    The 2nd annual Fairfield County Giving Day is March 5th: 24 hours of philanthropy and fun to raise money for local nonprofits. We came in 3rd last year and have our eyes on the top prize of $25,000: If we win, Domus Executive Director Mike Duggan will KISS A COW! (He’ll do it for the MOO-Lah!) We'll have a fun field trip for the kids so they can see the SMOOCH (the bovine buss, one might say) up close. We need lots of $10 gifts to help us win the $25k for literacy efforts so our kids have plenty of engaging, interesting to read (cow books?). DONATE HERE starting at midnight on 3/5.
