Buy at Borders, help out public schools

Superman If you're doing any holiday shopping Saturday or Sunday (that's Dec. 4 and 5), you can help out public schools by shopping at Borders - or even just ordering a latte there.

Thanks to the documentary Waiting for Superman (which analyzes the U.S. public school system) and a promotional collaboration between Borders and PublicAffairs, the publisher of the movie's companion book, anyone who makes an in-store purchase Saturday and Sunday gets a $15 gift card to donate to a public school of his or her choice through donorschoose.org. Doesn't matter if you buy a book or an espresso.

Buy a copy of Waiting for Superman: How We Can Save America's Failing Public Schools, and you get a second $15 card to give to the school.
