Sheryl Sandberg knows just how important learning opportunities can be in helping children pave their own path to success, so the Facebook COO is teaming up with DonorsChoose to give back to schools across California. Through the #BestSchoolDay campaign, Sandberg is supporting 10 challenged counties in the state to close the opportunity gap among children in need.
"Education is everything. When children get the high quality education they deserve, it opens up a lifetime of choice and opportunity," she said.
