The other day Stephen Colbert was at New York’s Manhattan Bridges High School in order to interview Charles Best of Donors Choose.org. For those unfamiliar, Donors Choose is “an online organization that allows teachers to request needed funding from individual donors for classroom projects not covered by school budgets.”
Here’s video of me in the Press Section of Stephen Colbert’s DonorsChoose Event:
Here’s how the official video looks:
Little did I know that Donors Choose has their own Youtube Page – Awesome! So I was pleased to learn that the videos are available for your viewing pleasure!
This all came to the attention of The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation‘s announcement of a $4.1 million grant for DonorsChoose.org, a nonprofit organization.
I learned the other day that Colbert is a board member and supporter of DonorsChoose.org – where he mentioned that he had found out about it through Craig Newmark. Basically, the story mentioned that Craig made a donation in the name of his Presidential Campaign.
All in all it was a blast. Enjoy the videos!
