TV show hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon have teamed up to help raise money for DonorsChoose.org, an online charity that raises money for schools in need.
Fallon had promised that if fans could help reach the goal of raising $26,000 by Friday, April 1, Colbert would perform the viral hit "Friday" by Rebecca Black. Happily, that goal was reached days ahead of schedule. Colbert's backing band for the song will be Fallon's house band, hip-hop group The Roots.
DonorsChoose.org is an online charity that promotes fundraising projects for schools across the nation. Visitors can browse through projects on the site, and decide which project they want to donate to, receiving a breakdown of how every dollar was spent after the funding goal is reached.
