Smart Talk is live Friday morning at Lancaster's historic Central Market for the second annual Extraordinary Give fundraising campaign.

The Lancaster County Community Foundation says "The 2013 Extraordinary Give is the region’s largest day of online giving and will benefit 260 regional participating nonprofit organizations.  For 24-hours only on November 22, individuals can visit  and donate to an organization of their choice; from supporting kids, health and education to the environment, animals and the arts. Every dollar donated will be stretched by $250,000 from the Lancaster County Community Foundation and presenting sponsor Rodgers & Associates."  A full list of participating organizations from around Central PA (including witf) is here:

Appearing on Smart Talk will be Sam Bressi, CEO of the Lancaster County Community Foundation, Lancaster Mayor Rick Gray, runners running from Lancaster Airport to Central Market to raise money for the CWS Lancaster Immigration and Refugee Program, and Paulette Battenfelder, Regional Executive Director of the Susquehanna Valley Office of Make-A-Wish Philadelphia and Susquehanna Valley, along with a Make-A-Wish child.  Ms. Battenfelder has promised to tell the story of Batkid the hero who saved Gotham City and whose exploits went viral last weekend.

Be sure to give and stop by to say hello.
