What is The Amazing Give?
The Amazing Give will raise money for local nonprofits through a single online donation platform, providing a simple way to connect donors to the charitable causes they care about most and encourage them to take action.

The Amazing Give is on March 20 from 6pm to March 21 at 6pm. However, you can donate as early as March 11 to the nonprofit of your choice.
Why Donate to Dream on Purpose? According to a PR Newswire web article, “75% of girls with low self-esteem reported engaging in negative activities like cutting, bullying, smoking, drinking, or disordered eating.” However, Dream on Purpose has set out to change this status quo.
Since its inception in 2016, Dream on Purpose has touched the lives of nearly 500 youth, with numbers nearly doubling this past year. Its Cupcakes & Conversations have addressed mental health awareness, suicide prevention, college preparedness, money management, relationships and healthy dating practices, abuse and coping mechanisms, social etiquette and self-esteem. DOP partners with community agencies to host additional programming, such as wellness day, a career exploration and college preparedness showcase, a career preparedness workshop and interview-ready shopping spree, and monthly yoga sessions. Its most recent, notable achievement includes expanding into Ohio. However, none of this would have been possible without donors and supporters, like you!
