Whimsy and wonderings about everyday life

Colorado Gives Day

Check out what Giving First is up to these days. December 4 is Colorado Gives Day

From the site:

Colorado Gives Day is an initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, Colorado Gives Day will take place during a 24-hour period on Tuesday, December 4, 2012. Donations will be accepted through the website GivingFirst.org, with a goal to inspire and unite Coloradans in supporting local nonprofits.

What a great idea! And, if you look at the Giving First website – what a great website! You can search for a nonprofit to support by zip code or by function. You can register your own nonprofit for the site. You can sign up you or your group to host a fundraiser. They even highlight fundraisers that are close to making their goals.

Colorado Gives is December 4. Donate or fundraise for your favorite cause.

Eliana here is five years old and raising $180 to help build a community center. She states that she wants to learn about giving as a multiplier of chai (life in Hebrew.) She is almost to $180 as I write this. Sure, someone helped her write her goal. But she will remember that she raised what must seem like an impossible amount of money , when she was five years old, forever. I did not change the world at all when I was five – how about you? Sites like this make a difference. Maybe each of us can be inspired to do so as well?
