The 24 hour online fundraiser is helping many charities.
Ronald McDonald House is one of them.
And our own Rebecca Lebak helped out, by rocking outside the building.
The volunteer efforts support families who are waiting to rock their babies currently in the hospital.
Each rocker is trying to raise $4,000 in their two hour shift.
Jill Christopher, RMHC executive director: "We want to do something that would draw a little extra attention to our families and really one of the things, particularly in our North House here that our families are waiting to do is take their babies home from the hospital."
Just before 5 p.m., the amount raised for Giving Hearts Day charities was at $3.3 million and counting.
