The Great MN Give Together - Record Breaker?

by Doug MacRostie

Last year was the first Give to the Max day, when Minnesotans truly gave to the max: as a State we had the most successful one-day online fundraising drive in history totally over $14 million for 3,434 different Non-Profits (smashing previous record of $3.8 million in Dallas).

And until 11:59 pm tonight we're trying to do it again, and every donation you make gives your favorite organization the chance to win even more money. Time to GIVE!

On the search page at givemn.org, you can find local organizations to support. Let's say you want to find a Non-Profit in Deer River, or Bena, or Bagley, or Aitkin... done. It's great how well they have all of this put together in such a user friendly way. And you can also use the local site, northerncommunityinternet.org which has been working with givemn.org.

While you're at it, don't forget to throw a little in for 91.7 KAXE, the 90.5 KBXE building fund and Northern Community Internet, all services of Northern Community Radio :) Our mission is to build community in Northern Minnesota through radio programming, cultural events and interactive media.

We bring local stories and events from the airwaves and internet into communities and homes. We have local volunteers from all over Northern MN who come in to play music, or talk about the nature in their lives, or share a story about what they saw in the woods while deer hunting. Northern Community Radio is local, independent, community oriented and vital. Click here.
