4 Donors Choose Projects
Every Person in New York

As we do once a semester or so, MUG is asking you to help get books into NYC classrooms. Today, we're highlighting four project requests.

Wake-Up to Books!!! How many times have you fallen asleep while reading? Can you remember the teacher who made you read the most boring books of your life? I bet you can! Well, I want to provide my student with books that they are excited to read and can't put down! More [$447 needed]

Liberate Us with a Library! Do you remember what it was like to read a book or watch a movie and all you want to do is talk about it? My students have not yet discovered that books, like movies, can capture your imagination and then can be shared and talked about! More [$252 needed]

Reading Comes Alive with Exciting Books I am a general education 4th grade teacher. This is my 6th year at my school. This year my students are reading above grade level. I do not have enough higher level books to meet their needs. More [$378 needed]

Cool Books For Our Book Club My third grade students are smart, fun, and eager to learn. They come to school with such positive attitudes yet they come from poor backgrounds with limited supply and support. It is my goal to introduce as many books as possible to my students as we spend a lot of time reading during the school day. More [$212 needed]

I need a hotel for guests. Suggestions? Answer

Jason Polan started Every Person in New York in March of 2008. He plans on working on the project until it is finished. Look for Every Person in New York on Tuesdays in MUG and daily at Jason's site.
