I'm volunteering with the group that is planning this and it should be a great event! Here's a request for volunteers from their volunteer coordinator:
Are you interested in maximizing your time and volunteer effort for hundreds of great causes all at once? Then get involved with GiveMN's "Give to the Max Day 2010" on Tuesday, November 16th from 8 a.m. to midnight! http://givemn.razoo.com/p/gtmd
Last year, more than 38,000 donors raised $14 million for 3,434 nonprofit organizations throughout Minnesota in just one day! These organizations provide critical services for our state, including feeding our hungry, sheltering our homeless, assisting our elderly, nurturing our youth, improving our welfare, maintaining our heritage, and protecting our environment.
This year GiveMN has teamed up with The UpTake http://theuptake.org/ to promote nonprofit and individual giving LIVE online! Representatives from more than 80 organizations from all over the state will educate viewers about their nonprofit mission and encourage Minnesotans to give to their favorite causes through an all-day, live-stream event.
This year’s LIVE Internet broadcast is critical to the success of Give to the Max Day. But, it’s also an extremely large undertaking. That’s why we need your help!
Volunteers are needed to:
--greet and register the nonprofits as they arrive for their online appearance;
--staff the hospitality area and assist with food and beverage needs;
--help prepare nonprofit representatives to appear live on camera;
--run any last minute errands that may come up during the day;
--help set up the day before and take down the day after the event.
We are looking for 60+ volunteers for 3-5 hour time slots starting at 7:30 a.m. until just after midnight. Volunteers are the key to any successful charity event, so please consider lending a hand!
For more information about how you can get involved contact Carin Skoog at email@example.com or 612-619-7385. Please leave a message with your name and contact information and we'll get back with you shortly!
