Check out MPMK's latest: Memory Keeping: Free Family Tree Template

http://goo.gl/yjIpNF

I've got something great to share with you guys today. In an effort to continue to fill our photography & memory making section with do-able ideas for busy parents, I've persuaded Genevieve Michnik from the Tiny Prints Blog share with us a really lovely family tree project.

You can do this one on your own or with the kids and there's even a free printable template to make sure you can't mess it up. That's my kind of project!

Here's Genevieve...
Teaching kids about their heritage is a great idea during the family-centric holiday season, and making it a hands-on activity only takes a few simple supplies.

With this easy project, you can get everyone involved at your next holiday gathering, or create a family tree to put on display for aunts, uncles and grandparents to see when they visit. Family trees also make great gifts!

Just download the free printable template, print a few family photos and gather some supplies from your local craft store to be all set to make your own.

GOOGLE FULLY FUNDS ALL SEATTLE TEACHERS' CLASSROOM REQUESTS ON DONORSCHOOSE.ORG

Something SO amazing happened in my neck of the woods this morning!

SEATTLE – Sept. 15, 2014 - Mayor Ed Murray announced today that Google has fully funded the classroom requests of every teacher in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties on the education crowdfunding site DonorsChoose.org. As a result of Google’s $338,000 donation, 295 teachers will receive materials for over 36,000 students – ranging from paper, pencils, and books to laptops, musical instruments, and microscopes.

“There’s no better way to start off the school year than with this surprise funding for our local teachers. This generous donation to our classrooms is greatly appreciated,” said Mayor Murray, who made the surprise announcement in front of teachers at Highland Park Elementary School.

On DonorsChoose.org, teachers post projects requesting materials they need for their classrooms, and donors support the projects that inspire them. Among the projects funded this morning were laptops and a tablet for kindergarten students at Highland Park Elementary, a new set of ukuleles for Springbrook Elementary School in Kent and mapmaking materials for Lowell Elementary in Everett.

“We know how important it is for teachers to have the right tools for their work,” said Darcy Nothnagle, public affairs and government relations manager of Google’s Western Region. “We hope that by funding these requests, teachers in our area can create the best opportunities for their students.”

“We are so humbled and grateful to Google for their devotion to our teachers and students,” said Charles Best, founder and CEO of DonorsChoose.org. “This is a great day for the Seattle area classrooms.”

On Monday morning, 388 projects were funded in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties. Google posted a message on every funded project, letting teachers know they were part of the surprise.

Over the past few months, Google has announced similar “flash funding” campaigns in San Francisco, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington, D.C., Austin, Kansas City, and Los Angeles.

In addition to their project funding initiatives, Google has also supported several DonorsChoose.org programs over the years, including a $5 Million AP STEM Access program, which launched over 500 new AP STEM courses at high poverty schools nationwide.

About DonorsChoose.org

Founded in 2000, DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a classroom in need. At this nonprofit website, teachers at half of all the public schools in America have created project requests, and more than a million people have donated $260 million to projects that inspire them. All told, 12 million students—most from low-income communities, and many in disaster-stricken areas—have received books, art supplies, field trips, technology, and other resources that they need to learn.

Amazing.  Does Google normally donate through this website?
