TOMORROW is Give Miami Day!
Give Miami Day is a 24 hour online fundraising event founded by the Miami Foundation, where you can help support a bunch of local non-profit organizations. They've has verified over 1000 organizations, so you can be sure that your donation will be going to a good cause. Last year, the day brought in its highest dollar amount raised - $33 million!
Here are some of the places we've checked out that would be great to donate to! You should also take a look at the official Give Miami Day website to see all the charities needing funding.
Biscayne Bay Recovery Fund - The Biscayne Bay Recovery fund aims to protect, preserve and restore Biscayne Bay. They host community and educational programs regarding the bay as well.

Another charity I personally love is Redland Rockpit Abandoned Dogs! I've worked with them before, and the last event we held we raised over $2000 for them. Check them out too!
