Amplify Austin - Call for Donations!
What is Amplify Austin?
Inspired by successful giving day events in other states, Amplify Austin believes in amplifying the power of your generosity! Debuted in 2013, Amplify Austin is a 24-hour "festival of giving" on March 20-21 that provides an easy and fun way for our entire community to give together and help hundreds of nonprofits that are meeting critical needs.
Why support recycling organizations like STAR?
Paige, 2nd Grader at Snyder Elementary and recipient of a STAR Bin Grant, says 'If you don't recycle, you will lose energy resources. How our school recycles: most teachers and the office recycle and reuse paper. Our cafeteria and janitors recycle cardboard. We also recycle lots of water bottles.'
Maia Corbitt, Executive Director of STAR, says 'Recycling is the cheapest, easiest and most readily available way to save the world - both economically and environmentally. By increasing recycling rates we are able to make Texas an even better place.'
There are three ways you can help STAR in its mission to increase recycling rates in Texas:
- Donate: Click the green "Donate Now" button on the STAR profile page just under our name. If you want to donate before March 20, check the box "Schedule for Amplify Austin Day" so your donation qualifies for a boost from the incentive pool! The incentive pool is raised by Amplify Austin to reduce, if not eliminate, all of our participation fees. Last year every dollar donated was actually worth $1.07. You can also choose to give on a recurring basis!
- Help spread the word! Continue advocating for STAR by reaching out to your personal network of potential donors via email and social media. Social media tips can be found here.
