September 19 is North Texas Giving Day; tradition now in its 5th year, and raised over $14 million last year for 1,000 area charities.
"On Thursday, you can donate to one or more of your favorite local charities and they will get even more. North Texas Giving Day, set aside by the Communities Foundation of Texas, will bring millions into the coffers of 1,000 area charities through an online donation platform. The foundation matches donations with money previously raised." -- Teresa McUsic, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram
