The Story: The Denver Rescue Mission provides Thanksgiving Dinner for thousands of homeless and poor individuals and families each year. This year they’ve had requests for 18,000 turkeys … but have only had 270 donated so far!
The StartUp Community of Colorado has decided to see if we can raise funds to get them 10,000 Turkeys in 7 Days!
More about the Mission and its Turkey Drive here: http://www.denverrescuemission.org/turkey.
UPDATE SUNDAY NOV 18: WE DID IT! #10000TURKEYS , 5 DAYS. So proud of everyone!
Now, let's win Martha Stewart's contest! If this site is one of the top three sites by Nov 26, @marthastewart will kick in $10k to $25k more for Denver Rescue!
There were requests for 18,500 turkeys this year -- and it's starting to get cold. Let's keep on this and do all we can through Nov 26!!
+Click DONATE on this page! Every $10 buys a Turkey. Donate as much as you can! Many of the companies associated with this effort have committed to match the first 50 Turkeys their employees donate to fund (FullContact, PaySimple, Newsgator, Galvanize, Gooley Law Firm, iTriage, MyFairElection; many many more!). All donations are tax-deductible.
+Share this link with family, friends, everyone you know and help us win the Martha Stewart contest! Wouldn’t it be awesome to generate $25,000 for the Rescue Mission on top of 10,000 Turkeys!
