today is the start of 24 hours of
amplify austin
from 5pm today to 5pm tomorrow afternoon

the website
i live here i give here
is where you can go to donate to your favorite

i quickly skimmed the list of nonprofits to find the
ones that my wife she and i regularly donate to

Image result for alzheimer's association

alzheimers association
its interesting that its the only disease related non profit thats listed
they raise as much money that day as they do from one of their
look at the slide show and youll see a picture of
me doing my presentation at an alzheimers symposium

meals on wheels
these folks mostly but not always are elderly folks who only see
one person each day and thats the meals on wheels person
when i run my route each week i usually slow down and
spend time visiting with those who just want to visit

habitat for humanity
we donate some each year
but i mostly donate my time to this group
working several days on each build
also doing the landscape planning for each house build
haitat provides homes for folks who work hours to qualify
who actually pay for the houses themselves
albeit at zero interest and for only the material costs
of the build since most of the labor is donated

they still need money to keep the builds going
maybe some government programs should use this model

the amplify austin covers 7 counties around here
covers 27 categories
500+ nonprofits
they hope to raise $7,000,000 in that 24 hour period

heck use your tax refund if you have one to donate
i know when i write those checks
i feel good doing it
when i see the recipients  who receive the services
i feel even better

make yourself feel better
amplify your good will
