On Thanksgiving, FIRE President Greg Lukianoff promised to match up to $1,000 in donations to FIRE given through Twitter. Through the Give a Tweet campaign, FIRE is not only raising money but also expanding our base of supporters to include people who wouldn’t otherwise know about FIRE. This great social networking tool enables FIRE (and you, too) to reach an unprecedented number of people with our message: Let Freedom Ring on Campus!
Also joining Greg as a matcher on Twitter is FIRE Board member, former editor-at-large of Reason magazine, and noted author Virginia Postrel. Virginia pledged to personally match up to $500 in gifts given to FIRE through Give a Tweet. Thank you, Virginia!
Because of their generous commitments—plus the FIRE fans who have pledged their own support over the past week—FIRE is currently the top charity on Give a Tweet. We are very thankful for Greg and Virginia’s generosity, but now it’s time to turn their pledges into donations by giving them something to match. You can help us take advantage of this opportunity by participating in the campaign today!
Don’t forget our newest online promotion: With a donation of $15 or more, we will send you a cool FIRE T-shirt.
If you don’t currently "Tweet" but still wish to donate to FIRE, you can do so here.
