The Give Me $5 campaign makes it easy for anyone to support the cause with our Give Me $5 ask – donations in increments of $5 making it most affordable to give and to fundraise.

When: The campaign will run from August 1 – 31, 2014.  

The ‘Give Me $5’ Goal:  $50,000 in one month!

It’s easy to join the campaign!


Sign up as a champion to fundraise a goal of $100 in one month online! That’s just 20 friends and family members donating $5 each to reach the goal! http://www.firstgiving.com/21980
