GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event, inspiring people to give generously to the nonprofit organizations (like Seattle Public Library!!) that make our region a healthier and more vital place to live.
Each donation up to $5,000 per donor, per organization, made to the 1,600 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight Pacific Time on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, will receive a prorated portion of The Seattle Foundation’s matching funds, or “stretch pool.” The amount of the “stretch” depends on how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day. As long as you have access to the web and a credit card, you can participate!
You can also narrow your search to organizations that are geared to, staffed by, or serving teens… Nonprofit orgs 4 teens. This list includes many organizations near ‘n dear to our library ❤ including (but not limited to):
This time of year always seems to bring out the goodwill in humankind. If you’re a teen and looking to contribute someway to your community there are plenty of opportunities available for you. The Columbia Teen Advisers spent their last meeting filling out cards for the Holiday Mail for Heroes project through the American Red Cross. The deadline for cards to be delivered is December 6, 2013, so mail your cards soon!
Feel like doing something more local? There are plenty of options for all age ranges, try these on for size:
Treehouse – giving foster kids a childhood and a future.
Rainier Community Center – Each month there is a community dinner that you can help prepare. Each month is a different theme or country and you work with other chefs to prepare the meal the community eats together.
