How to use the extra day



Awareness Groups and organizations, needing to raise money, could throw a Leap Year Ball or Leap Year Dance, to benefit their cause.

The whole year is a Leap Year. From January 1, to December 31. The event could be in any season. What a fun way to raise money.

If your organization is planning to throw a Leap Year Ball, please let us know. We'd like to keep track of how many Leap Year Balls and Leap Year Party's will be taking place in Leap Year 2012. Just email Raenell

February 29, Leap Day, happens once every four years and it's everyone's extra day. Below is one example.
