“Awesome! That would be helpful,” says Program and Events Manager Sara Rucker of Texas Folklife’s staff. She’s fielding last minute calls from friends asking about last minute contributions to help reach today’s fundraising goal of $6,000 through Amplify Austin’s 24-hour giving marathon.
“I don’t recognize the names of some of these donors. That’s great,” muses Executive Director Cristina Balli. “We’re making new friends!”
Sarah and Cristina are glued to their screens posting updates to their Facebook pages and sending update emails to supporters.
You still have time to give!
