Earlier this year, I put up a prayer and requested funds to receive 10 new digital chess clocks needed for tournament play. These clocks are quite expensive for a club such as us. I wasn’t really to confident about having our project funded through Donor’s Choose, but I gave it a shot anyway…we had nothing to lose by asking.
I was pleasantly surprised on the day after Christmas to see an email that our project had been funded. We were nearly $500 dollars away from our goal. A generous donor from Nebraska put up the large sum of money to fund our project. It is humbling, yet encouraging to see our program grow and to have others see the benefits of chess has on students.
Previously, we had been using an online chess clocks using laptops, which did work for our class tournaments, but couldn’t use them for tournament play.
The clocks should be at KLA shortly.
10 of them coming our way thanks to the donors of Donor’s Choose!
