ODMP is participating in the CrowdRise Giving Tower Holiday Challenge, an annual fundraising competition that runs from November 24th through January 7th and raises millions of dollars for charity.

Participating organizations rally supporters to raise as much as possible for their cause. Every charity keeps the money they raise and the organizations that raise the most receive prizes ranging from $25,000 to $100,000. The Challenge goes through the entire holiday season, including #GivingTuesday, and is designed to help organizations of all sizes gain awareness, recognition, and money for their cause.
