The Big Give Extended to 6pm
This year’s Big Give event has officially been extended to 6pm today, giving locals a few more hours to support their favorite nonprofit organizations.
Some technical issues during yesterday’s 10am launch kept the donation site from fully functioning, but that didn’t stop donors from getting involved later in the day. As of 11:25am today, over $18.6 million has been leveraged during this year’s event, surpassing 2017’s total of $18 million.
Additionally, if the selfless act of giving isn’t enough of an incentive, every donor also gets a receipt for some free rewards from partners at Donatos, Jeni’s, Piada, White Castle and The Candle Lab!
“There is truly no better feeling than being connected to your community and doing your part to make a difference,” stated Jeni Britton-Bauer, founder of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. “Serving others gives me the greatest sense of peace.”
