The single best way to show your love is by donating between now and June 14th through this link:
Rebuilding San Francisco
Rebuilding SF has been selected as the non-profit to represent San Francisco. Every dollar counts for this struggling non profit (I’m on the board here) which helps low-income homeowners rebuild their homes, allows the elderly to age in place, and rebuilds community facilities. Without Rebuilding Together many low-income families would be forced to give up their homes, moving into nursing homes or abandoning their homes to foreclosure procedures for lack of funds to make fundamental repairs.
How it Works
The charity that gets the most donations on June 14th will split the prizes. Sign up here to get reminded to give on the all important date – June 14
And then when you are ready to give (ON JUNE 14!!!!) give through this link:
At 12:00 a.m.Pacific Time on June 14, the 24 hour fundraising competition begins. The top three charities that raise the most will get a share of the $30,000 prize money like so:
- 1st place: $15,000
- 2nd place: $10,000
- 3rd place: $5,000
What’s it Mean
In cities across the country, bloggers and other social media influencers have each picked one local cause to support. These champions are now rallying their followers on Twitter, Facebook, and their blogs to donate as much as possible to their chosen local charity on June 14 in the hopes of securing an additional cash award during the Twitter-based fundraising contest called “Twive and Receive” (like Twitter and give combined).
