our blog. We call it “12 Days of Donating.” Teachers have posted projects requesting books, craft supplies, and musical instruments to be used in a festive fashion. We hope that our “12 Days of Donating” will help these teachers achieve their goal of bringing a little winter cheer to their classrooms – after all, ‘tis the season!
