One of the reasons the Giving Party is so much fun is that it’s an easy party to pull together. I’m just blown away by the generosity of people in our community. You invite them, they come, and they give so generously! One amazing example of this is the Brader-Araje Foundation. Last year, we invited Laura Brader-Araje to join us at the party to represent DonorsChoose.org. Not only did she show up and offer fantastic information about the organization, she provided each guest with a $100 gift certificate from their foundation to spend with DonorsChoose.org. We were overwhelmed by her generosity. And this year, when we invited her back, she offered to do it again!!
Evites went out last night. We hope you’ll join us this year, have a blast spending your $100 with DonorsChoose.org AND jump start your holiday shopping by giving to the other organizations represented. As one guest said in her Evite reply, “it’s more fun to come and give than open your 401K statement right now!”
