Money Bomb Planned for October 28-29

Written by NYRA Oct 23, 2009

The 2009 edition of America’s Giving Challenge has begun on Facebook Causes, and NYRA is serious about winning. Grants will be distributed to organizations that attract the most donors during the one month contest, with a top prize of $50,000 to the winning organization. Each day during the contest the organization with the most donors that day will win a $1,000 grant. NYRA will be competing strongly for this prize, members are strongly encouraged to make a donation from 3 PM EST on October 28 to 3 PM EST on October 29.

With over 47,000 members in NYRA’s cause to lower the drinking age, NYRA is looking forward to a strong showing. With 47,000 members, NYRA has one of the largest causes in this competition, if properly motivated this cause could shatter all fundraising expectations. Every donor giving $10 or more will count toward winning the prize. With young Americans putting their lives on the line in Iraq, Afghanistan and around the world, but not being respected as equal citizens here at home, now is the time to send a strong message to lawmakers across the nation that young people are tired of being treated like second-class citizens. Demand equality, donate to NYRA’s money bomb.
