This post is for my fellow Orange Countians (I have never written Orange Countian before and I think I like it!) Do you love where you live? I do. It’s hard not to, right? Truth be told, I also have a mad love for fundraising.
For those of you who have followed my blog for awhile, you might remember our Team Tiny Oranges raised over $30,000 for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation a few years ago. The most beautiful example of what is possible when many people come together to donate to a cause.
-> It all adds up and makes a BIG difference!
Which is why I am over the California sun excited about the Orange County Community Foundation’s i♥oc Giving Day coming up on April 21st – 22nd, 2015. A first-ever countywide giving event to benefit local Orange County non-profit organizations working hard right in our own backyard.
i♥oc Giving Day
i♥oc Giving Day will take place from 6am on April 21st through 12pm on April 22nd with a goal of raising $2 million for local Orange County non-profit organizations. To kick start the fundraising, OCCF is investing $500K to establish the bonus pool with a goal of generating $1.5M in online donations in 30 hours. Think we can do it? I know we can!
How You Can Be a Part of It:
2. Go to the iheartoc.org website online starting at 6am on April 21st through 12p on the 22nd and make a secure, tax-deductible donation to one of the participating local non-profits.
3. Spread the love! Share the #iheartoc movement and iheartoc.org website on your social media pages and inspire others to participate in this amazing community event!
Giving feeds the soul. I hope you will be inspired to give where you live!
