Tampa, FL 4/28/16 – Mama Africana is proud to be participating in the third annual Give Day Tampa Bay on May 3, 2016, and we are encouraging residents to donate to us in our efforts to empower Black girls in their ethnic identity and relationship with Jesus.
 
All money raised on this day will stay in the Tampa Bay community.
 
Give Day Tampa Bay is a 24-hour, online giving event, designed to increase philanthropy in the Tampa Bay area and raise awareness of the amazing work local nonprofits do in this community. This is the third year that the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay has sponsored this event, which raised $1.75 million for 550 Tampa Bay area nonprofits last year. 

In addition to raising awareness of the participating nonprofits, Give Day Tampa Bay offers cash prizes to the participants with the most donations, another reason to give on May 3.

“We are excited to be participating in our first Give Day Tampa Bay event because we have heard from numerous nonprofits about how beneficial it was to them and their fundraising efforts,” said, Evelyn Sekajipo, Mama Africana Executive Director. "We hope to raise $5000, which will help us tremendously in our work. We also hope to win one of the many cash prizes in the prize pool.”
 
To increase awareness of our organization, we are will participate in a radio interview with WEDU, so listen out for us. 
It’s so simple to give during Give Day Tampa Bay. Simply visit www.GiveDay.org on May 3, 2016 and find Mama Africana in the list of participating organizations. All donations made are tax-deductible and will remain here in the Tampa Bay area.
