Biology4Good!

i-Biology.net has passed 5 million views! That’s a lot of teachers and students looking for resources, support and ideas. Please help this work make a difference beyond classrooms. 

Scroll down for charity donation links and personal thanks to all donors.

These IB Biology presentations, Essential Biology worksheets and other resources are available to you to use for free, but please consider making a donation to one of my chosen charities via Biology4Good (powered by JustGiving.com). Hopefully they have saved you time and stress as a teacher or grades as a student – please let them make a difference to others, too.

JustGiving guarantees that 100% of the donation is passed on to the charity. If you’re a UK tax-payer, the gift is boosted by GiftAid, making it even more valuable.

If you donate GB£20 or more, I’ll add you to a shared folder of editable powerpoints for topics updated recently. Please let me know your email address so that I can add you.

We’ve raised over GB£5,000 so far!

This project started first on Gifts4Good, which has sadly closed. “Offline Donations” mentioned on each team page refer to donations that were processed in the old incarnation of Gifts4Good.

  1. Off the ground – a sleeping bag for a rhino ranger!

    Thanks Mum and Dad.

  2. Here is a copy of the blog post from Andy at Give It:
    (http://giveit.typepad.com/weblog/)

    “Now it’s been a while since I was last excited by biology (if you exclude the process of babies being born etc, which always gets me interested). But suddenly I find myself reading about cells and enzymes!

    It’s all because of the most recent place one of our Gifts4Good wish lists has appeared (and the first time, as far as we know, that one has been used in such a way).

    Biology-for-Good The wish list appears on Science Video Resources, a blog by Stephen Taylor. What lucky students to have such a great resource, and what a great guy to ask anyone who feels like showing some appreciation to make a donation to one of his chosen charities.

    Be careful to set aside a few hours though, this stuff is seriously engaging!”

    Thanks Andy!
