Major Fundraiser to Help Venice Cat Coalition
You may have heard of The Giving Partner Challenge, which occurs this Tuesday and Wednesday throughout Sarasota and the surrounding area.Three hundred non-profits compete to raise money online from their donors, new donors and extra funds from the foundations.
Venice Cat Coalition is among the smallest of the groups to be competing for the money. Will you donate to our cause to help local cats? If so, keep reading. Circulate to your cat loving friends all over the country and the world if you feel they also would help us.
Here is what to do:
The best/busiest time to donate is in the first few minutes, starting at 7 a.m. Eastern on Tuesday, March 5.The donations made then likely will get matched.Once the match money is all gone, people will continue to give for 36 hours and other special prizes will be made to the nonprofits.
So please get your credit card and your coffee cup set up by 6:45 a.m. on Weds morning and be ready to go online and contribute $25 or more to the Venice Cat Coalition then. They will match up to $1,000 from each unique donor using a unique credit card.
