At the end of August, the Discovery Educator Network will join together for a six week effort encouraging classrooms to collect change to help build homes for Katrina victims. DEN classrooms will have the opportunity to participate in a fundraising activity called Making Change for Katrina. Discovery has teamed up with Habitat for Humanity to raise money for Katrina victims that are still homeless. This is an easy back to school fundraising activity for you and your students to participate in. All you have to do is gather the spare change in your pockets, in your car, and under your sofa and donate it to Making Change for Katrina. More details about this project can be found on the DEN’s Making Change for Katrina wiki—http://mcfk.editme.com
Also, on Sunday, August 27, 2006 at 9:00PM the Discovery Channel will premiere “Surviving Katrina” a two-hour special with survivors sharing their experiences of this natural disaster.
We, as DEN members, can pull together and make a difference in someones life. If you would like to participate please check out the wiki or e-mail me for more information!
