None of us know the day or the time. God speed Ofc. Charles. Thank you for your service - most people will never know how much you have given before this time - the hours... the sacrifices... the lives you have touched and changed. You will not be forgotten.

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.
