What is Georgia Gives Day?
Every year, there seems to be another national something that appears out of nowhere. National Pancake Day. National Hula Hoop Day. National Broken Umbrella Day. These days cause generations to close social gaps as participation blooms while stirring up social media frenzies.
Georgia Gives Day is different.
Unlike any other officially unofficial day, Georgia Gives Day has a definite connection to every Georgian—whether they know it or not.
Hospitals, churches, schools and day care centers are just a few nonprofits that have made an impact on every Georgians life.
On November 17, Georgia Gives Day is an online fundraising campaign that promotes giving and the support of nonprofits for 24 hours, in order to further the success of their missions in the community—a push day if you will.
Why Support Local Wishes?
This year on Georgia Gives Day you have the opportunity to become a #Wishmaker by giving a child a chance to have their wish come true.
All of the wishes we grant are to Georgia children and all of the funds come from Georgia donors. Over 82% of every dollar spent goes directly towards wish granting.
By supporting Make-A-Wish Georgia on Georgia Gives Day, you are directly impacting the lives of sick children in your community.
