Grant Your Local School’s Wish List This Holiday Season

MANCHESTER CENTER, Vt., Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- This holiday season give the gift of technology to teachers in your local school and Digital Wish will match your gift with additional funding.

Here's how it works! Teachers register for free at www.digitalwish.org and create a personalized classroom profile.  They then go shopping and create wish lists of technology items they need for the classroom such as SMART Boards, Dell Netbooks and Flip Video Camcorders and describe how each item will benefit the students and improve the learning experience. 

Individual donors, corporations or fundraising groups can go to Digital Wish and search for classrooms based upon location, interests or by browsing the feature teacher section.  Here you can read about the classroom and its needs and purchase an item for the class or donate a dollar amount to help fundraise for the item.  Once a technology item is purchased, Digital Wish will match additional funding to go back into the classroom's account to purchase other items on their wish list.

Digital Wish also works with national technology partners to grant technology to schools or to offer other matching programs. John Lintner recently took advantage of a matching program and donated 24 Flip Video Camcorders to his children's elementary school for the price of 12. "Through the site I was able to contribute more than double the amount of cameras than my budget would have previously allowed," Lintner said. "I would recommend Digital Wish to other donors for the same reasons why I used the site: it's convenient, easy and you know how your money is going to be spent."

To learn more about Digital Wish and how you can donate to your school visit www.digitalwish.org.  If your school isn't registered or a teacher does not have a wish list, Digital Wish can help you create a personalized donation to the school of your choice.

Digital Wish, a national non-profit working to bring technology into the classroom, is giving the power of the donor to choose exactly which classroom will benefit from their generosity this season.  If you are looking for a creative way to give to your children's classroom or local community Digital Wish never takes any fees off of your donations and will match any technology purchase with an additional 2-10% in funding, making your holiday gift feel larger.
