May 3rd - set aside as "MT Gives" day. Hundreds of non-profit organizations across the state signed up to benefit from the generosity of folks who could simply sign-on to the MT Gives website and make a donation, designating it for a particular place. Simple - easy peasy.
Until…. technology failed. And folks couldn’t get the website to work, take their donation, etc. And a colossal fail took place. Very disappointing!!
So what happens when technology fails? Do we just not give? Do folks just have to suffer because it’s not as convenient to financially support them? Let’s hope not.
Still, very frustrating that such a great idea took such a turn. Maybe next time!!
