Give to the Max Day Raises $2 Million for Washington DC Nonprofits

Starting at midnight on November 9th, nonprofits around Washington DC started raising money as part of Give to the Max Day – a one day online fundraiser created by Razoo and supported by supported by several major partners, including Care2.

At the end of 24 hours, $1,886,584 had been donated to 1,285 different nonprofits. Top nonprofits were also eligible for prize money donated by various partners and that brought the total raised to $2,034,584. Over 17,000 donors participated in the day’s fundraising challenge.

Razoo had previously held two Give to the Max Days in Minnesota raising a total of $24 million for 4,000 nonprofits.

Top nonprofits by most dollars raised were:

  • FLOC – For Love of Children, Inc.

  • Little Lights Urban Ministries

Top nonprofits by most donors were:

  • Little Lights Urban Ministries
  • Homeward Trails Animal Rescue Incorporated
  • Kristin Brooks Hope Center
  • Trustees of the Corcoran Gallery of Art
  • DC Lawyers for Youth

Each nonprofit created a customized giving page that listed multiple giving amounts and specific ways that those amounts would be used to help the organization. Nonprofits were also encouraged to spread the word about Give to the Max Day and rally their followers on social networks, like Facebook and Twitter, to generate additional donations.

More information about Give to the Max Day can be found on the Give to the Max website or on their Facebook page.

After you sign a petiton above, others petitions are then presented for you to sign;

BEWARE OF THE PETITIONS YOU SIGN WITHOUT READING THEM. THERE'S A PETITION ABOVE FROM "CREATIVE AMERICA". IF YOU READ IT CAREFULLY THEY ARE ACTULLY TRYING TO TAKE YOUR INTERNET FREEDOM AWAY. DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE LINE "PROTECT WORKERS" IN THE TITLE!!!!!

They have stooped to a NEW low posting a petition like that on this website. They would like to control What you see and where you go on the INTERNET.
