Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- You can make a difference for charities across the Midlands Tuesday through Midlands Gives, a 24-hour online giving campaign.

The goal is to not only help local non-profit organizations raise funds, but to also draw in new donors and build their capabilities for online fundraising.

"Everyone can be a philanthropist," said JoAnn Turnquist, President and CEO of Central Carolina Community Foundation.

Turnquist says more than 150 organizations are participating in the event. Donors must give a minimum donation of $20.

Throughout the day, this special event will allow the non-profits to raise additional money in addition to donations from the community.

To make a donation, log onto MidlandsGives.org.
