Over on our NorCal sister site, Jason explains this way better than I could. He writes:
“Tim Ferriss… has launched his new site LitLiberation in conjunction with the amazing DonorsChoose charity site with the goal of raising $1M for education in the month of October. They’re calling on bloggers everywhere to use their powers for good and Metblogs has answered the call. Let’s face it, we’re getting our asses kicked by the rest of the world in education and if we don’t do something soon the US is going to be in a world of hurt in the next 10 to 20 years.”
So basically we picked a whole bunch of local charities for a few of our cities so people in those cities who want to throw in can find something that will give back to their community rather than some organization on the other side of the country. There is no minimum so you can donate only a few bucks if you want and it’s 100% tax deductible. It’s kind of cool that some of the Los Angeles charities are only looking for a few hundred bucks to fund an entire program. Check it out.
