Happy Give To The Max Day Twin Cities!
Today is the day that we focus on giving. We reach into our pockets, our savings, our “disposable cash” and sacrifice something that is ours and GIVE to someone else. To a charity. To an organization. To something that is dear to our hearts!
Today we challenge all of our blog readers, all of our friends and family, all of our 86,000 plus on Facebook, all of our 3,600 followers on Twitter to give.
We do not care if it is $5.00 or $5,000.00! Every penny helps!
So here is what I would like to propose. Give what you can. Here are some of our favorite charities!
1. Vest The Best MN — www.VestTheBestMN.com
Vest The Best is a Minnesota non-profit organization lead by founder Kevin Kelly and a diverse Board of Directors who work tirelessly to protect Minnesota’s Police Dogs by providing ballistic vests to K9 law enforcement units.
2. Dose Of Music — www.doseofmusic.com
Dose of Music, founded in October 2009 by Jason Hopp, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity organization dedicated to provide happiness, comfort and assistance through music for children, teens, adults, families, friends, military troops and veterans, communities and anyone in need and/or faced with less fortunate circumstances.
3. Ruff Start Rescue — www.ruffstartrescue.org
Last year we had a contest on our facebook page and we donated $250 to Ruff Start Rescue. They are a volunteer-run nonprofit that completely relies on donations.
4. The Miracles of Mitch Foundation — www.miraclesofmitch.org
The Miracles of Mitch Foundation was the charity that was second in our contest and we donated $100 bucks to them as well. They exist because of a Pinky Swear that Mitch and his dad made to continue helping kids with cancer. They continue to do so…
So we have a wide range of charities that 365 Twin Cities, Inc. are involved with. We even dumped ice water on our heads for ALS this summer! On a very personal note, I am Type 1 Diabetic. My mother has Multiple Sclerosis and I have friends who also suffer from MS as well. I have lots of places I give to and support. All I ask is that you consider what charities you have a connection with or are passionate about and give. If you do give, please comment below. I would love to hear YOUR story and why you decided to GIVE what you did. Every story and every dollar means something! Please share if you feel inclined!
Please find something that you want to support. If the above sites are not ones you can back…then find something on givemn.org There are hundreds of charities. All need your help! Also, from their website…
It’s Minnesota’s day of giving! Support your favorite cause today. Your donation could earn your favorite nonprofit or school an extra $2,000 – or even $20,000!

Please give today. What every you can afford. Whatever you can…it all helps! GIVE TO THE MAX! We are…
