I just wanted to draw your attention to the JustGive note in last Friday’s blue folders.
For ten days only, our electronic donation service, JustGive.org, will add $10 to your online donation (of any amount). This offer is being made in recognition of their 10th anniversary.
This is a great time to try this service for the first time, or if you’ve already donated to make another small contribution and “draw down” the extra money from JustGive.
To participate, visit www.justgive.org/10years and select “Madera Elementary School’– then click “Donate Now” button. Your donation will go to the Madera PTA and be spent to improve the educational experience for all the children at Madera.
(Please be aware that JustGive charges a 3% fee; they pool these fees and make additional, very worthy, donations. In the last 10 years, JustGive has donated $130 million to more than 65,000 charities; visit their website to learn more.)
PLEASE MAKE YOUR DONATION BY TUESDAY, OCTOBER 19TH. And THANKS from all the kids!
Michelle Fadelli, Direct Appeal Chair
