About Give 5

Austin Give 5 is an annual campaign where Austin-area businesses pledge to donate 5% of their gross sales from Earth Day to benefit nine Austin environmental non-profits. Austinites are encouraged to EAT, SHOP, and PLAY on Friday, April 20, 2018 in support of these local businesses and in the spirit of keeping Austin green, clean, and healthy.
