For the past several years, area charities in several of the large Nebraska towns/cities have set aside one calendar day.  Local cities encourage people to support those who are making a difference.  Today (May 28th) is Lincoln’s Day.  This year 327 local charities are involved.  The biggest challenge of the day can be determining which great cause to support. Give Lincoln Day May!

On this blog, I have written about several of the organizations that are participating today.  This is not a specific endorsement.  Honestly there really are SO many great places to support. But I thought I would at least highlight some of these organizations that are making a difference in the Nebraska’s Capital City.
