Only 6 more days until Sacramento's "Big Day of Giving", to benefit The GreenHouse and 400 other local non-profits in the region.  You've heard the radio announcements, you seen the advertisements, all that's left is to GIVE where your heart is on May 6th!

Why give to The GreenHouse on May 6th? 
The GreenHouse is making long-term impacts on under-resourced youth and families in North Sacramento. One GreenHouse partner recently said after an onsite visit, "You guys are completely changing the trajectory of these kids lives."  This entire community is being transformed, one life at a time.

Why else?
Every gift you give on May 6th will be matched by a pool of local and national donors - maximizing your impact for a cause you care about.  Whether it's $25 or $2500, your donation helps us expand our reach to serve more youth and more families - and it's matched giving! (pro-rated match, based on total donation amounts)

How to give on May 6th?
On May 6th, starting at 12:00 am midnight and for a 24-hour period, you can visit and make a donation on The GreenHouse' special donation page.  Special cash prizes of $2500 and $1500 are given to organizations that raise the most from 9-10 am and 12-1 pm; so start your morning with a donation to The GreenHouse and get us on the "leaderboard" to increase our visibility to new donors!

How else can I help?
Please consider forwarding this email to your networks as a way to spread the word through social media.  This is a regional effort to boost philanthropy, especially among new donors, with an ambitious goal to raise $1 million for local non-profits and to engage a total of 5,000 donors.  Pass it along!

If you've been waiting for a good time to make a big or small donation to The GreenHouse, May 6th could be your day!  Give where your heart is!  Find out more at   Thank you!

Baruwk, Bilal, Alex, and Noe went with Pastor Dave Lindner to a River Cats game last night.
RSVP Deadline is Friday May 9th! 
Come Join the Celebration!

Fly-fishing trips, wine packages, sports tickets, spa and beauty salon deals, wakeboarding lessons, airline tickets, delicious cakes, Tahoe cabin raffle, and more - - all up for grabs to help out The GreenHouse's youth programs.  Hear stories of life change and long-term impact and enjoy catering by Evan's Kitchen in East Sacramento.  Don't miss out!
