Give to the Max – Give MN

Tomorrow is one of my favorite days of the entire year. It is Give to the Max day! Last year with the help of Kare 11, I was able to give $1,000 to one of my favorite programs in the Twin Cities.

Whatever your favorite non-profit might be, tomorrow would be a great day to make a donation to them.  You can give as little as 10 dollars and 100% of it will go to your selected charity or non-profit.

The reason why you need to give during Give to the Max day is because every hour there is one Golden Ticket up for grabs. One person who makes a donation each hour will be granted an extra $1,000. One lucky donor chosen at 11:59 PM will also receive an additional donation of $10,000.  There are also bonus funds available to organizations that collect the most donations, no matter if they are $10 donations or $5,000 donations.

Here are a few local places that I think deserve your donations:

Animal Humane Society


The College of Saint Benedict (or your local College or School)

Minneapolis Institute of Arts – They want to buy LED lighting for their galleries that will save them as much as $117,000 a year.

Make sure that you look up your favorite non-profits HERE and donate during Give to the Max day.

Operation Glass Slipper

It’s prom time again. I wish I could say that I have wonderful memories from my own but when your boyfriend asks you by saying that, “my sister made me ask you,” it doesn’t go very well. I can’t believe that relationship ended…

I did look fabulous at prom though and that is what it is all about. I was going for the wow factor in my bright orange short poofy princess dress. Yes, it was an attention catcher like some of the red carpet dresses we saw at the Oscars last night.

I think every girl deserves to feel like they are walking the red carpet!

Coming up on March 24-25 at Mall of America over 1,000 girls will receive dresses to wear to prom at the 6th annual Princess Event. The girls who are chosen would otherwise not be able to afford a dress for prom. Who needs a date when you look that good?

Started in 2006 by a mother-daughter team Operation Glass Slipper gives out dresses for prom to help create an all eyes on me moment for high school girls.

There are many ways you can help. They currently are looking for people to recommend a high school girl who is in need. Go to their website www.operationglassslipper.org to find out how to help them find girls to participate in this Cinderella experience.

If you cannot give your time. They are always looking for donations or Give Money at GiveMN.org.

Because it feels good to give.
