It’s been nine hours since the marathon North Texas Giving Day got underway and the thousands of nonprofits are halfway through the 19-hour effort to raise funds… and hours. If you don’t have a penny to spare, you can always donate hours to help the charitable program of your choice. More than 7,500 donors have already pledged 280,936 hours!
Any nonprofiteer will immediately tell you that the value of a volunteer is priceless. Sure, you can’t deduct it on your income tax, but you can better appreciate the nonprofit’s place within the community. A side effect is you’ll really like the person you see in the mirror.
So, get going to donate money and/or time, so North Texas Giving Day once again impresses the rest of the country. Don’t you know — everything is bigger and better in North Texas.
