Giving Tuesday launched in 2012 as a way to put all the money you planned to spend, and saved, in ‘Black-Friday’ to ‘Cyber Monday’ deals to work in your community. This year, The World is Fun is participating with an opportunity to donate directly, and offers some great rewards for doing so (beyond the usual betterment of the community and personal fulfillment).
With so many organizations out there, we want to remind everyone why we are awesome, and offer a few reasons to donate to TWIF:
10. We’re 6 years old; new enough to be nimble and creative, but established enough to make a big impact. We are hopeful enough to ask for funds, and connected and experienced enough to put them to work!
9. TWIF launched after uniting 550 mustachioed guys in an effort that raised $38,000 for King County foster kids. But we’re not stopping there and have held hundreds of events and have a bold plan for 2016 and beyond!
8. We’re a 100% volunteer-run organization. Your donation goes directly to our programs in the Seattle community, not our salaries.
7. We're redefining what volunteering is in Seattle by helping people, businesses & nonprofits get involved (not one or the other).
6. TWIF brings social networking offline by connecting people to volunteer activities that fit each individual’s interests.
5. We love to plan charitable events that are impactful & obtainable (yes, it’s possible). We’ve supported more than 380 fantastic community events!
4. We help solve challenges faced by our fellow nonprofits by dreaming up & executing unique solutions that bring them closer to their goals.
3. Our core of over 4,000 dedicated TWIF-ers give their service, time, and passion to the Seattle community! Your donation will allow us to give even more.
2. A donation of $30 will earn you a TWIF membership, which is a gift that keeps on giving!
1. TWIF fundraising directly benefits more than 70 nonprofits & organizations in Seattle. That’s a 70x impact for every dollar donated!
We are thrilled to be part of the betterment of our community, and excited to do even more with your help! Be sure to check out the giving page to donate directly, view the giving levels, and see the exclusive swag and fun opportunities for those who choose to make a gift to TWIF.
