Global Giving's Bonus Day Results
June 13, 2012 was a bonus giving day and we would like to thank you all for your generous support.
21 donors gave $2435 to Ocean Academy on June 13th. An additional $220 was donated from GlobalGiving's matching funds. Thank you. We learned two things from this fund-raising experience:
1) It is truly amazing what we can do in just one day by all working together!
2) Donating very early (actually - very late since the fundraiser starts just after midnight) is crucial in order to maximize the matching funds. You can see the full results at the link below.
