The Donors Choose Meetup: November 4th, NYC

As I promised at the start of the Donors Choose campaign, I am going to do a Meetup with everyone who gave to the campaign.

Here are the details:

Who: Anyone who gives to the current Donors Choose Bloggers Challenge via my giving page

Teachers: We will have several of the teachers whose classrooms we gave to in attendance

Bloggers: We hope to have some of the other bloggers who participated in the challenge in attendance

Where: Washington Irving High School cafeteria Union Square neighborhood, NYC

Date: November 4, 2009

Time: 6:30pm to 8:30pm

What: I'll give a short talk, then work the crowd for the rest of the event

If you want to attend, you have to do two things:

1) Give to the current Donors Choose Bloggers Challenge via my giving page. Any amount will do. It's not about the amount, it's about the donation.

2) Sign up for the event on the Meetup page

We'll have a list of everyone who gave via my giving page at the event and we'll check everyone in that way.

I am really excited about this event. It was a reader, Dave in Hackensack, who gave me this idea back in August when I was doing my birthday challenge. I want to thank Elaine Perez of Donors Choose who has helped to make this a reality. I look forward to seeing you there.
