Non-Profits Gather Together for Giving Hearts Day

Posted: Updated:

A minor disruption doesn't keep people from giving back to the community.

A water main break at the Ramada closed bathrooms, but hearts remain open.


"It's exciting. It adds a whole new dimension. People come in and they are here participating despite all of the problems," said George Kaiser

25 local non-profits gather together for Giving Hearts Day -- a state wide 24 hour online day of giving.

For three years charities in the Bismarck-Mandan area have participated.

And the Central Dakota Children's Choir is honored to take part each year.

"I take a lot of pride in what our organization does. It's really nice to be spotlighted among those 200 organizations on a specific day and have a lot of focus made on donations," said Karen Traeholt, CDCC executive director.

Dairy Queen teamed up with Traeholt to donate a blizzard to the choir for every $25 donation received.

Supporters of the event will also be matching donations for each organization.

"It just highlights to us again the wonderful thing that non-profits do in our state of North Dakota, not only here but across the state," said First Lady Betsy Dalrymple.

Participants keep their spirits high and hope to double donations from last year...despite the slight inconvenience.

Donations are accepted online at until 1am central time.
