Newsletter Ask: CASA needs YOU during the Big Give on May 4th!

The Big Give S.A. is right around the corner!

If you haven’t heard of the Big Give, it is a 24-hour day of giving on May 4th where CASA works towards connecting community members to our mission and the vital work we do by spreading awareness and online donations through social media – last year we raised over $18,000 in just 24 hours! This year we have a goal of raising $20,000 for the abused and neglected children of San Antonio and Bexar County. We need you to help make this happen!

Your help this year is crucial to meeting our goal of raising $20,000 in 24 hours. Can’t give on May 4th this year? No problem. The Big Give website will open one week before (on April 27). For the first time this year, donors will be able to make gifts early to their nonprofits through the Big Give. By giving early, you won't have to worry about missing the big day. From April 27 and on, you can give early, but you cannot pre-schedule your gift for a particular time on May 4. As soon as you choose to give, your donation will go through.

On May 4th, you can help us make this the most successful Big Give SA yet by becoming a Big Give CASA Ambassador. A Big Give CASA Ambassador is a vital partner during the Big Give, joining in on this fun day.

A Big Give CASA Ambassador will commit to “liking” and “sharing” CASA media posts across Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn to help spread awareness of how to give during the Big Give. We are also asking that you forward our CASA email to your friends/family the day of the event.  In addition, on May 4th, we ask that you choose at least one of the following options:

  • Text friends the Big Give – CASA link to direct them to give
  • Bring your friends to the CASA Big Give Thirsty Thursday event at the CASA offices on May 4th from 11am-3pm for Smoothies, Food Trucks, and fun!
  • You take a photo with an “I GIVE TO CASA BECAUSE” sign wherever you are and post it on your social media with #BigGive2014 to help us go viral!

If you would like to sign up to be a Big Give CASA Ambassador in this exciting event, please contact Nina Ortega at by April 19th to join!
