givingtuesdayMany have heard of the day for thanks and the day for deals but what about a day to give back? On Giving Tuesday, December 1st 2015 charities, families, businesses, and students around the world have on common purpose: to celebrate the spirit of giving!

At Merge, we are accepting donations in our GoFundMe to give away 25 Bridge Brigade care packages in February 2016. This is the largest care package offered through our social enterprise, The Bridge and it includes: Binders, Dividers, Erasers, Folders, Highlighters, Candy Bars, Cookies, Crackers, Drink Mix, Fruit Snacks, Hand Soap, Lotion, Mouthwash, Pocket Tissue, Sanitizing Wipes, Laundry Detergent, Laundry Basket, Jelly, Noodles, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal, and so much more!


Full-time college students from low-income families who attend USF, UT, St. Leo, or HCC are eligible. If you would like to nominate a student you know, send an email to by Sunday, January 3, 2016.

Or, GIVE so we can give valuable items to students in need when they need it most.
