Annie Leibovitz, DonorsChoose and Myself Walked Into a School...

Hey folks, I went to NYC a few months back for a Vanity Fair photo shoot with DonorsChoose.org staff, board members, and advisers. All photos were taken by Annie Leibovitz.

The photo shoot took place at P.S. 33 in NYC. Featured are DonorsChoose.org board members and advisers Timothy Ferriss, author of The 4-Hour Workweek; Livia Stone and Biz Stone, Twitter co-founder; Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit; Charles Best, founder and C.E.O. of DonorsChoose.org; Stephen Colbert, host of The Colbert Report; Desirée Rogers, C.E.O. of Johnson Publishing; Anil Dash, blogger and founding partner of Activate; Theresia Gouw, partner at Accel; and myself. Though, somebody who feels I'm a celebrity may need to get out more often.

Yes, I'm repeating myself but I'm on the board for Donorschoose.org, and I'm currently giving $10k to match half the cost of projects with the keyword "military" if someone like you provides the remainder. If you're able, please help make some matches with the Double Your Impact Offer.

My favorite picture from the shoot is that of Goofy Uncle Craig:

Here's one of my mom reading the article in Vanity Fair after I gave her a copy:

You can read the whole Vanity Fair article here, and please remember to give to military projects via DonorsChoose if you're able.
