We at MHF want to send a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who donated during the Give Local Piedmont campaign. This was our first year participating and we did well! The final numbers are:
100 donations through GLP for a total of $5,999! Just one dollar short of the last minute $6,000 goal but that's okay because we received an ADDITIONAL $485 from our site for a total of $6,484!!! WAY TO GO!!! We also came in a very respectable 12th place in the number of unique donations; we had 100 donations and the entity in first place had 413 donations. We call this a success for our animals. You all are the best!
Give Local Piedmont (GLP) is a 24-hour online crowdfunding giving event. Crowdfunding raises small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the internet. The event raises money for our local nonprofits and raises community awareness about our nonprofits. MHF is excited to join GLP for this annual event. Last year $727,000 was raised for local nonprofits from 5000+ donations around the nation!
Through our wonderful volunteers and friends, MHF has the chance to raise a significant amount of money on May 3rd. Our goal is to raise at least $25,000 to help support the operation expenses of our adoption program.
Here's How to Do it:
Anytime on May 3, 2106 (midnight to 11:59 p.m.) go to www.givelocalpiedmont.org, select Middleburg Humane Foundation (MHF), and make a minimum donation of $10.
If everyone receiving this newsletter donated just $10, we would raise $20,000!
MHF has the opportunity to win prizes from GLP throughout the day on May 3rd.
The top three large organizations (operating budgets of $250,000 or more) with the most unique donors with gifts of $10 or more will receive the following prizes:
1st Place - $5,000
2nd Place - $2,500
3rd Place - $1,250
