If you’ve ever even thought about donating to a non-profit, today’s the day to do it: GiveMN’s Give to the Max Day will give your donation recipient the chance to receive matching funds from corporate donors and other orgs.

Last week we asked for suggestions for one or two of the many non-profits to donate to, and we heard some great ones: the Urban Arts Academy, Person to Person, Open Arms Minnesota, Second Harvest Heartland, MN Women of Today, MN Youth Symphonies, Union Gospel Mission, Camp Fire USA Minnesota Council, and of course the American Lung Association.

And because today’s Give to the Max Day is pretty much a full blown holiday, there’s a ton of events happening around today’s donation festivities.  You can see many of them at the #gtmd2010 hashtag.

The Uptake is also doing a live telethon, hosted by Dr. Garry, aka master thespian Charles Olsen:
