+Wil Wheaton

Mr. Wheaton,  

     I normally would not do something like this, but I am trying to raise awareness (and money) for a fundraiser that will benefit the children in my classroom.  I have attempted to do so through social media, but my "footprint" is so small that it has proven difficult to reach a sufficient amount of people.  I am hoping that you can help me with this.

     I teach in a high poverty school, and my children basically have no interaction with computers outside of school.  Google, in conjunction with donorschoose.org, is offering Samsung Chromebook 5s for $99 to classroom teachers.  I have requested 20 laptops, which I will share with the other third grade classroom.  We have 36 of the best kids around, and they really do deserve better than what they have.  I hope that this can help to give it to them.

     I am hoping that you will be able to help me spread the good word.  You have the ability to reach a much, much larger population that I can, should you choose.  As I said, I normally would not ask someone for help in such a way, but I do feel that the cause is important enough.  My website is http://www.donorschoose.org/anthony.caldwell.  During the next few days, anyone that donates can have their donation matched by typing in the code word "inspire."  

     I specifically chose you due to your commitment to charity and interest in technology.  I don't know you, but you seem to be a caring and genuine person.  If you have read this, then thank you very much for your time.  Sorry that I wrote so much.

Sincerely,

Anthony Caldwell

My wife has set up a Thunderclap account for my donorschoose.org efforts, and we need 99 more people to get on there and help us reach our goal.  There is no money involved in this part, and we're just trying to reach as many people as possible.  If you could help get the word out, I would greatly appreciate it!

This is the picture that the third grade made in order to support our donorschoose.org campaign to get 20 Chromebooks.  It's impossible to tell, but they are all giving a "thumbs up."

Google is teaming up with a website called www.donorschoose.org to offer a unique opportunity. Classroom teachers can request up to 30 Chromebooks for $99 each. I've requested 20 laptops, now all I need are donors. If you could share the page http://www.donorschoose.org/anthony.caldwell, you may be able to help the third grade in a huge way.

It's after 1:00 in the morning, and I'm jack-assing around on here, basically doing nothing. Good to know that I don't have the sense to go to bed when I'm tired.
