If you’re anything like me, you routinely find yourself in difficult situations in life which require superhuman levels of ironic coolness, intellectual brilliance, quickness of wits, and deep personal goodness and you have to ask yourself, “What Would Stephen Colbert Do?” to figure out the best course of action. Well, thankfully The Colbert Report gives us a lot of guidance in this area. When we turn to the clip above, for example, we learn that when it comes to giving to an awesome charity that makes a difference in effectively educating the neediest kids in America, Stephen Colbert turns to Donor’s Choose. And now so does the entire Freethought Blogs community, including Camels With Hammers.
You should see the widget for donating on the right hand side of the page. (No, not that right, your right. There it is; see?) Click on that link and you will be led to specific projects from specific teachers in need of donations. In honor of my webmaster Dave’s recent engagement to be married to a brilliant and passionate history teacher, I have opted to make our default “History and Civics”. But feel free to look around once on the site and find whatever project it most excites you to support. This is your chance to not only make a difference, but to make it in the most specific and tangible way you can in accordance with your own priorities and values.
