Give to the Max Day - Thursday, November 16
Minnesota is home to Give to the Max Day, a 24-hour online give-a-thon. Visit GiveMN.org on November 16 and give to the Minnesota Brain Injury Alliance to help us continue to change the lives of those affected by brain injury.

Your donation on Give to the Max Day also may help us receive an additional donation of $1,000. How? On November 16, every gift made on GiveMN.org will be entered into an hourly drawing for a $1,000 GiveMN Golden Ticket to be awarded to a nonprofit organization. That adds up to 24 opportunities for you to help us receive an extra $1,000!

Here's the really exciting part: At the end of Give to the Max Day, one donation made on GiveMN.org will be randomly selected to receive a $10,000 Super-Sized GiveMN Golden Ticket. The more gifts we generate on GiveMN.org on November 16, the more our chances increase to receive that additional $10,000 donation. Imagine what we could do with $10,000!
