Spring2ACTion has moved up to April 15.

At this time, our community needs you more than ever. During this Spring2ACTion we would like to do our little part to help. This year, we are sponsoring FOUR $500 prizes – two from Red Barn Mercantile and two from Penny Post.

On April 15 Red Barn Mercantile and Penny Post will give $500 to the charity that receives the most online designations for Penny Post and $500 to the charity that receives the most online designations for Red Barn Mercantile. We will also give a $500 prize to the organization with a Red Barn Mercantile designation who raises the most dollars and $500 to the organization with a Penny Post designation who raises the most dollars.

To do that, every time your donors give to your non-profit have them simply designate Red Barn Mercantile or Penny Post. There will be a drop-down menu at checkout to make it easy. You just need to make sure they know what to do and how to do it. The prize money will be paid out online just after 10:00 pm and will go toward your Spring2ACTion totals.

In addition to these prizes, we will be making online donations of 20% of all your supporters’ Good. Works. Wednesday purchases that day. While our doors are closed to the general public, we are still operating online at redbarnmercantile.com and shoppennypost.com. All your donor needs to do is fill in the notes section with your organization’s name upon checkout. It’s as simple as that. So encourage your donors to do a little shopping for your cause and we will add to your Spring2ACTion totals!

Last year, Alexandrians and their friends and family donated more than $2 million during Spring2ACTion. Never before have we needed the level of fundraising that we do now. We love this community and are ready to step up and do our part.

Thank you and stay safe,
