From time-to-time, we like to do pro-bono projects here at Gisteo. This animated explainer video for DonorsChoose.org is one such example. We think DonorsChoose is a great cause and it was a pleasure to briefly explain how the platform works in this fun little animation.
DonorsChoose.org enables teachers to request materials and resources for their classrooms and makes these project requests available to individual donors through its website. Donors can give $1 or more to projects that interest them, which are searchable by school name, teacher name, location, school subject, material, and keywords. DonorsChoose.org then purchases necessary supplies and ships them directly to the schools. Every project contains a line-item budget and a description of the project. All donors receive photographs of the project taking place in the classroom and a letter from the teacher. Donors who contribute $50 or more to a project also receive hand-written thank-you notes from students.
