Red Basket has a new way to spread Tremendous Good! Red Basket will participate in Omaha Gives! on May 21.


Omaha Gives! is a 24 hour online fundraising event led by the Omaha Community Foundation to bring the community together to support local nonprofits through online fundraising. On May 21, Red Basket will raise money for the Good Start Fund, our program that gives an early boost to new stories posted on Red Basket. As long as there’s at least $50 in the fund, new stories will receive a $50 donation from Red Basket immediately after their story is published. Money raised through Omaha Gives! will be granted to Askers in the Metro Area, ensuring they get a Good Start.


As an Omaha Gives! participant, Red Basket is eligible for prizes! Matching funds will be granted based on our overall donations generated on May 21, and there will be random hourly drawings for cash. We’re only eligible for prizes if we have donors. All you have to do to help us win is make a $10 donation through the Omaha Gives! website and ask your friends to do the same by sharing your gift on social media. From midnight to midnight on Wednesday, May 21, visit and select Red Basket. We’re excited to be a part of this new way to spread Tremendous Good!
