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,

"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
