You live here, so give here! Join us for the first ever Amplify Austin – a new 24-hour, online giving event to increase philanthropy in Central Texas.
The first annual Amplify Austin event will begin today, Monday, March 4, 2013 at 7pm. Donations will be accepted through their secure website, AmplifyATX.org, and through authorized secure AmplifyATX giving forms located on some participating nonprofit websites. The goal is to inspire Central Texans to come together for 24 hours to contribute $1 million to support the life-changing work of local nonprofit organizations.
The LIVESTRONG Foundation provides free cancer support services to help people cope with the financial, emotional and practical challenges that accompany the disease. In the Austin area we offer transportation services to and from treatment, one-on-one support in person as well as over the phone and online. We have funded many programs for Austinites with cancer such as the LIVESTRONG at the YMCA in North, Central and South Austin as well as educational classes for survivors in English and Spanish.
Help us amplify your donation. Each hour, the organization that receives the most donors or the most dollars raised receives a $1,000 grant. Help us make 10am -11am Tuesday ?Yellow Hour?! Donate $25 or more during that time and help us receive additional funds. Visit AmplifyATX.org for more information and to donate. Thanks for helping us make Austin a better place for people with cancer.
