From the Atlanta Jewish Times:
Like other Jewish organizations that have run one-day crowdfunding campaigns on the Charidy.com platform the past couple of years, Chabad of Forsyth lined up three sets of donors to match contributions on a 3-to-1 basis, so that each dollar pledged was worth $4 to the first Jewish congregation in Forsyth County.
