Work it, Mom and DonorsChoose GIVEAWAYS!

Today at Work it, Mom! I'm complaining about Columbus Day.

Also, if you haven't noticed, but I joined the DonorsChoose Blogger Challenge. Thanks to the generosity of one reader & a good friend, one class is fully funded. BUT we still have $356 to go to fully fund Mr. B's classroom and their goal of buying books by women authors:

My students need to see 27 examples of women writers who are creating fiction that is captivating and relevant to their lives. I encourage the young women in my class to be leaders, and I am confident that they can help me make reading cool.

I'm not sure that by getting the girls to love reading that the boys will follow, but I do agree that the young women in his class need women authors to discover.

I have the following giveaways for anyone who donates at least $5 thru my donors page by the end of the month:
  • A copy of Ellen Bravo's Taking on the Big Boys
    Why Feminism is Good for Families, Business, and the Nation
  • A copy of Leslie Bennett's The Feminine Mistake
  • A copy of Gloria Feldt's War on Choice: The Right-Wing Attack on Women's Rights and How to Fight Back
  • A University of South Carolina t-shirt from Ann Bartow of Feminist Law Professors
  • And at least one more goodie to come!
Winners will be chosen using random.org and notified as soon I can after Halloween. Check back to this post to see if any new goodies come in from my networks that can be offered.
