Five Acres is participating in #GivingTuesday, a global day for people to give back, usually by donating to their favorite nonprofits! Our goal is to raise $10,000 by #GivingTuesday, December 2 to buy 20 computers for the Five Acres Therapeutic School.
Our Therapeutic School serves 80 children in grades K-10 with special needs and learning disabilities. We have computers that are 11 years old and use the XP operating system which Microsoft no longer supports, so they need to be replaced.
Wells Fargo has generously offered to match every gift dollar for dollar up to $10,000 for our #GivingTuesday challenge! With Wells Fargo’s match, your gift is DOUBLED and your $25 becomes $50, your $100 becomes $200, or your $500 becomes $1,000 (and buys 1 computer!)
Please join us in this effort! You can help us by (1) donating, (2) starting your own Crowdrise fundraiser on this page and asking your network to support, (3) advocating by telling your friends about this project or posting an #UNselfie, or (4) volunteering as a Social Media Ambassador to help us promote this #GivingTuesday challenge on social media!

Every child deserves access to the tools they need to succeed – we thank you for your support!
Please contact Lara at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering.
