This morning, the big news around here was that the 2010 Indy Give! campaign had surpassed last year's total of $198,698.
But early this afternoon, individual donors pushed the campaign beyond the nice round number of $200,000; as of this writing, we're at $201,427.44.
For the next couple hours, we're offering an incentive:
If you bring in your Give! receipt for any donation over $25, TODAY, Friday, Dec. 17, 2010 before 5:30 pm, we’ll give you a little extra reward for helping us give back — a 2010 Give! coffee mug. You can find the Independent offices at 235 S. Nevada Avenue.
The Give! goal this year is to raise a third of a million dollars for a total of 40 local nonprofits. So while we're encouraged to have raised $200,000-plus with two weeks to go, we (and those nonprofits) are still hoping for even more generosity from the community.
