Billings, Mont.–Did you know there is over 60 nonprofits in Yellowstone County alone? The Billings Community Foundation, a nonprofit organization itself, wants to create a culture of giving in this area by heading up the event, Give Local.

Give Local America is a nation wide event May 3, designed for hometown causes, bringing awareness and putting donor dollars toward making change in their community. It's been described as a modern day 24-hour telethon. Instead of calling in to donate, people can logon to donate.

From 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. May 3 on the Give Local Yellowstone Valley Region website anyone with an internet connection can donate to their favorite charities in the Billings area. Three businesses downtown are hosting live events that day. Share camaraderie and inspire others to get involved with giving back.

It only makes sense to start event how most people start their day, with coffee! Rock Creek Roasters kicks it off with caffeine at midnight. Fun activities and special deals in the wee hours of the morning will hopefully rake in the money for the participating charities.

At 1 p.m. things shift to Thirsty Street Brewing company for and afternoon of drinking and donating. The organizers of Give Local Yellowstone encourage participants to share their experience on social media using #yellgivelocalBy making it interactive, and fun the goal is make giving to local charities a habit for the younger generation. Listen for live radio broadcasts and look for media coverage all day.

For the final leg Hooligans hosts from 8 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. Every hour for the 24 hours, someone lucky will win a prize. The 'once around the clock' prizes are from the generous sponsors. Dress up,dance and donate to DJ Land Party that night. Live coverage of how much has been donated to each nonprofit will be on the Give Local Yellowstone website to spark friendly competition.

Be a part of something that improves the community. Give Local May 3rd Yellowstone Valley Region!
