Thanks to the Wasserman Foundation, starting Monday January 23rd select Starbucks stores in the city of Los Angeles will distribute 285,000 DonorsChoose.org gift cards with purchase, while supplies last. (See a list of participating stores.) These $10 gift cards can be used to support any Los Angeles public school classroom project on DonorsChooseLA.org.
The length of time cards are available in stores will vary depending on the store. For the best chance of receiving a card, it’s recommended that you visit a local Starbucks early on the 23rd. We estimate cards will last somewhere between 2-6 days.
Donors who already redeemed a Wasserman Foundation gift card distributed by LAUSD last year will be able to redeem an additional gift card obtained at a local Starbucks. Gift cards cannot be redeemed on behalf of others, and are limited to one per person in order to reach as many Los Angeles residents as possible. A maximum of 75 cards can be applied to projects from one teacher.
Visit www.DonorsChooseLA.org to redeem your gift card! Gift cards expire on March 16, 2012.

According to the list of participating Starbucks…it looks like every Starbucks in LA is participating! But do double check…
If you don’t know a student at a local public school and you receive a card, send us an email and we’ll connect the card with one of our neighborhood local schools.
The Wasserman Foundation has partnered with the Los Angeles Unified School District and has pledged $4 million to help fund projects in the LAUSD.
Mary has lived in the Hancock Park area for over 20 years - including homes in Larchmont Village and Windsor Square. Mary has lived in some great places in her life - but none compare to the convenience and majesty of our neighborhood. For Mary, the neighborhood has been a wonderful home to her large, extended family...at one time she had family members living on seven different Hancock Park area blocks! Larchmont Buzz is a labor of love - built to celebrate the neighborhood and to elevate the conversation in the area.
