The Spirit of Giving is Worth Catching.
This year, CFLT is joining donors and nonprofits across Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties to participate in Give Local, our region’s annual celebration of local giving. Give Local is a chance for all of us to come together, give generously, and strengthen our communities by giving to the causes we love! Plus, every donation is boosted through fund provided by the Dawkins Charitable Trust, so your dollars do more to support the community you love. In addition, if you make a donation on the last Giving Wednesday, Nov. 17th, you will automatically be entered into a drawing to receive additional money to donate to the non-profit of your choice!
Therefore, your contributions ripple outward and have a greater impact to our Give Local fundraising campaign. Giving makes us happy. We all know it. When we give, to another person or to a cause we care about, it just feels good. Giving is good for our health, it decreases our stress to give back to our community whether it be financially, through volunteering, or various other ways it can help decrease our blood pressure by taking some of the the focus and pressure off ourselves and our own stressors. Giving promotes social connection by connecting us to like-minded individuals and organizations whose work we admire and care about! Its natural that giving often evokes gratitude for us, too, by shining a light on all the things that make our lives such a gift.
Your donations of any size makes a difference to our work. $40 can pay for a listing for a farmer. $100 can pay for an ad and a listing for a farmer. So Give a little. Give a Lot. And Give Local! Your generosity matters. Help spread a little giving spirit. Giving is contagious. Give Local provides an opportunity for us all to watch the spirit of giving ripple through our community. Give what you can and share about our work even more.
Thank you to everyone that has already donated to our Give Local Campaign this year!
