What do you care about? Are you an avid reader? Do you garden? Are you the person picking up litter and taking it home to make sure it’s recycled? Maybe you help at a food pantry or give $5 to someone who needs it? We know you have a cause to fight for. Literacy. Ending homelessness. Environmental Conservation. Social justice. Amplify Austin Day is when you can direct that passion to an organization that’s fighting for that cause every single day. It all starts 6 p.m. Thursday, March 20 through 6 p.m. Friday, March 21. There are almost 500 nonprofits participating in Amplify Austin this year. All are local. All have major impact on Central Texas. All need your support. All you need to do is find them, donate online to them, and rally with the community to raise $4 million. And it really is an exciting event. During Amplify Austin Day you’ll get to see
- Live updates of the total dollars raised on the homepage
- Which nonprofits are leading in donations and winning prizes on the Leaderboard page
- How fundraisers are doing to raise money for nonprofits
- Live updates of who donated and to what nonprofit
Amplify Austin is a communal, meaningful, sustainable and proactive way to help bridge the needs and services of Central Texas. Does that sound silly? To think that $25 could change Central Texas? We don’t think so. Every dollar counts. Every small, medium, large, extra large, and Big Mac donation counts. What we’re really saying is: You Count. Make it count.
