Actress Elisabeth Shue (C) looks back at young students as a PSA is displayed on a screen during a news conference to launch DonorsChoose.org, at Grand View Boulevard Elementary School in Los Angeles, California October 26, 2005. Started in 2000 by Charles Best, a public school teacher in the Bronx, the web site enables teachers to submit online proposals requesting needed books, art supplies, technology, and other resources, and then allows donors to choose exactly which project they want to fund.
