New! Digital Wish 43 Grant Opportunities Program
"Hi There!
Just a quick note to let you know we've launched a grants/fundraising initiative for technology at Teachers who register and submit a lesson plan to Digital Wish, will automatically qualify for 43 new grant opportunities. We've posted a searchable library of lesson plans, loads of fundraising ideas, a grants database, a technology "Wish List", and a school locator. Your local school is probably already in the system!

Please register your school, tell your story, and make your technology wishes public on Next month we'll be adding an online donation feature to Digital Wish that will allow anyone to make a donation to your classroom's cart, or purchase items off your wish list (like a wedding registry).

Feel free to send feedback on the site, and thanks for participating. You are welcome to let your staff know about Digital Wish."

All the best,
