Almost too many gifts to count!
Thank you to all our participants this year—we exceeded the amount we raised last year for a total of $59,005.51, but we're still counting last minute and pledged gifts. Stay tuned for the Grand Total to be announced!

Happy Hour for #tlugreatgive
As of 5 p.m., we've raised over $40,000 and we couldn't have done it without you!
Now that you're heading off to happy hour, consider making a gift for the same amount you would spend on a drink or snack. It's a great way to kickoff your weekend!

See who got a pie in the face!
Check Twitter to see photos of everyone who got a pie in the face for #tlugreatgive! We have a few more challenges to meet, so let's get giving!
A big THANK YOU to the Seguin community for your involvement—catch the MAYOR getting a pie in the face on Thursday, April 10 at noon at City Hall.

Over $30,000 at 3 p.m.
We reached $30,000 at 3 p.m., but there are still nine hours left for #tlugreatgive. We're nearly halfway to our goal!

NEW Challenge Gift!
We've just received ANOTHER challenge gift from Board of Regent Bob Oliver and his wife Karin. They will match the next $10,000 given today! Come on, Bulldogs, let's get to there before noon!

First Challenge Reached!
As of 10 a.m., we've reached our first challenge goal of $5,000. Board of Regent Susan Evers pledged to match up to $5,000 raised this morning and we've done it thanks to your help! Total is 11,690.13 and growing, but we need YOU to meet our final goal for this year's #TLUGreatGive!

We have some great graphics you can use on social media to show your support for #tlugreatgive. Download a Facebook Cover image and Twitter Header image to help spread the word and you can share and retweet our images, too. Then there are hashtags—so much more than #tlugreatgive—that you can use year-round to talk about how much you love TLU.
Once you've given on Friday, don't forget to change your profile image to the "I Gave" button, or post the button on your timeline.

Pie in the Face to Support Great Give
We want to encourage more participation from alumni, students, faculty and staff to help reach our goal for 2014, but we need your help.
We’re looking for faculty/staff volunteers to take a pie in the face when we reach participation and monetary goals throughout the 24-hour giving window.
This is a great way to get a quick whipped cream facial and support TLU at the same time.
