Dear GV Community:
We would like to cordially invite you to the Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG event on Thursday, June 23rd from 7am to midnight. GiveBIG is a community-wide giving challenge which is excepted to be one of the biggest online giving events in King County history.
You don’t need to put on fancy dress clothes or buy a ticket. You can donate from the comfort of your own computer, and you can live anywhere in the Northwest to participate. If you can get online, you can GiveBIG.
What is GiveBIG?
GiveBIG is a community-wide challenge created by The Seattle Foundation that will increase the size of your donation to us. This new, one day, online charitable giving event will rally together our community on behalf of all the amazing nonprofit organizations in King County, including Global Visionaries.
How will it work?
GiveBIG will help stretch donations in several ways:
- Grow your gift! The Seattle Foundation and local businesses will match a share of every contribution made through the Seattle Foundation’s Online Giving Center between 7:00am and midnight.
- Win a golden ticket! During the day, you could be chosen at random to have your charity of choice-Global Visionaries-receive an additional $1000 from GiveBIG sponsors.
How can I help?
- Mark your calender!
- Rally your friends and family! Emails, Facebook, Twitter (#GiveBIG), phone calls, and in-person conversations are all great ways to spread the word and to take advantage of GiveBIG.
- Please RSVP on Facebook! By doing so, you will receive reminders about the event and will find helpful information that will guide you through the process.
Thank you in advance for giving big! With your help, we can continue our mission of “empowering young people to become global leaders in creating a just and sustainable future” by providing scholarships to our low-income participants both here and abroad.
The Global Visionaries Team
