In Washington, one group brings together many charities for a giving fair; mixing many local charities into one event of giving, matching, competing, and festivities.
"What’s your favorite charitable cause? More than 100 local charities — and the umbrella Community Foundation for Southwest Washington — are hoping you’ll check in with your conscience and then make an online donation sometime on Sept. 24 via the secure website, give-more-24.org.
"This is the second year the Community Foundation is chasing charitable giving into the cyberworld — which is where it’s been headed in recent years anyway — with an event called Give More 24! The idea is to whip up a fervor of community largesse on one special day — all aimed at pumping up local charities and nonprofits that are working to make Southwest Washington a better place to live."--Scott Hewitt, The Columbian
