Pittsburgh has its act together!
October is Sudden Cardiac Awareness Month, and Pittsburgh Gives, a Pittsburrgh charity is once again setting up a matching fund. The way this works is that, if you make a donation to a deserving charity on their list - and my biased favorite is The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation in Wexford, PA - the Pittsburgh Gives Foundation will split the matching pool among all the participating charities, pro-rata. For example, if the charities raise $400,000 and the matching pool were $100,000 each of the participating charities would receive an extra $25 for every $100 they raised.
