BikeTexas had a special opportunity March 20-21 to participate a 24-hour fundraiser called AmplifyATX. Over 400 nonprofits in the Austin area came together to benefit great causes and build excitement about giving.
Thanks to generous sponsors, bonus prizes were available for nonprofits who had the most donations in an hour, the most donations overall, and so on. Despite so many of our followers joining in, BikeTexas was edged out by another worthy group for an hourly prize.
However, we’re still happy with how the day went: 46 different donors, many of them first-time BikeTexas supporters, donated nearly $1500 towards BikeTexas’ education programs. That’s enough to keep our confidence-boosting KidsKup program rolling through 2014, giving more kids a chance to learn a fun and healthy skill that will stay with them for life.
We also put together a fun Top 10 list of great reasons to Amplify: check it out here. Thank you for Amplifying Texas with BikeTexas!
