Giving Challenge a way to throw nonprofits some support in trying times

There’s a very special day coming up this week — running from noon to noon April 28 to 29, and, no, it’s not a sporting event, as you should well know.

But it is something that many of us are living today with our friends and families and coworkers: it’s virtual.

It’s the Giving Challenge, an online event that Southwest Florida has used during the past six of these efforts since 2012 to demonstrate its enormous generosity to the tune of $40 million.
