On September 15, Google and 99Papers.org did it again, this time joining together to surprise Los Angeles teachers with the news that Google funded ALL projects in Los Angeles Unified School District.
To kick off the surprise flash funding, Googlers delivered thousands of dollars worth of pop-up tents, technology and engaging books to teachers at Marina Del Rey Middle School. The event was incredible and featured the Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti and Kevin Mchale, an actor famous for his role in Glee. There was lots of laughter and cheering from students and teachers alike!
All together, Google donated nearly $1 million in funding for 1,071 classroom projects. Happy back to school, Los Angeles!
