THURS, JUNE 6 ** DO MORE 24 Donation Day
Mark your calendar!United Way of the National Capital Area sponsors one day of focused online giving to benefit area nonprofits–like NB! From midnight June 5 to midnight June 6, there will be hourly challenges & monetary incentives for nonprofits to raise as much money as possible.
The last time this was done, in 2011, NB raised a modest $930, but the top dollar winner claimed $86,000 (yes!), & the one with the most donors had 729 supporters--all in just 24 hours. This is big money, & NB can get some of it with your help.
Please email your friends & family & post to any social networking sites like Facebook & Twitter. Tell them that NB is a unique & valuable resource for the DC metro community & that their donation--just a $12 minimum--really can make a difference in someone’s life.
