A few weeks ago, our New York office got a special visit from Team USA Soccer star, Landon Donovan. Although he’s been very busy training for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, he still took the time to answer all of our staff’s questions. He shared with us where his passion for education comes from (his mom) and why he started playing soccer in the first place (an alternative to biting other kids). He also updated our chalk wall with his stellar autograph!To celebrate the World Cup, Landon has created a giving page where you can donate to some of his favorite projects.Landon told us that he’s been a “fan [of DonorsChoose.org] since Day 1” so we are particularly excited to announce that he will be joining our National Advisory Council. A list of all National Advisory Council members can be viewed here.
