The New Year is rolling in and what a year it's been! With over $2,000,000 dollars raised to help kids play sports, athletes get to the olympics, schools raise money, and hospitals acquire new equipment, we are truly in awe of all of the teams and organizations who have used FlipGive this year. Check out this year's top fundraisers, and find out how they made the most of their year!
Gage Sales has made the US National Football team and he cannot even begin to tell you how excited he is! He lives and breathes football and truly loves this sport and to make this team is a huge honor for him. He's had the support of so many family, friends and his school which has been very touching. The funds will be used for travel expenses as we embark from Indiana to Texas and stay for an entire week. We couldn't have done it without the help of FlipGive!
