GiveNOLA 2016 Update

From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU for sticking with us through the roller coaster ride that we’ve been on over the past 72 hours!

What happened?

This year, the GiveNOLA website started experiencing technical difficulties around 9 am Tuesday.  All in all, our GiveNOLA donation page was down for 10+ hours.

Thank you for an INCREDIBLE show of support!

In the past 24 hours with confirmation emails and pledges coming in from friends and family, we are now thrilled to report that

we are just over the $20,000 mark with gifts from 70 individuals!!!!

Please note that we are still processing information manually, and the final GiveNOLA transaction report is still not accessible.   If you made a donation, but have not received an email confirmation from PlayBuild please reach out immediately at

Help us cross the finish line!

Our goal for this year’s GiveNOLA was $25,000.  Miraculously and thanks to all of you, it is now within reach!

With only $5,000 to go, we are keeping the flame alive until the end of today.  Point your browser at before 5 pm and your contribution will still count towards our GiveNOLA total.
