9News offers up a “Word of Thanks” every week during Next with Kyle Clark – it’s a chance to highlight small and medium non-profits doing crucial work in Colorado.
The routine is simple. Each week, Kyle presents a new organization he’d like to highlight and asks you to consider just a $5 donation. He won’t share any cause that he won’t donate to himself and will match the first fifty donations of $5 every time. Visit our Word of Thanks page here.
