The Story: The Denver Rescue Mission provides Thanksgiving Dinner for thousands of homeless and poor individuals and families each year. This year they’ve had requests for 18,000 turkeys … but have only had 270 donated so far! The StartUp Community of Colorado has decided to see if we can raise funds to get them 10,000 Turkeys in 7 Days! More about the Mission and its Turkey Drive here; http://www.denverrescuemission.org/turkey.
We need your help! Here’s what to do:
Click DONATE on this page! Every $10 buys a Turkey. Donate as much as you can! Many of the companies associated with this effort have committed to match the first 50 Turkeys their employees donate to fund (FullContact, PaySimple, Newsgator). All donations are tax-deductible.
Share this link with family, friends, everyone you know and help us win the Martha Stewart contest! Wouldn’t it be awesome to generate $25,000 for the Rescue Mission on top of 10,000 Turkeys!
#10000Turkeys on Twitter!
Turkey Toss Day of Action! Monday, November 19 everyone interested can join us to collect thousands of frozen turkeys, toss ‘em on a huge truck, and get ‘em over to the Mission. Stay tuned for details!
Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org or 303-552-3903.
Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for your support!
