Colbert Raises money for SC Schools

I officially (heart) Stephen Colbert. When he got the news on his show that he would NOT be on the Democratic ticket in South Carolina, he told viewers to go to DonorsChoose.org, which helps schools with supplies.

“So I encourage everyone, go on, make donations to teachers in South Carolina, let’s make a difference,” Colbert said.

That short mention at the end of his show, brought in the money for SC schools!!

The brief comment by the 43-year-old talk-show host — who has since dropped his bid for the White House — raised $59,000 in 10 days and reached 13,000 public school students in South Carolina, said Peter Bloom, the group’s national chairman.

Way to go STEPHEN COLBERT!!! I wonder if Doritos was on the list?
