Mercy Supporters Gear Up to “Give Local”
April 27, 2018
On Tuesday, May 2nd and Wednesday, May 3rd, Mercy Multiplied is taking part in Give Local America, a 24-hour online giving event for nonprofits. Three Mercy communities will participate under the national Give Local umbrella through its respective regional events: The Big Payback in Nashville, TN; Give STL Day in St. Louis, MO; and Big Day of Giving in Sacramento, CA. This giving event lasts only 24 hours in each city, starting at midnight CST in Nashville and St. Louis on May 2nd and at midnight PST in Sacramento on May 3rd. A total of 48 hours to make an immeasurable impact!
Give Local events were created to help nonprofits bolster support in their local communities and raise funds vital to continue their work. With residential homes for young women in each respective city of the Give Local campaign: Nashville, St. Louis, and Sacramento, Mercy hopes to generate greater awareness and funding for its work and mission in these three communities. Funds raised will help Mercy continue to provide its program completely free of charge and respond to the more than 1,000 calls per month from young women struggling with debilitating, life-controlling issues.
Give Local events will occur entirely online running for 48 hours. Once the clock starts, supporters will be able to give to Mercy through individual Mercy Multiplied profiles set up at these links: The Big Payback, Give STL Day, and Big Day of Giving.
This year, a matching sponsorship is being offered to specifically boost gifts to Mercy. All Sacramento Big Day of Giving donations will be matched up to $4,000 thanks to the Marvin “Buzz” Oates Charitable Foundation.
Gifts from the public will also be boosted with funds from sponsors of The Big Payback, Give STL Day, and Big Day of Giving. Mercy Multiplied will vie for financial incentives and additional prizes through the online leaderboards, which will track donations in real time.
Only days remain until Give Local America kicks off Tuesday, May 2nd! Mercy looks forward to two great days of giving that will make a life-transforming difference in the lives of hurting girls.
