Stephen Colbert is giving America one more reason to smile.
On Thursday the comedian announced that he will fund every classroom project in South Carolina on DonorsChoose.org, a crowdfunding site that allows teachers to request materials and experiences for their students. The contribution totals $800,000 and will finance nearly 1,000 projects for more than 800 teachers at over 375 schools. (Tweet this)
"Enjoy the learning, South Carolina," Colbert said on a live video feed at an event at Alexander Elementary School in Greenville, SC.
Colbert, who partnered with Share Fair Nation and ScanSource, raised funds by auctioning off his desk and other set pieces after "The Colbert Report" ended last year. The comedian is a member of the board of directors of the crowdfunding site and grew up in Charleston, South Carolina.
Full video of the announcement can be found on Greenville Online.
