Stretch your Giving Dollars: Giving Hearts Day on February 10!

You all know I love to share about a good deal. Normally I share freebies, coupons and ways to save money, but today I'm excited to share with you an opportunity to get a deal while giving money!

This Thursday February 10th is Dakota Medical Foundation's Giving Hearts Day, where Dakota Medical Foundation and other generous donors will match contributions of $10 or more made online at ImpactGiveback.org to benefit dozens of charitable causes across the region.  What a great way to encourage giving and also to help you support organizations that you care about!

This opportunity to double your giving is only available on Thursday February 10, and only for online donations of $10 or more.  There are 99 charitable organizations participating!  Here are links to learn more about each organization.

  1. My personal favorite is Jail Chaplains!! They sponsor a full time chaplain in Cass County Jail and do as much as they can to help inmates succeed in life after jail. They work with many churches in the community to offer classes and other practical support for people in times of need. Thanks for hi lighting this!
