Final update 12:00am: In only 24 hours, Give to the Max Day raised $2,028,000 including prizes from nearly 18,000 participants! Well done.
Update 6:15pm: Just a minute ago, we officially hit the 13,000 mark for number of donors! At more than $1.3 million dollars, we’re doing well. There’s plenty of time left though! Have you asked your neighbors to Give to the Max?
Update 3:30pm: We’ve hit the million dollar mark, but we have a ways to go to reach our $3 million goal. Keep spreading the word!
Update 12:00pm: We’re halfway through Give to the Max Day with more than $530,000 from 5,300 donors. That’s fantastic, but let’s pick up the pace!
9:45 am: It’s finally here! We’re almost ten hours into Give to the Max Day – the ten hours where most people were asleep or getting ready for work – and $300,000 has already been donated by more than 2,600 donors. Now that you’ve settled in and had your first cup of coffee, here’s how you can help:
- Visit the Give to the Max website and find a nonprofit or cause that you support. Then donate!
- Send an email to your colleagues and a text message to your friends. Tell them to find a nonprofit or cause that they support and donate!
- Post about Give to the Max on your Twitter and Facebook pages. Encourage your friends to do the same.
- This afternoon, when you are thinking about getting that $5.00 gingerbread latte from Starbucks, take that money (and the money from tomorrow’s Starbucks run, too!) and donate it to your favorite cause instead.
