Valentine's Day is just over a week away, and for eight non-profit organizations that means the Annual Giving of Hearts-- a day anyone can donate to charitable causes in the area.
Members met to organize and gear up for February thirteenth, so that those opening their checkbooks can really make each donation count-- even Josh Duhamel has joined the effort.
(Lowell Latimer, Committee Member) "Well the public needs to know a couple of things. One of things they need to know is that if they give a ten dollar donation, it will doubled to make it twenty, and that all the donations are requested through online."
The only day the donations will be doubled is February 13-- any other day will strictly be the amount they entered in the website.
Chantelle Pepple says she hopes people will have a greater appreciation for what "this monster took from this world and my family."
