United Way's 'Great Give' hopes to raise millions for charity

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Tuesday is the first-ever Great Give in Palm Beach and Martin counties, a 24-hour online crowdfunding event aimed at helping more than 300 local charities.

You can show your support by making a donation of $10 or more directly to United Way by clicking here or calling 1-844-GIVE-DAY.

Many of the donations will be matched by donors in the area. You can also help by tweeting #GreatGive on your non-profit's Twitter page. The organization with the most tweets gets a bonus.

The public is asked to make a minimum donation of $10.  The money will pay for services in your neighborhood.

While it mostly takes place online, The Community Foundation's downtown West Palm Beach building will also have a Giving Lounge with lots of activities. Other events will be taking place at places like Palm Beach Outlets and Kapow! Noodle Bar in Boca Raton.

A similar fundraiser in Miami raised $3.2 million. Palm Beach and Martin counties are hoping to exceed that figure on Tuesday.
