Something BIG is coming … and it’s right around the corner. When it happens, will you be ready? No need to stock up on essentials at the grocery store, because we’re not expecting an asteroid collision or a superbug pandemic heading for Central Texas. It’s not yet time for the new season of Game of Thrones or a breakout Apple product. A natural disaster in Austin in March isn’t anticipated, though a tidal wave (of sorts) would be welcome.
Stay calm now. Pay close attention. (Can you hear the background music building?) Now take a deep breath. And Wait. For. It …
When the clock strikes 6pm on Thursday March 20, Amplify Austin, a 24-hour giving festival begins—and LSS is in it to win it! Hosted by I Live Here, I Give Here, the goal is to “give where we live and help where we can.” Nonprofit friends and supporters of more than 400 Austin-based organizations will have 24 hours to collectively contribute, and have an even greater impact by giving on “Amplify Austin Day” because sponsors will match donations, and prizes are awarded to the nonprofits that garner the most dollars or donors.
From 6pm on March 20 to 6pm on March 21, LSS’ Austin foster care and adoption programs will benefit from your donations. LSS participated in last year’s Amplify Austin campaign, which was a good warm-up to making a bigger splash in 2014. So this year we’re for a Central Texas tidal wave.
Plan to join us on March 20 as we Amplify Austin and Amplify LSS’ Austin children’s programs. In the meantime, make sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter, where you can stay tuned for more Amplify Austin news.
