Beginning at 7pm on March 4, 2013, Central Texans will be encouraged to hop on www.ilivehereigivehere.org and donate to their charity of choice from a list of local nonprofits which includes the DDCE’s Neighborhood Longhorns and Free Minds programs! Neighborhood Longhorns works with nearly 6,000 Title I students in AISD, providing mentoring, tutoring and incentives to improve academic success. Free Minds helps low-income adults jumpstart their college education through an innovative partnership between The University of Texas at Austin and Austin Community College. Your donation to these programs can make a difference in the educational attainment and quality of life for many in Austin!
Throughout the day randomly selected donors will win impromptu serenades from some of the city’s most cherished entertainers. Although only a handful of people can win the in-person performances, EVERYONE who donates will receive an e-tribute from a surprise musician too famous to mention. You’ll just have to wait and see once you do your part to Amplify Austin!
