On Thursday, Nov. 15, 2012, Children’s will be participating in Minnesota’s day of philanthropy, Give to the Max Day, in hopes of raising over $100,000 for our patients and families. With your help, we can reach our ambitious goal!

Here are three easy ways you can participate in Give to the Max Day:

1. Make a gift to your favorite program! Your support on Nov. 15 helps us help kids, leverages matching gift opportunities and positions Children’s among the top charities in Minnesota when 50,000 donors are making gifts. Give via childrensMN.org/max. To choose the program your gift is supporting, click “Designate this donation for a specific cause” during the donation process and write in the program’s name.

2. Reach out to your networks: Encourage your friends and family to join you in supporting Children’s on November 15 by making a gift on childrensMN.org/max. You can designate your gift to the program of your choice and matching funds will be available, helping to maximize each gift that is made!

3. Join in Children’s Instagram challenge: Beginning October 15, Children’s is offering community members an opportunity to share their most inspiring Instagram photos via Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest. Learn more on the Kid's Health blog!

Thank you for considering partnering with Children’s on Give to the Max Day! Together, we will do great things of Minnesota’s kids and families!
