Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert and actress Yvette Nicole Brown offered to pay for 110 projects and wish-lists that Cleveland-area teachers have for their classrooms.
Anonymous donors funded another 430 classroom projects across Ohio as part of a nationwide push from 60 athletes, celebrities and business leaders to "flash fund" projects that teachers needed donations for.
All of the projects were listed on the "DonorsChoose.org" website, which allows teachers to post materials they need for their class or projects they want to run, the amount of money they need and breakdowns of the cost.
Meg Colwell, principal of the Puritas Community Elementary school in Cleveland, may have been the biggest winner in the region. Because math teacher Kimberly Wadsworth had taught teachers about donorschoose.org two weeks ago, 15 teachers had listed projects and all were funded.
