After a record-breaking Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's time to show the world what kind of impact America can make around the globe!!
This year, we're proud to be supporting more than 500 nonprofit organizations, helping to make their #GivingTuesday better than ever.
It's impossible to predict a natural disaster, and almost as hard to truly prepare for one. What really matters in a natural disaster isn't how prepared a city is before it hits, but the generosity of our nation in the aftermath.
Hurricane Harvey is a truly unprecedented weather event. It came with force, delivering sustained 100 mph winds, spitting off tornados, and dumping record-breaking torrents on Houston, our nation's fourth largest city.
Citizens have been doing the best they can to survive and adjust in the wake of the storm; however, many are still cut off from basic supplies - food, water, and electricity - and many more have found themselves suddenly and unexpectedly homeless, displaced, often with animals and children in tow.
We are so proud and so honored to be able to provide fundraising support to several organizations who are working hard, day in and day out, to provide relief to those affected by this storm.
From providing short term supplies, shelter, and search and rescue, to more long term efforts centered around re-homing and reacclimating to a life post-tragedy, our nonprofit partners are doing incredible and selfless work as we speak. Read on for more details on our partners helping in the Gulf.
Don’t drive distracted.

As we look to the future with bright eyes filled with hopes and dreams, our goal never changes: to attract as many loyal supporters as we can to your worthy cause.
There seems to be an infinite array of strategies, tools, and methods to go about what we’ve always done (or tried to do)… which is build meaningful relationships with real people.
It can seem a little daunting to make good use of all of these opportunities.
Rest assured, it’s actually easier than ever to connect with your donors, volunteers, and advocates with technology. What's more, everyone is online these days, which is why...
We always advocate community building as our #1 best practice, because it works!
This week, the Inspire Change Podcast hits the road, joining Andrea Viarrial-Murphy LIVE in the offices of Youth on Record. Andrea wears many hats at YOR, and she was kind enough to take some time out of her busy day to discuss the challenges that face a small, local nonprofit, elliciting support from your home city, planning and executing exciting events, and so much more.
Youth on Record has nearly 5x as many volunteers as they do staff, and Andrea has a ton of insight into how to find dedicated and hard-working volunteers. Listen in below, grab your notebook, and let's learn some new strategies!
