Funding All Projects on DonorsChoose in Alaska

Feld Thoughts

Amy and I just funded all of the unfunded DonorsChoose projects in Alaska as part of the annual DonorsChoose #BestSchoolDay event. In all of the Alaska projects, Aspect Ventures matched our donation. Amy grew up in Alaska and we have a house in Homer, which is what motivated us to support Alaska this year on #BestSchoolDay.
