#BestSchoolDay brings out the best in stars' investments in youth
Tennis star Serena Williams, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and actor Samuel L. Jackson were among those Thursday who helped fulfill thousands of funding requests for students across the country as a part of #BestSchoolDay.
The celebrities flexed their star power – and bank accounts – to help more than 11,000 classroom projects fulfill their needs to a total of $14 million from DonorsChoose.org, according to a Huffington Post editorial.
The “flash mob” style campaign began with philanthropists but was an effort to hopefully inspire others to help students in their communities and reach a total of more than 20,000 classroom projects fulfilled.
Stars also flexed their social media muscles for a movement using, of course, #BestSchoolDay.
