It’s back! Starting on Monday, August 22, 2011, Yahoo! Homepages for Homerooms will once again be funding $200,000 in classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org!
Here’s how you can get involved:
Visit Yahoo.HomepagesForHomerooms.com and search for your favorite classroom project (teachers, it could be your own – all active projects are included!).
Follow the simple instructions to make Yahoo! your homepage to gain a vote for your selected project (only one homepage per person will be counted).
Each week from August 22 – October 16, Yahoo! will be funding classroom projects that receive the most votes on their site up to $600 per project – that’s $25,000 each week!
What’s new this year? Extra Credit! You can help even more classrooms this year, by doing your homework. Yahoo! will be sending out creative opportunities to earn extra votes to help your project succeed, so make sure to sign up!
It’s that easy! Start spreading the word to your friends, family, colleagues, neighbors, etc. to support your favorite classroom project with just a few free, easy clicks. With the help of our networks we can bring thousands of dollars to classrooms across the country.
