Give to the Max Day Brings Oodles of Fun

Give to the Max Day, Thursday, November 15th. Bring Oodles of Fun to everyone.

Thursday, November 15, is Give to the Max Day — it is a day for Minnesotans to come together to raise as much money as possible in 24 hours for nonprofits in MN.

Last year over $13 million was raised to benefit MN nonprofit organizations with a record 47,534 donors!

This Give to the Max Day, the Madison Claire Foundation is working towards the purchase of an Oodle Swing for Madison’s Place Playground.

The Oodle Swing provides interactive fun for up to six kids, regardless of disability. The Oodle Swing fosters a sense of cooperative and social play that is important on a playground. With a transfer point from wheelchair or walker, children with mobility impairments can transfer in and out of a wheel chair or from a walker onto this swing for oodles of fun!

Kids deserve a place to play, to be outdoors, to hang out with their brothers and sisters and to make new friends. And parents want the chance to play with, and to supervise their kids in a traditional playground setting, even if they themselves have limited mobility. Madison’s Place is a playground for every family. As a community build effort, situated in a public park, we can ensure that every family will be able to enjoy the playground!

So what are you waiting for? Make a difference on November 15th. You can schedule your donation right now or donate during Give to the Max Day. Top organizations receive bonus dollars when YOU donate! This means MCF become eligible for a Golden Ticket: $1,000 all because of you!
