Subject: The thing that will change your life as you know it


Hi there,

I used to hate learning, but Khan Academy ( changed my mind. This nonprofit provides learning resources totally for free that I have been using a lot to study!  However, it’s a learning resource for anyone - whether you’re in school, a lifelong learner, or helping someone else to learn.  Because of Khan Academy, I now love learning.  


I don’t usually email people like this, but I’m so excited about it, just had to share it. Check it out now at

Happy learning!

2. Shape our online community:

We always appreciate folks helping to monitor the community questions posted on our site (e.g. up/down voting comments under any video) and providing answers (and flagging inappropriate comments) where possible.  

3. Help out in our Support Community!

We have a bunch of folks who can use your expertise and encouragement currently asking questions in our Support Community.  In addition, we have a Support Advocate program for those who want to get even more involved with this.

4. Share Khan Academy globally

5. Share your story!

It's inspiring for us to hear how Khan Academy has touched lives.  Check out our stories page to see and hear from others.  We especially like videos ;) 


6. Tell friends about painless donations

Hi there - Check out a free program called AmazonSmile where 0.5% of the price of your eligible purchases on Amazon will be donated to a great non-profit - Khan Academy. The prices are the same, and you help provide a free, world-class education for the world at the same time!

Just go to and it’s automatically taken care of.   If you don’t use Amazon, never fear - Khan Academy also appreciates lots of other types of  donations.

Visit the Khan Academy contribute page for more on volunteer opportunities.
