Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: GiveBIG on May 10th!

Rockaholics Helping Rockaholics

May 4, 2017

This coming Wednesday is a very special day, Rockaholics. Officially deemed GiveBIG by the Seattle Foundation, it's a day we're all encouraged to dig deep into our pockets and support some pretty incredible organizations in our area., and you know we are big on Rockaholics Helping Rockaholics. When you do, use #GiveBIG and follow along all day long as we make a difference!

 

Our communities have the unique opportunity to create massive change by coming together and giving on Wednesday May 10th. More than 500 area non profits have reported securing matching funds from a variety of sources totaling more than $7.5 million on May 10th! The more we give, the greater impact we can create in Seattle! Here are a few organizations involved with #GiveBIG that KISW has worked closely with over the years through Mens Room Original Red, Pain In The Grass, Pearl Jam's Vitalogy Foundation, Walk MS and Bike MS, Base 2 Space and more:

Friends of the VA Puget Sound Fisher House

Bureau Of Fearless Ideas

Downtown Emergency Services Center

National MS Society – Greater NW Chapter

Motley Zoo Animal Rescue

Fred Hutch

 

And that's just the tip of the iceberg...

 

Are you a Sounders fan? Here's one way they're getting involved.

 

Through the Seattle Art Museum, $25,000 will be matched!

 

Last year, #GiveBIG raised $15.9 million online from 45,000 donors, and we believe the community can blow that out of the water in 2017! Browse or search the entire list of non profits here, and if you'd like to, you can even schedule your donation ahead of next Wednesday's big event! We're so excited to support organizations near and dear to our hearts, and we hope you will join us to #GiveBIG on May 10th, because THAT is Rockaholics Helping Rockaholics

 

Happy Adventuring,
