Help Secondipity Give the Gift of Education with DonorsChoose.Org

Posted on


At Secondipity, we believe in giving back to the community. That is why a portion of every purchase you make goes to support classrooms in need. We partner with DonorsChoose.Org to help provide children in deserving schools the tools and experiences to enhance their education. Check out the Secondipity Giving Page to see your dollars at work in helping classrooms across the United States.

This month Secondipity donated $500 to help provide three classrooms with engaging technology to support education. In all three classrooms, students are from low income households and needed various technology to aid in learning. Read more about each of the campaigns we chose this month below:

The first recipient was Ms. Mansell's classroom at Payne Elementary in Washington, D.C. (like Secondipity HQ). Secondipity hopes the color printer and printing supplies will help provide engaging visual aids to enhance the education and learning opportunities for Ms. Mansell's Pre-K to 2nd Grade Students. 

Ms. Taylor's classroom in the Bronx, NY was another campaign Secondipity supported this month. We hope the two Chromebooks funded through this campaign will make a difference this school year for Ms. Taylor's Pre-K to 2nd Grade students in their math and reading centers.

Ms. Grussmark's 9th-12th grade students in Homestead Senior High School in Homestead, FL were also in need of Chromebooks to enhance their education through engaging with technology of the 21st century. Secondipity wanted to support these hardworking students with the technology needed for their projects and for developing transferable skills for the workforce. 

We hope these donations helped to make a difference for the students! Do you have a recommendation for our next DonorChoose.org donation recipient? Send us a Tweet or Post on our Facebook with the hashtag #SecondipityGivesBack and check back to see our next recipients in November!

Sony MDR-XB80BS/B Headphones Review

My anticipation was high. I had plans for these sweat-proof headphones, and I was chomping at the bit to give them a go! After ripping open the packaging, I was relieved to see the headphones came with ear buds in various sizes. I have weirdly small ear holes, and often encounter issues with ear buds actually staying in my [...]

Often the word 'refurbished' is interpreted as a product which was used, damaged and, at one time, may not be in working order. This caused consumers to sometimes avoid these [...]
