Matthew Badger has created a fund to support art education and integration in America. His fund, Lily Sarah Grace Fund, has a giving page set up on DonorsChoose. As of this writing, $2,165 have been donated. I know we are all teachers, and we all face tight budgets, but even $10 would make a difference to a classroom in need, and it would honor the memories of these three beautiful little girls. Click on the picture below to choose a classroom to donate to. As a bonus, there are several matching codes available. You can double your donation by using any of the following codes: CHASE, UPVOTE, FINSLIPPY, BREADPIG, or SHOUT.
This is the project I donated to. I recognized several of my friends' projects on the giving page, but I decided to pick a project from a teacher who had never before been funded. Express Yourself!!
Matthew Badger has created a video for each of his daughters. They are wonderful and truly capture the essence of each girl. I encourage you to watch them, but have a box of tissues nearby. You will need them. Here is Lily's video. The other videos are available on the giving page.
