That was the "Good" part, connecting with fellow Atlantans - our neighbors. Then came the "Do." In the issues's intro, our fearless leader, Debbie Michaud breaks it down:
Here's how it works: CL will help community organizations raise up to $2,500 through 30-day online fundraisers. Campaign sponsor The Home Depot Foundation will match contributions dollar for dollar (that's a potential budget of $5,000) to make the projects become realities. The Home Depot Foundation normally focuses on veterans' issues, but when we explained the Do Good Campaign, the organization signed on to sponsor not one, but 12 projects at $2,500 each.
We started with three projects: a historic restoration at Oakland Cemetery in Grant Park; an arts-based anti-litter campaign in Capitol View/Capitol View Manor; and a memorial park dedicated to late community activist Marie Cowser in Old Fourth Ward.
Fundraising began March 28 and runs through April 27 at clatl.com/DoGood. All participating organizations are 501c3 nonprofits, so that means your contributions are tax-deductible. In a lot of cases, projects need manpower as much as money, so volunteering to support any of these projects is just as valuable.
There are several ways to get involved with CL's Do Good Project: you can donate time, money, or even nominate a project you believe in. Ready, Set, Do Good, ATL.
