Ben Franklin game day was a GREAT SUCCESS! 106 donors contributed $100 or more on Dec. 5th, raising $27,500 for the many programs in the Holiday Catalog. WaHoooo! Helen Bee won the prize drawing and the Orcas Community Resource Center will get an additional $1000 from OICF for their emergency services fund.
$34,500 has been raised in the Holiday Catalog so far (through Dec.6th). Flat Ed Lago is making his way around the community. If you see him, take a selfie, post it online (Facebook or Instagram) with #giveorcas and you will have a chance to win $250 for the organization of your choice in the Holiday Catalog.
The next big game is on Thursday, Dec. 12th–Unique Donor Day. One program will win a $1000 donation boost. Please help us spread the word and keep the momentum going. We are on track to break our previous record, meaning even greater support of the programs that keep Orcas a vibrant community. www.giveorcas.org will be open through Dec. 20th.
Check out this story about giving (click here). It brought a tear to my eyes. You never know what impact you will have when you contribute, but we do know that lives can change (both for the recipient and the donor).
