Amplify Austin GraphicTreeFolks is thrilled to participate in Amplify Austin 2014 – a city-wide giving day that offers a fun, exciting, and incentivized way of giving to causes you care about. Please help us continue our work in the community by showing your generosity on March 20-21 during the 24-hours of giving. You can set a calendar reminder now that at 6pm on March 20th you have 24-hours to give back where it counts. Or forget about a calendar reminder and schedule your donation today. Set-it and forget it, and still be part of this exciting effort to raise funds for TreeFolks and the more than 400 participating Austin non-profits on March 20-21st.

6. Once all information is uploaded, click Submit Fundraiser for Approval.
7. Your profile must be approved by our organization before it is active to start sharing with your friends.
8. Your fundraiser profile, once approved, you will get a confirmation email.
