  2. Post on at least one social media platform (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, or LinkedIn) that you gave early to The Gathering Place. *You must tag The Gathering Place and use the official Colorado Gives Day hashtag #COGivesDay in order to qualify.

Winners will be contacted the week of December 5 to claim your prize. Good luck and thank you for supporting The Gathering Place! If you have any questions about the giveaway, please contact Digital Fundraising Manager Jenny Scrivens at
