DigitalWish.org, a public charity on a mission to modernize American schools, makes getting SMART products into schools easier than ever with educational pricing.
Manchester, VT, February 19, 2009 - Getting SMART products into schools is now even more affordable on digitalwish.org. Digital Wish not only offers educational pricing on all SMART products listed on the site, but the organization also automatically matches each purchase by giving 2% - 10% back to teachers every time they place an order. For example, if a donor purchases a SMART Board 680 with Unifi 45 Projector for a teacher, that teacher would automatically receive $66 back in his or her shopping cart to apply to a future purchase. In addition, Digital Wish demands no fee, ensuring that 100% of every donation will benefit classroom teachers and their students.
"Educational pricing is key," said Heather Chirtea, Digital Wish's Founder. "Now donors can purchase SMART products for schools at the reduced, educational price, which makes donor contributions go further, and brings teachers one step closer to modernizing their classrooms. Purchases and monetary contributions are also tax deductible, making Digital Wish a great resource for potential donors."
How it works: Donors and teachers can register for free on digitalwish.org. Teachers set up "wish lists" for the SMART products and other classroom technology they need, and donors can give cash donations or purchase items directly from a teacher's wish list. Using Digital Wish's Class Locator, donors can find teachers or schools anywhere in the United States. After receiving a cash donation, teachers "go shopping" for the technology they need, and Digital Wish donates 2% - 10% of every order back into their shopping cart.
About Digital Wish
As a public charity, Digital Wish is on a mission to modernize American classrooms and prepare students for tomorrow's workforce. Educators build technology wish lists and describe how each resource will be utilized. Their classroom's story is then posted online, for review by any donor. Teachers write project plans or browse a free lesson plan library to find project ideas written by educators, outlining best practices in technology. Digital Wish works with many institutions to set up cost-free grant programs for schools, and then matches every donation with an additional 2%-10% in funding. Visit www.digitalwish.org.
