Have you heard of community-giving days? It’s where a city encourages the community to donate to charities in their area over a set period of time. Located in Austin, Texas, TCFV is participating in the Amplify Austin community giving day on March 4-5, 2013.

We want YOU to join with us and help us crank up the giving for the Texas Council on Family Violence. 

Even if you are not from the Austin area, you can still help TCFV by making a monetary donation through Amplify Austin to show your support.

Here’s how you can help!

Donate

Make a donation through the Amplify Austin webpage beginning at 7pm on March 4, 2013 through 7pm on March 5, 2013. The minimum gift of $25 will help TCFV continue our mission of promoting safe and healthy relationships by supporting service providers, facilitating strategic prevention efforts, and creating opportunities for freed from domestic violence.

Tweet or Post

You can share your support and encourage your friends, family and coworkers to donate by tweeting or posting a message on Facebook or on your blog. Need help? Follow us on Twitter and Facebook and we’ll be sending out messages that you can Retweet and Share. Tweet with #AmplifyATX.
