The Northern Piedmont Community Foundation organizes the 24-hour online blitz that encourages participating organizations to spread the word and to encourage competition among donors.

The Warrenton-based PATH Foundation again this year will provide a $100,000 bonus pool, shared among participating organizations.
This year, citizens can choose to donate to 156 participating organizations.
