Non Profit Organizations
There are many great Lake Tahoe Non Profit Organizations that could use
your assistance...either financially, or your time! I'm a firm believer
in giving back! No matter what your circumstances are, there is always
someone in worse shape than you are.
Every time the Truckee Travel Guide Facebook page reaches a new "100" likes, I'll donate $0.10 per "Like" to a Truckee area Non-Profit Organization! Small to start, but will grow over time as the Facebook page grows! One of my big goals with the TTG Website is to assist with marketing the causes and events of the great Non-Profit Organizations!
So...If you have not yet "Liked" the Truckee Travel Guide Facebook page, you can do so below!
If you run a Non Profit Organization in Truckee or the local Lake Tahoe area, please see my Truckee Advertising Options page - I am offering FREE Directory Listing Advertising and FREE Featured Page Advertising
for ALL Local Non Profits! I would love to get a page set up on my
website, for each Non Profit that features YOUR cause and help you
