Today is that one day out of the year when the community joins together to celebrate and support the work of nonprofits through www.DoMore24.org. How effective is the campaign? Last year, 11,000 donors gave $1.1 million dollars in 24 hours.
Chances are you’ll find your favorite theatre companies on the list, many of them letting you in on how your dollars might be used. For example, $24 gets one more umbrella for Singin’ in the Rain at Adventure Theatre: $48 could buy a piece of furniture on a WSC Avant Bard set – “our actors get tired of standing,” they say, or could give a scholarship so that a child can attend dance class at Synetic Theater.
On the list of participating nonprofits we found:
Faction of Fools
WSC Avant Bard
Young Playwrights Theatre
You have until midnight tonight to pitch in and help DC area nonprofits. Simply go t0 www.DoMore24.org, choose your favorite nonprofits and donate. It’s simple. You’ll feel good on this rainy day.
