To celebrate generosity in the lead-up to Give to the Max Day 2017, GiveMN will be giving 10 Minnesotans $1,000 to give to the nonprofit or school of their choice, starting November 6 with Chastity Brown. But before they can make their gift, they have to pay it forward and select the next person to make a difference in their community.
