It is almost here — a break in the clouds after a stormy day — The Amazing Give, a 24-hour fundraising blitz. The idea is to use the power of crowd sourcing to gather donations of all sizes to help 85 nonprofits that focus on issues like mental health, education, animal services and children’s services.
In the Amazing Give’s first year, 60 nonprofits raised $288,000. Last year, 75 organizations raised $850,000. Organizers at the Community Foundation of North Central Florida have their eyes set on $1 million for this year.
