Amazing Raise kicks off Wednesday morning

The 36-hour online giving challenge The Amazing Raise kicks off at 6AM on Wednesday September 17th, and runs through 6PM on Thursday September 18th.

The fundraiser generated 18,000 individual gifts and $1.5 million for participating charities in 2013. Church Hill Activities and Tutoring (CHAT) took the top spot last year with 936 people pledging $76,306.

More than 500 organizations have entered the contest statewide this year, with over 400 in the Richmond region.

You can donate on and follow the live results on the Amazing Raise 2014 Challenge Leaderboard.

Here are the local organizations that I could identify on the list. Please let me know below if I’ve missed anyone.

Friends & neighbors…please join me in making a gift to ChildSavers tomorrow during the Amazing Raise! We’re celebrating 90 YEARS of providing mental health services to kids regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Last year alone ChildSavers provided 1,949.5 hours of counseling to children and teens that witnessed or experienced a traumatic event. ChildSavers also helped to improve the quality of preschool care to 1,649 children ages 0-5. Please share in our mission that every child can be safe, happy, healthy and ready to learn! Giving starts tomorrow at 6:00am. Thanks for supporting this Church Hill non-profit!
