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:
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.

Tonight! The Minneapolis Institute of Arts is hosting “flowers after hours” from 6-9PM.
I went last year and had a blast. If I were you, I would park at the Wells Fargo parking garage located at 28th Street and Fourth Avenue South. There is a shuttle that will then bring you to the MIA or Valet Parking is $10.
There is a cash bar and live music.
Because its free!
