*A special message from our Executive Director*
Reflecting on the past few years, I can’t believe how fast The World Is Fun has grown. Evolving from an idea to build community and promote philanthropy in young Seattleites to a 100% volunteer run 501(c)3 organization has been quite the journey. TWIF has gained the talents of a wonderful volunteer staff making everything run smoothly, formed priceless relationships with dozens of Seattle’s greatest nonprofit organizations, built a volunteer force exceeding 1200 individuals, and most importantly, TWIF met you.
Maybe you participated in Beard and Stache Fest and helped TWIF turn Seattle whisker-crazy to help foster kids. Maybe you helped us cook up some delicious curry to feed the hungry. Or, maybe you simply told us you like what we’re doing.
Without support in all these ways, TWIF would not be where we are today. TWIF has been so fortunate to be able to run our programs solely on the generous support we’ve received. This generosity has allowed TWIF to not only grow our own programs, but to help other Seattle nonprofits that we believe in. With the growth of TWIF’s programs, our expenses have begun to exceed our current funding. In order to continue doing what we do we need your help.
I hope you have found a positive experience with TWIF and that you have seen firsthand the impact that we’ve been able to make with your help. TWIF’s goal to propel our feeding program into 2012 is $9000. I know this sounds like a big number, but we at TWIF believe that the bigger number is 3600. With your help, this is how many meals we can deliver to those who need it most.
Skip your Tuesday latte or pass on dessert at the restaurant on Friday night and instead join us in maximizing the impact we can make on our community. Any amount truly does make a difference. On behalf of TWIF’s board of directors, volunteer staff, and those whose lives we’ve touched, I ask you to please consider making a one time or recurring donation to TWIF and to help us spread the word by sharing this opportunity with your friends, family, and colleagues.

Thank you for your support.
