Plenty of historical events have happened on August 15. In 1947, India became independent from British rule. In 1969, the Woodstock Music & Art Fair opened its doors to participants and spectators. In 1973, US involvement in Vietnam ended. Today, we’re adding one more observance to the list: the redesigned ColoradoGives.org is launched and ready for visitors!
The new, improved giving website is designed to make online giving easier and more fun! Of course, ColoradoGives.org will continue to provide comprehensive, objective and up-to-date information about Colorado nonprofits. But now, it also features fresh photos and graphics, improved functionality and donor-inspired navigation.
If you are a parent or grandparent, get together with the kiddos you care about and visit KidsforColoradoGives.org. The website is a kid-friendly component of ColoradoGives.org that connects the next generation of Colorado givers with local nonprofit organizations. At KidsforColoradoGives.org, young donors experience the joy of giving in a fun, safe environment.
I am sure August 15 will go down in history as the big day on which the new, improved ColoradoGives.org made its debut. However, if you are curious, the following other events are also being celebrated:
- Born on August 15 — Debra Messing, Julia Child and Napoleon
- It is National Lemon Meringue Pie Day, I love Cowboys and Cowgirls Day and National Relaxation Day
- August 15 is part of National Elvis Week, Feeding Pets of the Homeless Week, National Aviation Week and National Resurrect Romance Week
