GiveBIG on May 6!

SAVE THE DATE: MAY 6 is GiveBIG!

Have you ever asked yourself how The Project Room can produce free public online and on-site programs of such high quality? Have you attended an event, read an essay online, or listened to a podcast and wondered how to show your support?

Now is your chance to be part of the answer.

On May 6 from midnight to midnight, you can make a one-time online donation as part of the 24-hour fundraising marathon known as GiveBIG!

Breaking News: If you donate $100 or more, you will receive an awesome party favor in the form of a custom TPR ring made by artist Seth Friedman (see below for image).

The Project Room is supported through individual donations from people who listen to our podcasts, read our online essays, or attend live events (special thanks to those who do all three!).

This is the one time of year when we ask you to click on this link and make a quick donation so we can bring new and exciting programs to you from all kinds of inspiring creative people.

WIN A GOLDEN TICKET

Throughout GiveBIG day, donors will be chosen at random to win golden tickets, providing an additional $1,000 in the winner's name to the nonprofit that received their original donation. The winner will also receive a $100 Starbucks or Taco Time gift card! And, we'll also be giving away airline tickets to nonprofits throughout the day, courtesy of Alaska Airlines!

Please mark you calendar for May 6 and GiveBIG!

Throughout our communities, there are heroes: working to improve lives, to strengthen families, to better our world. GiveBIG 2014 honors the heroes in our community.
