Henrietta Lacks!

Oct 21 2011 Published by under Life

The truly amazing Dr. Becca and I really, really want to see a particular Donors Choose project completely funded. Today. The Stolen Cells of Henrietta Lacks! is this very cool project run by Ms. Mucha at a school in a high poverty area within Baltimore. If you've ever been to Baltimore you know that high poverty there can mean really high poverty.

As of this moment, we need about $300 to fully fund this very, very cool project. Why is it so cool? Firstly Ms. Mucha's students will learn some science. Secondly, they will be learning some local history (the Lacks live in Baltimore!). Lastly, they'll read. That's a trifecta of win!

So give!

As a bonus - the Donors Choose Board of Directors is matching all donations made today through tomorrow, so you'll get to help even more kids!

Do eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeettttttttttttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!
