Walmart Gives $125,000 to 17 Nonprofits on the Second Day of‪ Holiday Facebook Campaign‪

On the second day of its “12 Days of Giving” Facebook campaign, Walmart is awarding $125,000 to 17 nonprofits that are building a brighter future for children across the country. Over twelve consecutive days, the company will award a total of $1.5 million to 145 organizations in all 50 states, Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico.

Organizations being honored on the company's Facebook page today are serving communities in: Alabama, Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New York, Pennsylvania South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, Washington and West Virginia.‪
“Our Facebook campaign led us to so many organizations that are empowering our next generation this holiday season and year-round," said Julie Gehrki, senior director at the Walmart Foundation. "We believe that children are our brightest hope for the future, and the organizations that we are honoring today share that belief."
Walmart’s call for nominations for its "12 Days of Giving" Facebook campaign resulted in more than 5,400 nominations from Facebook users who shared photos and short descriptions of a nonprofit’s impact in its local community. A panel from the Walmart Foundation reviewed submissions and selected nonprofits with a focus on organizations that are providing basic needs such as food, shelter, clothing and baby supplies.‪
