    ‘Tis the season for supporting worthy nonprofits! With that in mind, I am fundraising for Horizon’s Little Points of Light program as part of this year’s Colorado Gives Day! All donations made on line Tuesday are matched by business and philanthropic organizations across the state.

    If you don't know by now, Horizons is the organization I work for. We provide services of all kinds to children and adults with developmental disabilities. My goal is $500. It's not alot, but it is attainable.

    Horizons' Little Points of Light campaign raises money to help children with developmental delays and disabilities get the services they need and reduces the financial and emotional stress of caring for a family member with a developmental disability.

    To learn more about the program and make a donation, please click here: https://www.coloradogives.org/little_points_of_light

    Please don’t hesitate to p.m. me with any questions about this fundraising effort, the Colorado Day of Giving event or Horizons Specialized Services.

    Thank you for your consideration!

    My birthday is coming up, and I like to celebrate in unexpected ways, at times...

    I see this:
    Select "CO Gives Day" on the next page to have your donation count toward local and statewide incentives.

    but I don't see it on the next page?

    Is there something special I'm supposed to be doing for the above?

    I didn't see a Paypal option. They need one. Bit of a pain in the arse to put credit card info in. But I did it for the kids.

    Glad to see we beat your goal. Still about 25 minutes left for anyone still wanting to donate.
