24 Hours to Give
Starting 6:00 p.m. March 20th to 6:00 p.m. March 21st, 2014
Amplify Austin is a community-wide day of online fundraising with the goal of raising $4 million in 24 hours. Beginning at 6:00 p.m. on March 20th, 2014, Central Texans will be encouraged to go to AmplifyATX.org to select from a list of over 450 local nonprofits and give where it counts. Last year Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin raised close to $25,000. Can you help us reach our goal of $50,000 this year? The money we raise will go towards our Charitable Care Program to ensure that no premature or sick baby will ever be denied donor milk due to a lack of insurance or financial resources.
