Totally. Freaking. Out.

Posted Jan 23 2009 6:16pm
Today, I was reminded of all that is good in the world. Well, actually, all of this week. See, I've been following the Scienceblogs Donor Choose challenge. But, in the process I stumbled across Sarah Bunting's Tomato Nation and Linda Holmes's Things What Things blogs. Last year, Bunting challenged her readers to raise $100k for Donors Choose in exchange for her dancing around in Rockfeller Center wearing a Tomato Costume.

This week, Sarah rescued a cat ( Nikolai ) and decided to take a trip to Cincinnati. While she was IN TRANSIT to Cincinnati, Tomato Nation readers donated over ELEVEN THOUSAND DOLLARS to the Donors Choose challenge. Anyway you slice it, I equate the performance of Tomato Nation as AWESOME. This year, the Tomato travels to Washington, DC.

And on a related note, can we rally around some of the Science bloggers challenges? The engineer in me would really like to see these two projects to get kids excited about engineering funded:
Future Engineers and Designers: Geometry in Kindergarten
Infusing Engineering Design into the Classroom

I need a little help from my (blogosphere) friends.
