Last week, I wrote about my experience with DonorsChoose and their thank-you packages. I got a very nice comment from Mike Everett-Lane explaining some of the inner workings at DC. Yesterday I got two more emails of thanks which included links to six more worthy projects, which I thought I’d share here.

Dear David,

Thank you so much for making “Through the eyes of a child…” a reality for Ms. Thompson’s classroom. By now, you should have received your thank-you package in the mail. If you have not received it, please email zach[at] We welcome any questions or suggestions.

We hope the feedback illustrates the difference you’ve made for Ms. Thompson’s students. In case you’d like to help another classroom, we’ve selected some projects for you that are similar:

Proposals from Suffolk, Massachusetts

Proposals involving Visual Arts

Alternatively, you can see proposals that need less than $200 to come to life.

Thank you again for your generosity.

Sincerely, Team

Putting on the marketeer hat for a bit, I have to admire the clever customized upsell. Nice work. And remember, you can save everybody some work if you cap your gifts at $99 each. But please make as many gifts as you can.
