Midnight Deadline to GiveBIG for Trails

Posted by Rebecca Lavigne at Jun 23, 2011 07:13 AM |

Ready, set, go! Hikers are already going online to GiveBIG to Washington Trails Association, and help make today the biggest day ever of charitable giving in our region.

Unless you've been out backpacking under the stars (or the rain clouds, more likely), you've probably heard about today's GiveBIG challenge sponsored by The Seattle Foundation. WTA is one of hundreds of local nonprofits participating in this one-day online event.

When you GiveBIG to WTA, we'll receive 100% of what you give, plus additional matching funds for a portion of your contribution. The more you and your fellow hikers contribute, the greater WTA's share of matching funds -- and the more we can achieve for trails.

To participate, simply make a gift to WTA through The Seattle Foundation's website between 7am and midnight tonight, June 23 -- and encourage your friends to do the same.

One more thing: If you donate through The Seattle Foundation website today, you could be chosen at random to have a nonprofit of your choice receive an additional $1,000, or even $5,000! One lucky Golden Ticket winner will be chosen every hour.

So what are you waiting for? Just click here and give as generously as you can.
