The African Well Fund is hoping to win one of the daily prizes in America's Giving Challenge. To win, AWF must get the highest number of unique donations between 3 p.m. ET today, Oct. 22, and 2:59 p.m. ET tomorrow, Oct. 23, to its Facebook Causes page. The cause with the highest number of unique donations for the day will earn $1,000; the cause with the second-highest number of unique donations will earn $500.
You can help AWF win the daily challenge by making a minimum $10 donation and spreading the word to your family and friends through Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites today and tomorrow. Last week, 22 supporters donated $495 to AWF during the 24-hour challenge period and dozens more spread the word about the challenge online.
Supporters are limited to making one donation per day in the challenge. You don't have to belong to Facebook to make a donation.
AWF will be competing for the daily prize from Thursday at 3 p.m. ET to Friday at 2:59 p.m. Eastern time each week until America's Giving Challenge ends on Nov. 6. The cause that gets the highest number of unique donations during the course of the challenge will earn $50,000; $25,000 will be awarded to the cause who receives the second-highest number of donations. AWF currently ranks 131 out of the 6,195 causes entered in the challenge.
