Giving Locally

After learning her home city of Austin, Texas ranked the 48th most charitable city in the country despite its strong economy, Patsy Woods Martin launched I Live Here I Give Here (ILHIGH) in 2007 to encourage Austinites to better meet the needs of their community. In other words, she wanted her neighbors and community members to give locally. To get Austinites to be more charitable, ILHIGH uses games, competitions, clever marketing, and a sense of community.
