    I'll buy one from you @Ms. Chanandler Bong! Why not, I love gambling lol. And this makes me feel a little better that the money is going to your school too. Let me know how to send you $25. You can keep the magnet, don't worry about mailing it to me, that's just unnecessary money and time.
  2. You rock. I'll pm you!

    I'm in, mostly because every time someone I know has to do something like this I usually am just like "I'll buy all of them so you don't have to deal with this" which was my parent's approach to the annual gift wrap sale.

    Anyway I can't do them all but if you let me know where to send funds I'm in for $25.

  6. Yay! Thank you chickens! Thanks to you and a random Twitter friend, I'm halfway through these suckers! I hope you all win big!
  7. I opened up an Etsy shop today to sell some bears and blankets. It is called KnittedNonsense if anyone's in need of some baby gifts.

    My friend's sister submitted this to a Sundance fellowship contest and I think a lot of women here can relate to the story: Birth Control Your Own Adventure

    An acquaintance has a new side-gig that I think most of our pet-owners will enjoy, just in time for the holidays!

    My friend is directing a series on women's health for BBC Three, and it is so amazing. The production team are the same people that did the Thanksgiving episode of Master of None! Watch!
  17. So I wasn't sure if I should put this here or in the pets thread but one of my friends has a very sweet, not quite two year old, dog who is in need of liver surgery. Girlfriend works in an animal shelter and is not rolling in dough and has a GFM for her pup's surgery. They are getting a loan to cover part of it from her boyfriend's parents but she wants to be able to pay as much as she can. He's a very good boy. They use him as a socialization dog at her shelter and he's such a sweetheart. He deserves a long life. If you feel so moved, please donate a bit to his fund.

    Ok so I created a Gofundme to get 10 Chromebooks for my classroom. We have to share 1 cart between 3 teachers and it just doesn’t work. There have been so many times where my students needed to research something and we didn’t have the Chrome cart that day. Anyways, this is my shameless plug for my Gofundme. I know my real name is on it but that’s ok. If you guys can donate or share it or both, I would really appreciate it.

    I really don’t like Donors Choose. They expect teachers to put in so much work like we have a ton of extra time. It’s annoying. I also don’t like that their campaigns run for so long. When I did it, my campaign was slated to run for over a month so I had to wait or hope it got fully funded before then. I was telling fantasynerd that I got lucky and Chevron fully funded it but before that I only had 1 donation. There’s no way it would’ve been fully funded without Chevron. Oh, I also don’t like that I have to shop through them. I’m trying out Gofundme to see how it goes. I hate asking for money.

    Oh man, I didnt even realize! I never used it myself, but I had always heard good things.

    Good luck getting the Chrome books! Technology in each classroom (not shared between 3!) is so necessary these days. We need to prepare the kids for the future, but they seem to want to provide us with only sticks and rocks to do it.

    I'm pretty disappointed that my iPads are now outnumbered by my students. Supposedly we're a 1:1 school so I'll talk to the AP in charge of tech, but if the solution is a chromebook I don't know if that will help my students.
