#GiveBigDFW 2018

Organized by United Way of Metropolitan Dallas (UWMD), #GiveBigDFW occurred on November 27, 2018, to coincide with #GivingTuesday.

Over $33 million was raised to support the Dallas Fort Worth area! Community members were encouraged to “Give from the Heart” and get involved on this special day. With over 18k volunteer hours logged they clearly rose to the task.

Downloadable graphics were provided, for participating organization to utilize to promote their campaigns, via #GiveBigDFW’s Nonprofit Toolkit, including this GIF.

The #GiveBigDFW team is so much fun to work with! Their devotion to supporting the work of their United Way and local nonprofits is commendable. They are passionate about bringing people together to improve the lives of those living in the Dallas Fort Worth area. I deeply appreciated learning about their important work and the incredible partnerships they have within their community.
