Seed Media Group Donates Matching Funds to ScienceBlogs' DonorsChoose Challenge

tags: , , , , , ,

Excellent news, my peeps! Seed Media Group has stepped up to donate matching funds of up to $15,000 to our DonorsChoose! This money will be divided evenly between all 21 of us ScienceBloggers who have set up a DonorsChoose Challenge.

Collectively, and thanks to our wonderful readers, all of the ScienceBloggers have raised more than $18,000 for our DonorsChoose Challenge classrooms. Best of all, the average reader donation has been slightly more than $75 each, so we have YOU to thank for this!
In addition to donating a substantial sum of money to the ScienceBloggers’ DonorsChoose Challenges, Seed Media Group is also holding a special drawing every Friday to award a bunch of cool prizes to those who donate to DonorsChoose. These prizes include 50 subscriptions to Seed magazine, ScienceBlogs laptop sleeves, custom USB drives and ScienceBlogs mugs. The coolest prize drawing of all will be held at the conclusion of the DonorsChoose Challenge: they’ll have a drawing for one Apple iPod Touch. If you have donated to any of our ScienceBlogs’ DonorsChoose Challenges, you are eligible to win a prize. To qualify for a prize drawing, please forward your confirmation email to and you will be added to the drawings. If you’ve donated more than once, or to more thanone of the ScienceBloggers’ Challenges, then send all your donation confirmations in to increase your chances of winning a prize!
There’s only one week left in the DonorsChoose Challenge: Let’s make a strong finish on behalf of America’s children; our future.


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.
