High-five fundraiser planned Thursday

FARGO – Lend A Hand will host a high-five fundraiser Thursday in recognition of National High Five Day.

Anyone donating online to Lend A Hand at www.

impactgiveback.org on Thursday will trigger a “high five” e-card and video to people they’re honoring with a virtual palm-slap.

Dakota Medical Foundation will match every gift of $5 or greater to Lend A Hand.

The organization will then distribute all funds raised to families experiencing a medical crisis in Cass and Clay counties.

Students in the Minnesota State University-Moorhead events planning class prepared videos and challenged the public to compete in a video contest on the Lend A Hand Facebook site. Portions of the winning videos will be in the video sent to individuals on behalf of high-five contributors.
