Here's a poorly kept secret. (Young Isaac has been hired to spread the word through viral marketing.)
Today, at 3 p.m. is PowerPhilanthropy Match Day, courtesy of The Columbus Foundation.
Here are the rules:
Beginning at 3:00 p.m., anyone may visit the Foundation's website to make an online gift to a favorite nonprofit.
The Columbus Foundation will match 50% of all public donations of $1,000 or less made online with a credit card through PowerPhilanthropy, while funds last.
Anyone can give, starting with a $20 minimum.
Kind People Are Waiting To Pounce
Let's pay attention to the "while funds last" part.
The donors of The Columbus Foundation are providing $175,000 for this match. That's a lot of money. But, the viral campaign has been successful. I expect the money to be gone within 10 minutes.
If you take a moment to register in advance, you might grab some of that $175Gs for your favorite charity. Again, you can give as little as $20.
I'll be there.
Let's crash the server.
