2017: The Year in Gratitude

Stack of thank-you notesSpoiler alert: This post contains a hearty helping of joy.

When someone donates $50 or more to a classroom project on DonorsChoose.org, they get the chance to receive handwritten thank-you notes from the students they helped. Many donors then hop online and use the #sharethanks hashtag to spread the love.

All told, donors have funded 195,587 classroom projects this year  — and students sent 1,307,548 of these special notes in return. We’ve collected just a few of our favorites, one for each month, as shared by the recipients. Here’s the most thankful year-in-review you’ll read in 2017!
