To be fair, our feature today is something you don’t have to be in the Twin Cities to participate in. In fact, you could do it while vacationing in the Australian Outback, if that’s what’s waving your flag these days.
The reason it can be done from anywhere is because it’s done completely online. GiveMN.org is an organization that allows you to give funds to your favorite charity or nonprofit online. It combines the best aspects of social media (social, easy access) with giving to charitable causes.
Today is Give to the Max day, but of course you don’t have to give just today. The beauty of online giving is that it can be done completely outside of time and space. You can instantly donate to a nonprofit from among nearly 1 million organizations currently registered. Just create a free account to organize all your online giving and you’ll have your donation history at your fingertips any time.
You can also set up a free fundraising page for your favorite cause and let all your friends know about it. Raise funds with your own drive. That’s where the social aspect comes in. It’s also super easy to set up recurring donations, which makes it easy for everyone. Speaking of easy, it’s also a snap to share your fundraising page on other social media sites, like Facebook and Twitter, or your blog. Let your friends and family know and participate in giving to your cause along with you.
It’s a breeze to set up. Get started at givemn.razoo.com.
