Spring2ACTion 2012, Our Biggest ACTion of the Year!

One City.  One Day.  One Opportunity.

What if we all gave one one day?

ACTion Alexandria's biggest action of the year, Spring2ACTion, begins at midnight on May 2, and we urge you to help us make it a record breaker. Last year, we all worked together to raise $104,000. This year, our goal is to help local nonprofits raise $200,000 in just 24 hours!

It's a big goal, but we think our nonprofits are worth it. They play a key role in improving the quality of life for all of us as you've seen throughout the year at ACTion. Alexandria nonprofits:

  • Help keep our children safe and healthy
  • Provide shelter to our homeless and then teach them how to transition to independence
  • Help build new playgrounds for our children and spruce up older playgrounds
  • Help feed our hungry
  • Help our school children succeed through after school programs
  • Help bring world class arts and culture to our city.
  • Mobilize thousands of volunteers each year who help them do all of these things for very little cost.

As you make your way through our city today, I urge you think about what you love most about it. Chances are, an Alexandria nonprofit might have something to do with it.

Spring2ACTion is one day for us to say thanks and support our amazing nonprofits.

A $10 donation is all it takes to make a big difference!

Be civic. Be generous. Be Alexandria!
