Our World Give Day partners, FirstGiving, wrote a great post about how to join the conversation and give.
In fact, a whole bunch of bloggers and friends of FirstGiving have been weighing in on the idea that “small scale donors are the backbone of philanthropy.” We’ve all heard that “every little bit counts,” but this statement is bold. The backbone? Really?
Yes! is the resounding consensus from our fans on Facebook. And our experience bears this out – for almost a decade, people have raised millions of dollars for causes they care about on FirstGiving by asking family and friends to give in small denominations – $50, $100, $25, sometimes even just $1. The success of these passionate people speaks for itself.
