Today is the annual Amplify Austin Day here in Central Texas! Amplify Austin is city-wide online giving campaign that is held over a 24-hour period. It starts today at 6 PM and ends tomorrow at 6 PM.
The event was created by a local organization called I Live Here, I Give Here to inspire Austinites to make a difference in their community. Over the past four years, Amplify Austin has raised over $24.7M for hundreds of local organizations. Pretty cool, right? Last year, they raised $8.5M for over 600 Central Texas nonprofits.
Getting involved is super easy. All you have to do is go to the Amplify Austin site, select a nonprofit and donate to their page. That’s it! You can donate to as many nonprofits as you’d like.
A few of our local nonprofit partners are participating, you can check them out below:
No matter what cause you support, we encourage everyone living in Central Texas to amplify the nonprofits in our city. Follow along on Twitter and Facebook with #AmplifyATX.
