A statewide day of giving to help Georgia's nonprofit organizations begins at the stroke of midnight tonight.

The Georgia Center for Nonprofits designated Dec. 6 as Georgia Gives Day, providing a "one-stop" website for online donations to benefit a wide range of charitable organizations in the state.

Lisa Gilbert, president of Central Georgia Cares, said the one-day event gives everyone a chance to be a philanthropist. CARES and its mascot, AC Pup, are calling for their supporters to join a "flashmob of giving" by donating to CARES during the event.

"A $10 donation will make an incredible difference," Gilbert said. "CARES and AC Pup work to promote adoptions, increase spay/neutering, reduce euthanasia, eliminate animal cruelty, build Homeless Pet Clubs and assist in other aspects of animal care for local rescue organizations."

Donations at the Georgia Gives Day website may be earmarked as dedications, honoring loved ones or pets.
