In the early days of my work bringing maker education to North State schools, I received a huge boost of support and encouragement from the folks at Maker Education Initiative. That support played a wonderful role in helping me to drive forward here. Maker Ed’s passion and dedication to their mission of creating more opportunities for all young people to develop confidence, creativity, and interest in science, technology, engineering, math, arts and learning as a whole through making continues to support and inspire people like me all over the globe.
We need incredible organizations like this and when we find them, I believe it’s important to not only ask what they can provide us, but also how we can support them. Support comes in many forms, from sending a note of thanks, to sharing messages on social media, to donations.
I’m excited to announce that FDG is donating all of the proceeds from our t-shirt and mug sales to Maker Ed this December, in support of the outstanding work they do! So, shop your hearts out this December, give a gift to a friend or a teacher, and smile because you are also giving a gift to our friends at Maker Ed. They’ve been hard at work adding new resources to their website, along with some other pretty cool stuff, so check them out today to see what you’re supporting when you buy a shirt.
We’ll update this post at the end of the year so you can come back and see exactly how much you helped us to donate to this very worthwhile cause.
Until then, may your holidays be extra special and filled with joy!
