Now that Broadway is on strike, Claire Danes is using her time off from starring in Pygmalion to help others in need. Yesterday she helped DonorsChoose.org announce their national expansion. The non-profit helps teachers unite with donors to raise money for public schools, and Claire talked about how important the organization is, saying, "Over the last two years, I have funded many classroom projects on DonorsChoose.org. The creativity of the projects, and the appreciation of the students who benefit, never cease to amaze me." Sounds like Claire has found a way to serve the public as well as making herself feel good, which is the perfect way to give back as far as we're concerned.
