How SOS Works
Our Schools is designed to perfectly match donors with the needs
of students in under-privileged school districts. The idea is
simple: have teachers identify
the specific needs of their classrooms and let donors decide which supplies
they would like purchase for donation.
The SOS process is similar to an online wedding registry, except that it is built
for teachers. Instead of brides identifying which tumblers they want, teachers
create Supply Lists specifying the supplies their students need.
Donors view these Supply Lists and "purchase" specific supplies from
the Supply Lists.
SOS then buys the “purchased” supplies and has them delivered directly
to the teacher.
Once the supplies are received, the teacher confirms receipt and has their students
post online thank you notes, which the donor can then read.
