This Thursday is the 5th annual North Texas Giving Day, and its goal is to raise more than the $14.2 million it raised last year. Until midnight, you can make donations of $25 or more to more than 1,000 nonprofits on DonorBridgeTx.org. Donations will be amplified by extra donations/prizes from Donor Bridge. As of 9am, people have already donated more than $3.5 million
