Hi. I know it’s been a while since we’ve been able to talk… thanks to COVID …
But I’m writing tonight because the Borderland Rainbow Center needs your help.
Thursday October 15th is El Paso Giving Day. We are competing to win a $10,000 match. Only funds donated through their EPGD portal between 12:01 am and 11:59 pm on Thursday 10/15/20 will count toward the match. Last year the match was met in a few hours and we did not get enough donations to be considered…. and this year there is less money available. Only the first 30 organizations to achieve $10,000 in donations will be eligible for the match.
To encourage donors as soon as possible when the eligible giving period begins, we are holding a festive virtual Drag-a-thon starting at 10pm the evening of Wednesday 10/14 that will run through into the wee hours of the morning of Thursday 10/15. We are trying to encourage donors to watch the Drag-a-thon, stay up late and to give immediately after midnight (mountain time).
Here are the other power hours where we could get prizes…. Caffeinated Kick-off: 6-7 AM (the small/med/large orgs that have the MOST unique donors during that time will get an extra $1000) Brown Bag: 12-1 PM (same) Traffic Jam: 4-5 PM (same) Milk & Cookies: 9-10 PM (same)
Also if you have any ideas of folks or businesses who might want to participate in supporting us, I would appreciate it if you spread the word!
Thank you so much for your support and advice over the years. BRC could not be the success it has become without the involvement of generous folks like you. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or ideas.
My personal fundraising goal for this evening is 1,000.00
