    I just wanted to thank you for letting me know about and getting me to the CAN DO program. My husband and I had a great time. We learned so many things and enjoyed the activities, meeting the people and chatting with experts. I will never forget it and hope to get to it again some day. I enjoyed a nice day recently with a bike ride (with training wheels).

    Can Do MS Participates in Colorado Gives Day Dec. 8, 2010

    Posted Friday, November 12, 2010

    Edwards, Colo. - Can Do MS is chosen to be one of hundreds of Colorado nonprofits that will participate in Colorado Gives Day Dec. 8, 2010. Colorado Gives Day is an initiative to increase philanthropy in Colorado through online giving, presented by Community First Foundation and FirstBank.

    Colorado Gives Day will take place during a 24-hour period on Dec. 8, 2010. Donations to Colorado charities will be accepted through the website GivingFirst.org, Community First Foundation’s online giving resource, with a goal of raising $1 million in one day.

    Details of the partnership between Community First Foundation and FirstBank include a $300,000 commitment from the Colorado-based, employee-owned bank. $250,000 of this commitment will be used as a lead gift for the Colorado Gives Day Incentive Fund. This special fund will be grown by additional contributions from local businesses proportionally allocated across all donations made on Colorado Gives Day, thus increasing the value of each individual gift. In addition, FirstBank has committed $50,000 towards off-setting the cost of credit card and processing fees associated with donations made on Dec. 8, helping to make this a no-cost initiative for participating nonprofits.
