Charity begins at home—on your laptop.
Because let’s face it, not every charitable contribution has to be accompanied by an open bar and a swag bag. Sometimes, it’s good to give generously without a big party as a backdrop.
And that’s what’s happening tomorrow from 6:00 a.m. to midnight during the sixth North Texas Giving Day. Last year, more than 75,000 donations were made totaling $25.2 million. Not bad for 18 hours of clicking.
With more than 1,600 certified non-profit organizations listed on the web site, you can donate to every cause that’s dear to your heart. from animal rescue groups to LGBT equality organizations. There’s even a search bar to locate your favorite organization quickly.
What’s really great about this event is that your donations have even more power than their mere face value. Prizes from $1,000 to $10,000 are awarded in various categories, including most donors and largest increase in unique donors.
So if you’ve got a favorite charity you want to see earn even more dough, tell your friends. Then watch them climb to the top of the leaderboard.
Just don’t expect us to get up at 6:00.
We find that we’re much more charitable at a respectable 9:30 a.m.
