By  | 

ROANOKE, Va. What a difference a day can make.

The 24-hour online fundraiser Roanoke Valley Gives kicks off at midnight.

And this year, more than 160 non-profits hope to raise more than $800,000.

Michelle Eberly is the Director of Grants and Donor Engagement for the Community Foundation Serving Western Virginia.

"It is really easy to donate," Eberly told us. "You don't have to have a lot of money to support these organizations. The minimum donation is $10. And we see a lot of $10 gifts come through."

Last year, more than 6,000 people took part in the online fundraiser, and donated more than $700,000.
