We need your help for better bus and streetcar service!
May 3 is GiveNOLA Day and we have set a goal to raise $5,000 to support our 2016 work for quality NOLA transit.
Will you pledge right now to give $250, $100, $40, or whatever you can afford on May 3?
What is GiveNOLA Day?
GiveNOLA Day is a 24 hour online giving event, sponsored by the Greater New Orleans Foundation. The idea is to help advocacy and education groups like Ride New Orleans raise all-important individual contributions by creating a buzz around donating during one 24-hour period. It’s been a big boost in the past and we’re excited about to participate again this year!
Best of all, if you donate at any point on GiveNOLA Day – between 12:00 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on May 3 – you will put Ride New Orleans in the running for additional prizes and matches from the Greater New Orleans Foundation. That means your donation could have even more impact!
We’ve got a whole lot planned for 2016 and, as the new Executive Director, I can’t wait to work with many of you as we jointly organize for faster, more reliable, more convenient, and more comfortable transit service.
But we can’t do that without your help. So, if you are able, please consider making a donation on Tuesday, May 3 – GiveNOLA Day!
Thanks for everything that you do,
Ride New Orleans
PS: Whether you are able to donate on GiveNOLA Day or not, we hope you can attend our GiveNOLA Day open house starting at 5 p.m at our offices at 2100 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard. We’ll have drinks, food, and I would love the chance to meet you! Please email me back if you think you can make it.
