Manchester Center, VT- July 7th, 2011- Thanks to the generous support of Espresso Education, Digital Wish has just announced a $600 matching grant on all Espresso Elementary subscriptions purchased by educators through September 30, 2011. Using this limited time grant, educators can get an Espresso Elementary Annual Subscription valued at $1595 for their entire school for just $995.

Espresso Education has been the leading digital curriculum service in the UK for years and has expanded its high quality educational program to America. Appropriate for the PreK-5 classroom, Espresso is a huge library of video clips integrated with interactive activities, games, quizzes, and a weekly News Roundup. Its cross-curricular learning modules cover all subject areas, helping elementary school teachers deliver memorable lessons, engaging students in the learning process.

"Earlier this year, we were thrilled to offer educators a free trial subscription of Espresso Elementary and introduce them to such a high quality program," said Heather Chirtea, founder and executive director of Digital Wish. "We got such a great response that we have introduced this large grant opportunity so that educators can take full advantage of everything Espresso Elementary has to offer."

Lewis Bronze, Espresso CEO commented, "We think Digital Wish is a fantastic organization and a real service to teachers who need extra support to bring technology into their classroom. We are proud to have been selected as a 'wish list' product and really pleased that we can offer a grant that makes Espresso even more affordable. We promise to make a difference in your classroom!"
