First of all, according to this link:

which has a section on how to apply, you apply, donorschoose puts your
request on their site, and if people donate to your request, you get the
chromebooks.  So what's Google's role in this?  Couldn't you do that any
time, anyway?

Second, our SU tech coordinator posted this internally.  I assume he got
it from donorschoose.

"As of December 10th, 11pm eastern time, we've received a tremendous
to this offer. With a limited quantity of discounted Chromebooks
available, we 
cannot accept additional submissions at this time. If you'd like to be
notified if 
additional Chromebooks become available, read on for instructions."
