Grab your wallet, open your heart and donate for North Texas Giving Day

WFAA's Cynthia Izaguirre explains which nonprofit is close to her heart and how you can help the community during North Texas Giving Day.

DALLAS -- Have you been wanting to give back to your community but you just didn't know how? Thursday is your day.

This is the eighth annual North Texas Giving Day and the organization is trying to set another national record this year exceeding last year's record-breaking $33.1 million.

So what is North Texas Giving Day?

It's an online giving event for people across the nation to come together and raise as much money as possible for North Texas non-profits in one day.

On Sept. 22 from 6 a.m. to midnight, grab your wallet and head over to the North Texas Giving Day website to make a donation to any of the 2,000 nonprofits participating. 

Anyone can donate -- businesses, foundations, funds or individuals can partake in the bonus fund pool. If you don't have a particular cause or non-profit you'd like to help, donating to the pool is an option. 

There's nothing like a little bit of competition, so be sure to check out the online leaderboard to track the progress of the non-profit you hold near and dear.

The cause doesn't stop online. There will also be free-to-the-public Donation Station events across North Texas:

  • NorthPark Center: Kids Give activities 
  • Levitt Pavillion: Arlington Gives! A free concert
  • Sundance Square: Activities, food trucks, prices and more
  • Denton Square on the Courthouse Green
  • Mitchell Park near downtown McKinney

Follow along with the conversation using the hashtag #NTGivingDay and be sure to tweet once you've made your donation!
