It takes just five minutes to make a nomination, but the impact can last a lifetime. That’s what John Gallina and Dale Beatty of Purple Heart Homes say of Walmart’s “12 Days of Giving” Facebook program.
The organization was one of 5,400 nonprofits nominated and one of 145 selected in last year’s “12 Days of Giving” campaign.
Each of the “12 Days” will focus on a different giving theme, including hunger, military assistance and disaster relief.
Through Nov. 18, users can visit the Live Better tab on Walmart’s Facebook page to nominate a nonprofit providing basic needs in their communities. Here’s how it works:
Visitors nominate local organizations by submitting a 200-word description, including the nonprofit’s impact in its local community.
A panel from Walmart will review submissions and select the winners.
Grant recipients will be announced daily on Facebook and Twitter from Dec. 10 to Dec. 21.
During the 2012 “12 Days of Giving” campaign, Walmart is providing a total of $1.5 million in grants to benefit local communities across the country. For more information, visit www.walmartfoundation.org.
