One Day to Put Real Power in Our Community
By Kelly Brinkley
We only do it for one day each year, but it ripples through all 365 days. Starting at midnight, Do More 24 is United Way of the National Capital Area’s 24 hour online giving day benefiting over 700 D.C., MD and VA nonprofits.
It’s a spectacular undertaking but we see the dividends payoff in a very big way. On Thursday, June 2nd from 12:00 midnight all the way until the clock strikes midnight again, we will be manning the phones, monitoring online analytics and posting on social media channels. And we will be joined by many hundreds of nonprofit organizations throughout the region who will set aside this June 2nd to create an avalanche of desperately needed funds and the opportunity to raise awareness of their missions.
We believe in building the strongest community for our region, therefore we’ve created an effort to ensure that our area’s nonprofits have the support and tools they need to make June 2nd their biggest fundraising day of the year. We’ve been working with more than 700 nonprofits to give them confidence to make big things happen in just 24 hours. You can view the full list of nonprofit organizations, ranging from animal welfare groups to adult literacy organizations, here. (more…)
