5/2: Big Payback Roundup

The Big Payback is celebrating it’s fifth birthday this year, and we have a feeling this year’s event is going to be bigger than ever. This year’s fundraiser kicks off Wednesday, May 2 at 12:00 am, and runs until 11:59 that night. In those twenty four hours, local nonprofit groups in Middle Tennessee will try and raise as much money as possible.

In the past four years, The Big Payback has resulted in over $9 million raised for more than 750 nonprofits organizations, including schools. Once the clock strikes midnight, donations can be made at TheBigPayback.org, and nonprofits are searchable by name, county, or issue area/cause.

There are quite literally too many outstanding non profits (891 to be exact) to mention in this newsletter blurb, but here are a few we would like to shout out:
