I read that RiseUpGifts.org is only for Minnesota communities. Any plans to add Arizona and Florida?

Hi Mary, thanks for your question. Gifts made through RiseUpGifts.org benefit The Link, a 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves victims of sexual exploitation and sex trafficking. Your gift above and beyond the value of goods and services received may qualify as a charitable deduction for federal income tax purposes. Please consult a tax advisers or the IRS to determine whether this contribution is deductible. Thanks, Erin Flaherty, Public Affairs

Hi Laurie, thanks for your question. Mayo Clinic's involvement in RiseUpGifts.org is part of our efforts as a founding sponsor of the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee. In particular, RiseUpGifts.org is an effort to leverage the heightened media attention surrounding the Super Bowl to raise awareness of sex trafficking and inspire people to make a difference. While RiseUpGifts.org primarily benefits sex trafficking victims in Minnesota, Mayo Clinic is using its social media platforms to extend an awareness campaign to a national audience. Thanks, Erin Flaherty, Public Affairs
