Ignite the Change!


I have great news. Special Olympics’ partner FINISH LINE-a leading athletic retailer- is offering an exciting challenge:

Through December 31, 2015, FINISH LINE will match your tax-deductible donation, dollar for dollar, up to a campaign total of $200,000.

This Ignite the Change Matching Fund will double the impact of every dollar you give. That means Special Olympics will be able to do more for our athletes … reach farther to engage new athletes … and show the world more than ever what people with intellectual disabilities can accomplish.

Special Olympics athletes are inspiring. They take our breath away every day with their spirit, strength, resiliency, determination, and enthusiasm. They face daunting obstacles, and they triumph.

Your support of Special Olympics can help ignite life-changing opportunities for athletes in Louisiana and all over the world-especially now, when your donation will have twice the impact.

Now is the time to Ignite the Change! Remember, the chance to double your gift to Special Olympics Louisiana ends December 31, so please make your secure, online contribution today.

Make sure your gift is matched! We cannot match previously made contributions. Please use the links in this email to contribute by December 31st.
