The Big Give S.A. makes nonprofits feel like they won the lottery

The day after the largest Powerball drawing in history, the thought of 1.5 billion dollars in the bank account (before taxes, of course) has made people stop and think about what they would do with all of that money. Some say they would help out family members, pay bills, take a vacation and give to a charity, but other Americans, according to a survey by Coupon Cabin, would spend their lotto winnings on a grand piano and get a personal stylist after getting a divorce.

Bottom line is money makes people either really generous or really crazy.

Chances are (unless you live in Chino Hills) you’re not a new millionaire, and now you’re showing up at work today like the rest of us. But even though you didn’t win the lottery today, there are hundreds of nonprofits throughout the San Antonio area who feel like they just did.

The Big Give S.A. connects people with local causes that matter to their community. Last year, San Antonio and surrounding areas raised $4.3 million for 882 charities in 24 hours. That proves you don’t need to be a Rockefeller to help a fella!

Givers can donate to any number of charities, from education to social justice to faith-based nonprofits

On May 3, 2016, anyone with a giving spirit in 14 counties surrounding San Antonio can go online and donate to his or her favorite area charity. For non-profit organizations that would like to take part in The Big Give, simply register at www.TheBigGiveSA.org to be part of the special day. You may not have won millions today, but collectively, San Antonio and surrounding communities will have the opportunity to raise millions – and help make their cities better places to live.

Kind of makes you feel like you just hit the jackpot, doesn’t it?
