The Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement is participating in Fairfield County’s Giving Day on March 9 – and we have big plans! Help us reach out goal of $2,500.

Hosted by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation, Giving Day is a 24-hour online event to “Give Where You Live” and celebrate our work, and the work of all local nonprofits. We invite you to be a part of this fun, exiting event. Last year, $1.25 million was raised for 410 local nonprofits!

Not only will your gift help us reach our goal, but it may qualify us to win additional grant prizes. Gifts of any size can make a HUGE difference. (The minimum gift allowed is $10.) Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the loop as Giving Day draws near. Don’t forget to follow all of the action with #FairfieldCountyGives.
