EarthLinks will be participating in the first ever Colorado Gives Day. This is a simple way to increase charitable giving across Colorado and support EarthLinks’ mission to Connect People-at-Risk with Earth-at-Risk.
Colorado Gives Day is a new initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving. Presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank, CO Gives Day will take place during a 24-hour period starting at 12 a.m. on Wednesday, December 8, 2010. Donations will be accepted through the website GivingFirst.org, with a goal of raising $1 million in one day for Colorado charities.
To donate on Colorado Gives Day (or any other day!) simply click the Donate Now button on the right side of this page, or go to www.GivingFirst.org and enter EarthLinks in the Keywords or Charity Name field and press Search. Then click on the orange Donate Now button next to the EarthLinks’ name and enter the donation information as directed. You can donate with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express) or bank account and need not create an account on GivingFirst.org.
UPDATE: If you would like to give to EarthLinks on Colorado Gives Day, but don’t want to wait until December 8, you can now schedule a one-time donation that will qualify for the incentive!
